Chromium picolinate consists of the element chromium bound to picolinic acid (a substance normally found in the body). The picolinate form of chromium is believed to be considerably more bioavailable than other chromium compounds and picolinic acid happens to have cancer-preventing properties of its own.

Chromium is an essential trace mineral involved in glucose metabolism, regulation of insulin levels, and maintenance of healthy blood levels of cholesterol and other lipids. In the body chromium is transformed into its biologically active form, known as glucose tolerance factor, in which it is complexed with nicotinic acid. This complex facilitates the interaction of insulin with its receptor.

Dietary chromium intake in the developed countries is said to be roughly half of the generally accepted minimum (50 micrograms). Insufficient dietary chromium is associated with maturity-onset diabetes and with cardiovascular diseases.

Chromium picolinate supplements have been widely promoted as agents for producing significant and long-term weight loss, metabolic rate increases, appetite control, lowered serum cholesterol, blood sugar regulation, increased energy and stamina, reduced body fat, larger muscles, and for treatment and prevention of diabetes and alcoholism. The claims made for these uses are mostly extrapolations from biochemical experiments and animal studies, and many may turn out to be exaggerations. Nevertheless, animal studies have shown that high doses of chromium do produce increased lean body mass, decreased fat mass, decreased growth of tumors, improved insulin activity, and increased life spans and it is reasonable to think that chromium has similar effects in humans.
