Chromium Picolinate, an essential trace mineral: helps in blood sugar levels and cholesterol control, supports healthy vision and healthy weight, activates various enzymes for energy production.
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. The body of an average healthy individual contains only several milligrams. However, this small amount plays important roles in the enhancement of insulin�s effectiveness, regulation of blood sugar levels, and the activation of various enzymes for energy production. It is thought that most North Americans have some degree of chromium depletion in their bodies, and that the North American 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.
Supplementspot's Chromium Picolinate is available in 100 or 250 vegetarian capsules that are 200 mcg. each.
Working together with insulin, chromium is a vital part of the body�s natural mechanism for controlling blood sugar levels.
