What Is It?
Chromium picolinate is a highly utilizable form of chromium, promoting healthy glucose and lipid metabolism, as well as enzyme activation.
Uses For Chromium (picolinate)
Glucose and Fat Metabolism: Optimal levels of chromium are essential for proper glucose and lipid metabolism. One small study suggests that chromium picolinate may reduce the risk of insulin resistance, and therefore possibly may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. FDA concludes, however, that the existence of such a relationship between chromium picolinate and either insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes is highly uncertain.
What Is The Source?
Chromium is sourced naturally from earthen ore. Picolinate is synthetic. Hypoallergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.
