Quick Overview

    Product Description

    Chromium in the form of picolinate has been widely studied for glycemic control and other metabolic derangements associated with insulin resistance. A review of clinical studies found 13 of 15 trials yielded significant improvement in at least one parameter of glucose control – including decreased blood glucose, normalization of hemoglobin A1C (a sign of long-term control), lower insulin levels in hyperinsulinemia, and improved lipid profiles. Decreases in carbohydrate cravings have also been noted. Recent evidence suggests chromium picolinate may have an antidepressant
    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.
