Chromium Picolinate

Chromium picolinate is a nutritional supplement that works to increase the efficiency of insulin. Small quantities of chromium are needed for glucose utilization by insulin in normal health, but deficiency is extremely rare. No biochemical basis for the human body's need for chromium has been identified.

Chromium picolinate is a combination of the chromium and picolinic acid. Chromium is a naturally-occurring mineral, trace amounts of which are found in everyday foods like meat, poultry, fish, and whole-grain breads. hen foods are processed, they are stripped of natural chromium, making American diets generally low in chromium. In 1968, it was demonstrated that when animals don't receive adequate levels of chromium, insulin is not optimally effective. This led the FDA to recommend a daily chromium intake of approximately 130 mcg, as infinitesimal amounts of chromium are needed to aid the transport of blood glucose across cell membranes

Combining chromium with picolinic acid simply aids in efficient chromium absorption.
