Chromium Picolinate, 250 capsules, 200 mcg
Chromium is an essential trace mineral nutrient.
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.
Research indicates that Chromium may:
- Work together with insulin, chromium is a vital part of the body's natural mechanism for controlling blood sugar levels
- help support healthy weight maintenance
- support healthy cholesterol balance
- may support healthy vision
Chroimium Picolinate can also be found in Supplement Spot?s Healthy Cholesterol, which is a finely tuned formula of herbal extracts that assist in combating high cholesterol without the cost and nauseating side effects of statin drugs.
