What is Chromium Picolinate?

Chromium is a highly beneficial trace mineral which is found in a whole host of various foods and natural sources, and it has been proven to be extremely beneficial for a person’s general health and well-being. The mineral is essential, meaning that the body requires it, yet it cannot produce it naturally, so it has to come in dietary form. Despite the body requiring it, it only needs relatively small amounts, which is where chromium picolinate supplements prove so useful, as they provide the perfect dosages each and every single time. Chromium picolinate is when the chromium is combined with picolinic acid. Chromium deficiencies are extremely common, and they are caused in a number of ways, including stress, a poor diet, and the natural effects of growing older. As well as simply being able to treat and prevent chromium deficiencies however, chromium picolinate has also been found to help promote general health and well-being, as it provides numerous health and wellness benefits.

How does it work?

As this supplement provides so many health and wellness benefits, it actually functions in a number of different ways. To begin with, the picolinate plays a number of key roles in natural energy production, as it assists with the natural metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. Studies have revealed that chromium picolinate can actually help to alleviate the effects of insulin resistance, as well as a natural glucose intolerance as well. It does this by enhancing the signalling effects and actions of the hormone insulin, which in turn results in less natural glucose sugars being found within the bloodstream. Basically, it stimulates the actions and effects of insulin, allowing the body to more efficiently metabolize fats and glucose sugars. The supplement therefore, can assist with weight management, it can enhance energy levels, it can help to regulate blood glucose levels, and it can even help to prevent conditions such as diabetes.

What are the benefits of using Chromium Picolinate supplements?

Some of the primary benefits associated with chromium picolinate include:

More energy

One of the biggest benefits associated with using this supplement, is the fact that it has been found to naturally increase energy levels, as it plays such a key role in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. Providing you are getting the correct dosages of this supplement, you will quickly notice a natural increase in energy levels.

Regulates blood glucose levels

Another one of the primary benefits of this supplement, is the fact that it has been found to naturally regulate blood glucose levels. It does this by enhancing insulin effectiveness, which in turn forces more glucose energy into the cells, and out of the bloodstream. This is very beneficial from a health and wellness perspective, as it can help manage and prevent conditions such as type 2 diabetes.

Reduced bad cholesterol levels

LDL cholesterol is known as the bad cholesterol, as this is the cholesterol that is responsible for blocked arteries, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, heart attacks, and more besides. Well, experts have found that chromium picolinate supplements can naturally reduce LDL cholesterol levels and blood triglyceride levels. This is believed to be down to the fact that this form of chromium, thanks to the picolinic acid, is better absorbed than other forms of chromium.

Other benefits include:

  • Easily absorbed
  • More energy
  • Weight management
  • Stable blood sugar levels
