Product Overview

Chromium Picolinate

Chromium is an essential mineral that may help the body maintain normal blood sugar levels.* Chromium, in a form called chromium picolinate, has been studied for its potential role in altering body composition.* Preliminary research in animals and humans1 suggested that chromium picolinate may support fat loss and support a gain in lean muscle tissue.* Double-blind research has also reported a reduction in body fat2 and body weight3 in people given 400 mcg of chromium (as chromium picolinate) per day for three months.*

I like what it does for my surgery level and usage. I have a bit more energy after workouts when I'm taking this.

I started taking this supplement to curb my sweet tooth. Chromium balances the body's glucose levels and helps immensely with sugary cravings. I take 1 pill per day and after three weeks of taking it daily (you have to give your body time to react to it, just like with any new thing you introduce) I noticed a significant drop in my cravings for sugar. This is definitely a staple in my daily vitamin intake.

I try to stay away from simple carbs, however I just can't seam to pass up anything chocolate. I take chromium to stave off insulin resistance (which appears to be an epidemic in America), and to ensure that I have plenty of glycogen stores for my next intense workout.
