Each bottle contains 300 mg/L or approx. 1500 mcg's per teaspoon! Did you know? Chromium is required for the metabolism of sugar. Without sufficient chromium, insulin is less effective in regulating blood-glucose levels. In this way, chromium helps to control cravings and reduce hunger. Good food sources of chromium include: egg yolks, molasses, beef, hard cheese, liver, fruit juices, whole grain bread. Chromium supports heart function and is stored principally in the kidneys, spleen and testes with trace amounts found in the heart, lungs, pancreas and brain. The body cannot easily absorb chromium when consumed in compounded form (such as chromium picolinate).
Chromium helps the body regulate metabolism and regulates insulin and blood sugar levels. Chromium helps the body lose weight by stimulating enzymes that metabolize glucose for energy. It plays an important role in the liver synthesis of fatty acids (burns fat). When the body is deficient in chromium, twice the amount of time is needed for insulin to remove glucose from the blood. Chromium enhances insulin performance and glucose utilization and helps carry proteins. Chromium works best if taken before meals.
Suggested Use for Chromium:
Adults: 1/2 to 1 teaspoon daily. May be added to fruit or vegetable juice.
Consult a health care practitioner for use with individuals under the age of 14.
Important Notes Concerning Chromium:
The suggested daily amount of Chromium is an absolute minimum intended to supplement a very well balanced diet. Should your diet be less than perfect, increasing your Chromium intake may be beneficial. Since ionic Chromium does not build up in the body, it never reaches toxic levels. Therefore feel free to find the amount that works best for you. Chromium may be taken either morning or night.
