  Chromium Picolinate

Chromium Picolinate is a nutritional supplement being marketed heavily through health food stores, supplement suppliers, and weight loss fitness centers. The promoters' claims assert that the supplement will cause significant and long-term weight loss, increase metabolic rate, control appetite, reduce serum cholesterol, regulate blood sugar levels, increase energy and/or stamina, improve body composition by reducing body fat and building muscle, and treat and prevent diabetes.This popular nutritional supplement is a combination of the element chromium and picolinic acid. Chromium is a naturally-occurring mineral, trace amounts of which are found in everyday foods like meat, poultry, fish, and whole-grain breads.

How does Chromium Picolinate Work?
After eating, the human body secretes the hormone insulin. In general, the primary function of insulin is to transport glucose to the body's cells in order to provide energy that facilitates cell functioning. It is speculated that chromium picolinate works by stimulating the activity of insulin, thus significantly aiding the body's glucose and fat metabolism, managing the breakdown of glucose and fat. The exact mechanisms by which chromium improves this insulin efficiency are currently unclear; it has been suggested that chromium somehow works to increase sensitivity of insulin receptors. However, because research has yet to produce any definite answers as to the exact function of chromium picolinate, competing theories about its precise effects exist. Some claim that that the improved insulin efficiency causes an increase in the production of seratonin, which subsequently reduces appetite. Still others assert that chromium can regulate the fat-production processes in the body, preventing excess fat from forming. One hypothesis states that chromium picolinate increases protein synthesis, which in turn stimulates muscle growth. Heavy marketing of chromium picolinate as a dietary aid focuses on chromium picolinate's reputed ability to reduce the body's fat stores while conserving lean muscle mass .

Chromium Picolinate is a common ingredient in many herbal weight-loss concoctions readily available for over-the-counter sale at the local drugstore or on the internet. Chromium Picolinate is a nutritional supplement rather than a prescription drug. Chromium Picolinate is sometimes promoted as products that have the ability to even out levels of sugar in the blood while enhancing the body's fat burning metabolism.
