Research discovered that Chromium
works with insulin to help metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
Insulin depends on chromium to help move sugar and fat into the body’s cells, where the nutrients either are burned for fuel or stored. Although essential to metabolic function, chromium is not produced by the body and must be included in the diet.
Chromium forms part of a compound in the body known as Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF), which is involved
in regulating the action of insulin in maintaining blood sugar levels. It is an essential trace mineral that aids in
glucose and maintenance of healthy blood levels of cholesterol and other lipids.
Chromium Picolinate was developed because it is more easily absorbed by your body that just Chromium alone. Picolinate is simply an organic compound that enhances absorption of chromium from the digestive tract. A patent was issued for this form of Chromium called Chromium Picolinate which has been shown to be much more effective than Chromium itself.
