Chromium Picolinate (200 mcg)

by Vitabase

  • Key mineral to the effective functioning of insulin in the body
  • One of the more easily absorbed forms of Chromium

Chromium is an essential mineral. While it may be found in a variety of foods, as many as 90% of American diets are low in chromium. Low chromium levels may result in an increase in blood sugar, triglycerides and cholesterol.

Chromium supports effective functioning of insulin. Insulin is needed for transporting glucose to cells for energy production. Diabetes results when the body cannot create enough insulin or has trouble using it effectively. Chromium has been shown in numerous studies to be beneficial in supporting healthy blood sugar levels already within a healthy range.

Chromium picolinate is one of the most popular forms of chromium available and is used in hundreds of different supplements. It is a combination of the element chromium and picolinic acid. The addition of picolinic acid aids in the ability of chromium to be absorbed.
