- Product Details
Chromium is part of the GTF (Glucose Tolerance Factor) molecule.
GTF is an important cofactor for insulin in the regulation of blood sugar, which is necessary for proper metabolism.
Chromium is mainly used to stabilize blood sugar. The major role for chromium in weight loss is to correct insulin resistance caused by chromium deficiency. However, assessing chromium deficiency is difficult since normal blood levels are of such a low concentration that they can escape detection by even the most sensitive instruments. Hair and toenail levels can be evaluated, but these tests are not routinely done.
Known causes of chromium deficiency include malnutrition, TPN (total parenteral nutrition), alcoholism, and strenuous exercise, which can cause what is called “chromium duming.
The mineral chromium plays an essential role in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats and in the action of insulin. Chromium, usually in a form called chromium picolinate, has been studied for its potential role in altering body composition. Chromium has primarily been studied in body builders, with conflicting results. In people trying to lose weight, a double-blind study found that 600 mcg per day of niacin-bound chromium helped some participants lose more fat and less muscle. However, three other double-blind trials have found no effect of chromium picolinate on weight loss,though in one of these trials lean body mass that was lost during a weight-loss diet was restored by continuing to supplement chromium after the diet.
