Chromium Info

Chromium is an essential trace mineral important for maintaining blood sugar levels within the normal range. It is a central component of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF) molecule, a hormone-like compound that enhances insulin activity in moving glucose from the blood into cells. Because tissue sensitivity to insulin is increased, less insulin is needed, leading to reduced fat deposits.

Chromium is also needed for several liver functions including fatty acid, lecithin, cholesterol and lipoprotein metabolism.

Vitamin C and niacin (vitamin B3) both increase dietary chromium absorption, which is stored in the liver, spleen, soft tissue and bones of the body. Unfortunately, modern food processing methods destroy much of the chromium content of food. The typical modern diet, high in refined foods with added sugar, creates a chromium deficiency.

Chromium Benefits

Chromium supplements may benefit people who consume a high sugar diet, which leads to increased urinary excretion of chromium. Other factors that can reduce chromium stores are infection, strong exercise, stress, pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Specific benefits of chromium include maintaining balanced blood sugar levels, controlling glucose and fatty acid metabolism, improving energy, managing food cravings and reducing the need for insulin (leading to improved arterial health).

People with diabetes types I and II, hypoglycaemia, sugar cravings, obesity, low energy or high cholesterol may benefit from taking a chromium supplement.

Chromium Side Effects

Safe when used as directed. Consult your health practitioner before taking if you are diabetic, hypoglycaemic, on medication, pregnant or breastfeeding.

  • Could be on to something major!

    star

    It may be too soon to tell, but I think these are helping my menstrual migraines that I’ve had every 2 weeks for 30 years.
    I’ve missed a fortnightly migraine and I have more energy in the mornings than usual. I generally feel more well than before starting this supplement.
    Fingers crossed , but I’m glad I’ve started taking these tablets.

  • Stopped sore boobs but period longer

    star

    I have an estrogen dominance with low progesterone and estradiol. I decided to try this instead of DIM.
    Within in a few hours of taking first one my period seemed to arrive when I would hope it to , whereas last few months i have had long cycles.
    Boob soreness and mood challenges have been only 10% of previous months so I can say it seemed to help pms symptoms.
    However the actual period part has been heavier and longer. Those two very light days immediately after taking first dose, then 6 full proper period days. It seems to be slowing down now.
    I have not taken it today on case it's making me bleed longer.
    I'll start taking it again as soon as my boonbs or mood change next month.
    Worth a go. Has high dose of many natural helpers.
