What is it?

Studies of the biological implications of chromium are still in their infancy, and how it works are still somewhat mysterious. However, scientists believe that it is involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins. In particular, they believe that it has an insulin sensitizing effect. There is therefore hope for the regulation of blood sugar, diabetes and especially type 2 diabetes.

Chromium is a mineral recognized by European authorities for its contribution to maintaining normal blood sugar levels .
The benefits of taking chromium go well beyond its involvement in blood sugar, but unfortunately, current legislation does not allow us to communicate on the health benefits of chromium . We invite you to carry out your research on the site of scientific references: Pubmed.
Today, to promote good assimilation of the trace element, it is the form of picolinate which is preferred‌. Indeed, picolinic acid is perfectly well recognized by the human body and therefore totally assimilated.

Daily needs

The European Food Safety Authority ( EFSA) has set a reference value of 40 µg for daily chromium requirements. However, it is possible that due to various factors such as poor eating habits, stress or taking medication, the additional needs are not covered by the diet. According to the WHO, we should consume a maximum of 250 μg of chromium per day. Finally, human studies have shown no adverse effects at doses of 1 mg of chromium picolinate over several months. This explains, in fact, that chromium-based food supplements contain up to 200µg of chromium.

No maximum dosage has been defined by the food safety.

However, chromium picolinate sold as a dietary supplement generally does not exceed the dose of 200 µg per capsule.

Chromium can be taken 5 minutes before the main meal.

Precaution for use

To date, no study has revealed any particular problem to chromium supplementation. However, as with all supplements, the substance should not be abused without taking medical advice.
There are currently no contraindications to taking a chromium-based dietary supplement.
However, people with a carbohydrate imbalance, and in particular people on insulin, should ask their doctor for advice before using such a supplement.

People who are continuing treatment against excess or cholesterol imbalance will also seek medical advice before using a food supplement containing chromium.
