Chromium is a mineral that improves insulin efficiency, the hormone that controls blood sugar. The chromium attaches to the receptors on the walls of the cells and allows insulin to enter glucose and amino acids. In this way, the chromium prevents blood sugar from rising. Picolinate is a derivative of amino acid that allows the body to use chromium, much more easily.
Chromium efficiency has been studied in the treatment of various health problems, including diabetes. Research has shown that most diabetics experienced a blood glucose balance after they started using Chromium Picolinate supplement on a daily basis. There is an additive to help people with diabetes (especially type 2 diabetes) and control their blood glucose levels. Therefore, the use of chromium picolinate may allow patients to reduce insulin intake and other drugs taken for the treatment of diabetes. Chromium picolinate is effective in reducing cravings for sugars and carbohydrates and thus helps in weight loss. It is also an essential addition to athletes because it increases muscle building and improves fat burning.
