Solgar Vitamins Chromium Picolinate 500mcg works with insulin in the metabolism of sugar and is often prescribed by nutritional therapists to help control blood-sugar fluctuations in adult-onset (Type II) diabetes. Chromium is also vital in the synthesis of cholesterol, fats and proteins and is needed for energy. Supplemental chromium is best absorbed by the body when it is taken in a form called chromium picolinate.
Chromium Picolinate 500 mcg Vegetable Capsules contains chromium, a metallic element essential for metabolism, in picolinate form, which is an efficient chelator for minerals to be absorbed into the body. This Solgar mineral is provided in a chelated form. The word Chelated' is taken from the Greek to Claw' and means the mineral is presented in a form that improves the absorbability of the nutrient. This form delivers minerals with the highest absorption and utilisation rates because the chelate takes the minerals directly into the cells.
Chromium is a trace mineral which is required by the body for healthy functioning. This metal can naturally be found in brewer's yeast, meats, potatoes and whole grains. It can also be found in the soil and then ends up in the crops we eat and the water we drink. Minerals, just like vitamins, support your body to perform many different functions. Chromium plays a role in the metabolism, where it converts nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins and fats into energy. Furthermore is has an important role in balancing blood glucose levels.
