Minerals & Nutrition > Chromium

Chromium has been identified as a component required for maintenance of normal blood glucose where chromium acts synergistically with insulin to facilitate cellular uptake of blood glucose.

Medical research has shown that persons with low levels of chromium in their bodies are more susceptible to having cancer, heart problems and diabetes.

Chromium supplementation has been found to improve glucose tolerance in elderly adults who have low blood chromium levels and chromium in our diet as chromium:
  • helps maintain stable blood sugar levels through proper insulin utilization
  • supports the metabolism of glucose
  • cleans the arteries by reducing cholesterol & triglyceride levels;
  • helps transport amino acids to where the body needs them;
  • helps control the appetite;
  • synthesize cholesterol, fats and protein
  • supports other insulin-dependent activities such as protein and lipid metabolism
Chromium Deficiency Symptoms:
  • Glucose intolerance
  • diabetes
  • atherosclerosis
  • heart disease
  • depressed growth
  • obesity
  • tiredness
  • anxiety
  • fatigue
Dietary sources of chromium
Whole grains, potatoes, oysters, liver, seafood, cheese, meat, brewer's yeast and nutritional supplements.
