Chromium is an essential mineral. This high-potency product delivers 200 mcg of Chromium as Chromium Picolinate per serving, which is 667% of the Daily Value
established for this nutrient. It comes in a yeast-free formula.
The Chromium in this product is trivalent chromium which is the most desired form. This product is specially formulated to provide nutritive support for assisting the body in maintaining normal, healthy insulin action and glucose utilization.
Chromium Picolinate is thought to be the best source of chromium. Chromium is a trace mineral that is essential to the body. Chromium was first discovered as an essential trace element in 1955. In 1959, the mineral was identified as an active component in human nutrition. We now know that chromium is an essential partner to efficient insulin action. Insulin is a hormone that stabilizes the body's blood sugar level. Chromium Picolinate is a combination of the element chromium and picolinic acid. Combining chromium with picolinic acid simply aids in efficient chromium absorption.
The body of an average healthy individual contains only several milligrams of Chromium. However, this small amount plays important roles in the enhancement of insulinís effectiveness, regulation of blood sugar levels, and the activation of various enzymes for energy production. It is thought that most people have some degree of chromium depletion in their bodies, and that the Western diet diet and eating habits frequently fail to supply sufficient chromium for daily needs. Good chromium food sources include whole grain breads and cereals, lean meats, cheeses, and some condiments, such as black pepper and thyme. Nutritional yeast is also rich in chromium.
Research shows that chromium is an essential part of our diet. Chromium picolinate can have many beneficial results when supplemented. It enhances insulin's effect in the body, improving the uptake of glucose, thereby causing better blood circulation and maintenance of blood sugar level. Gaining energy, burning fat, and building muscle with greater ease are attributed to chromium, to name a few. It assists the body in losing weight by helping it to build muscle to replace fat. Lowering body fat and increasing lean body mass are just a few of the positive properties that chromium picolinate exhibits on the body.
A recent study supports the idea that chromium can boost muscle tissue. In this research, carried out at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, 40 collegiate swimmers were divided into two groups, with one group (10 males and 10 females) ingesting 400mcg of chromium picolinate per day for 24 weeks and the other group (also 10 males and 10 females) following a normal, non-supplemented diet. The two groups trained in identical fashion.
