Chromium is an essential nutrient needed by the human body. It may improve both blood sugar and energy levels by helping to transport glucose into the cells to be used for fuel. However, the body has difficulty absorbing chromium by itself, but with the addition of the protein picolinate found in this supplement, it enters the bloodstream more easily.
Chromium may help decrease sugar cravings, promote lean body mass and help decrease body fat. It may also help lower excess cortisol (which may play a role in weight loss, specifically around the abdomen), and may help boost physical endurance.
It helps increase the hormone DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), which plays many and varied roles in the body, and which may protect against many diseases.
Chromium also helps hold calcium in the bones and may help with osteoporosis.
Chromium deficiencies may occur due to ageing, over exercise, high carbohydrate diet, high intake of refined sugars, and where foods have been grown in soil that is low in chromium.
