Chromium Picolinate Doesn't Benefits Those Who Are at Risk of Developing Diabetes, Study Shows


October 8, 2009

Chromium picolinate is a very popular supplement used by diabetics for lowering their blood sugar levels.

A well-designed clinical study involving 63 non-diabetic over weight patients showed that taking 1,000 mcg of chromium didn't have any effect on glucose metabolism, body weight and cholesterol levels.

So the bottom line is that those people not suffering from diabetes won't get any benefits from taking chromium supplements.

Be careful here! This study does not tell you if chromium would help if you are suffering from diabetes.

Fortunately, there are many clinical studies showing that chromium can lower your blood sugar level in people with diabetes. You'll need to make sure that your dose is at least 400 mcg daily. Lower doses of chromium doesn't seem to be effective at all.
