What is Chromium Picolinate?
Chromium Picolinate is colloquially known as Chromium (Cr). Chromium is a mineral, classed as an essential trace element because very small amounts of Chromium are essential for human health. There are two forms of Chromium: trivalent chromium and hexavalent chromium, with the former being found in food and supplements. The element was named accordingly from the Greek word for colour, chroma, due to its blue-white metallic shade. Good food sources of Chromium include muscles, lean meats and broccoli.
Benefits of Chromium Picolinate
- Chromium contributes to the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels.
- The mineral also plays a role in normal macronutrient metabolism.
