effect, particularly in individuals with abnormal carbohydrate metabolism. Other studies have shown chromium picolinate attenuates drug-induced insulin resistance in HIV patients, increases lean-body mass in obese patients, and enhances the effect of other weight-loss strategies.
Picolinic acid is a natural mineral chelator produced in the body. Picolinic acid 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 intestine. It has been found in high concentrations
in human milk, whereas cow milk has very little. The theory is that this may enhance absorption of minerals in breast-fed infants.
