Chromium Supplements

Chromium capsules, tablets and supplements work with insulin in the metabolism of sugar and are often prescribed by nutritional therapists to help control blood-sugar fluctuations and cravings.

Chromium is also vital in the synthesis of cholesterol, fats and proteins and is needed for energy. The weight control benefits of chromium are mainly due to lower insulin levels, less insulin resistance and increased fat burning afforded by lean muscle mass.

Signs of chromium deficiency: High cholesterol levels and blood-sugar fluctuations, anxiety, fatigue.
