Chromium Picolinate contains Chromium and picolinic acid. Chromium is safe for human consumption; so is picolinic acid and chromium picolinate ranks with Vitamin C and Vitamin E in terms of proven safety.
Chromium is vitally important to health, yet Chromium may be the rarest nutrient to be found in modern diet. Even diets designed by expert dieticians and nutritionists may not provide the recommended amounts of this essential nutrient. Worse still, sugar - leading cause of cancer, according to recent research - causes the body to use more of the limited amount of chromium consumed, as does exercise.
However, a safe, balanced and effective dietary supplement may be able to correct this common deficiency. There is strong evidence that, while speeding fat loss, chromium picolinate helps build muscle, lower blood cholesterol levels and optimize blood sugar.
Best Natural Sources: Calves' liver, wheatgerm brewer' s yeast, chicken, corn oil, clams,and molasses.
Preventing and controlling Diabetes:
Natures Formula Chromium Picolinate is an important supplement for blood glucose control. Chromium is an essential component in carbohydrate, lipid and protein metabolism, acting to potentiate insulin activity. By increasing tissue sensitivity to insulin, less is needed in the body. Less insulin leads to less accumulation of adipose fat, and greater ability to mobilise stored triglycerides for energy production. Numerous studies have shown chromium picolinate to improve insulin sensitivity and reduce hyperinsulinemia.
Chromium Picolinate can be an important adjunct in the control of all types of diabetes and can forestall the development of some types of diabetes. Biologically active Chromium is a cofactor of insulin. Diabetes is a condition in which there is an insulin problem. Chromium Picolinate can help moderate several of the insulin problem.
If you are have diabetes, any supplement may affect your medication. Please ensure that you and your doctor can monitor your blood sugar levels so that appropriate changes can be made to your medications.
Losing Excess Body Fat:
Chromium Picolinate is not a drug that strips away pounds of fat each week without exercising but it will assist in gaining a gradual and persistent loss of body fat.
Chromium Picolinate, when complemented with a reduction in dietary fat and increased exercise, will proportionally accelerate fat loss.
Chromium deficiency increases fat production because it slows the burning of food for energy. The non-fuel calories are then converted to fat and stored in fat tissues.
Dietary fat, according to recent research, does not appear to reduce hunger in proportion to calorie value an dis quickly stored on fat tissue. Fat is not taken into the glucostats in the appetite control center...

Pharmacology and Research of Active Ingredients:
- Chromium is a necessary component of GTF, a substance known to improve glucose tolerance by potentiating the effect of insulin on carbohydrate metabolism. Glucose intolerance is one of the signs of chromium deficiency. A large-scale clinical trial involving 180 persons afflicted with diabetes mellitus type II were administered chromium, resulting in normalisation of glucose and insulin levels in all subjects. Normalising insulin activity will result in a reduction of adipose tissue and increased muscle mass. Chromium improves the glucose/insulin system in subjects with hypoglycaemia, hyperglycaemia and hyperlipidaemia with no detectable effects on control subjects. Chromium picolinate has been shown to improve insulin binding, insulin receptor numbers, insulin internalization, beta cell sensitivity and insulin receptor enzymes with an overall increase in insulin sensitivity.
