Chromium picolinate provides a high strength, bioavailable form of chromium, which helps support healthy blood sugar control and contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism.
Each tablet provides 200mcg of high quality chromium picolinate. When chromium is bound to picolinic acid it forms a complex which is highly bioavailable and far more potent than other commonly used forms.
Chromium plays an important role in the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels, and balanced blood sugar levels are very important for our health and wellbeing. It is a key part of glucose tolerance factor, which works together with insulin to support the uptake of glucose into the cells. In this way, chromium helps keep blood sugar levels balanced, and by doing this, a healthy body composition may be maintained.
Chromium is an essential trace mineral that tends to be depleted from foods by processing and refining, especially of grains. This means that the daily diet for many may not provide adequate levels of this important trace nutrient, especially those who consume a highly processed diet.
