is a trace mineral essential for the proper metabolism of cholesterol
and glucose (blood sugar), as well as insulin production and regulation.

Chromium deficiencies have been shown to aggravate and/or contribute
to, diabetes, hyper/hypo glycemias, high cholesterol, heart disease,
slow metabolism and weight fluctuation. Low intake of chromium is
associated with high blood sugar levels, glucose intolerance, and
adult onset diabetes, which in many cases is corrected or improved
with increased chromium intake.
Chromium decreases insulin resistance and reduces the body's level
of triglycerides. It also helps to control obesity and can stimulate
weight loss. Proper insulin regulation promotes the production of
serotonin, a neurotransmitter that controls the appetite and curbs
Analysis has shown that unrefined sugars and grains are rich in
chromium and other essential life supporting minerals. When chromium
is removed, (during the refining process into white sugar and flour)
the human body does not have the element it needs to effectively
deal with these two powerful energy sources. The refining of raw
sugars and grains gives them a longer shelf life. It also creates
foods which strip the body of chromium and other essential minerals
necessary for the proper metabolism of these energy foods. Consequently
the body must draw on other stores to process the sugar and flour
when consumed. This subsequently leads to mineral deficiencies and
an inability to deal with the body's other demands for chromium
and other minerals.
works best if it is taken before meals to help stabilize blood sugar.
Even if you don't consume much sugar, chromium is necessary because
the body treats most refined foods as simple glucose. If you don't
immediately burn this glucose for energy, you convert it into FAT!
In addition, chromium, which concentrates in the muscles, can help
to increase lean body mass and decrease body fat and weight. Chromium
improves the uptake of glucose in the body's cells so that it can
be metabolized to produce stable energy levels, thus helping to
reverse the effects of hypoglycemia.
