Product Information

Chromium is an essential nutrient for human life and is widely distributed in small quantities in food; however, the refining of flour and sugar has depleted chromium levels in many foods. Metabolic stress, strenuous exercise, and pregnancy can all increase chromium needs.* Studies suggest adequate chromium intake supports already normal blood glucose levels, insulin sensitivity, and sperm count.*

Chromium in the form of picolinate has been widely studied for support of blood sugar metabolism.* Decreases in carbohydrate cravings have also been noted. Other studies have shown chromium picolinate can increase lean-body mass in obese patients and enhance the effect of other weight-loss strategies.*

Picolinic acid is a natural mineral chelator produced in the body. It is produced from the amino acid tryptophan in the liver and kidneys and is transported to the pancreas. During digestion, it is secreted from the pancreas into the small intestine, where it binds to minerals to facilitate their absorption.*
