Why is chromium important? This trace mineral assists the insulin present in your body with regulating glucose levels. Therefore‚ it lets your body convert the starches‚ sugar‚ and fats you consume into the energy that allows you to be mentally and physically active in a daily basis.
The standard Western diet may leave many people with relatively low chromium levels. While this usually doesn't qualify as a true deficiency‚ older individuals‚ those who are stressed‚ and those who participate in strenuous exercise are most likely to lack sufficient amounts of it. Common dietary sources of chromium include whole grain cereals and breads‚ cheeses‚ lean meats‚ and brewer's yeast. On the other hand‚ most processed foods are very low in chromium; this is in addition to the fact that a diet high in simple sugars may cause you to eliminate more of it through the urine. Furthermore‚ the intestinal tract absorbs relatively little of the chromium you consume. As a result‚ a supplement like Pure Encapsulations' Chromium Picolinate 200 mg may be a more convenient solution for you.
Chromium picolinate is a form of the mineral that is highly bioavailable‚ making it easier for the human body to absorb and utilize. In addition to its support for the utilization of lipids and carbohydrates‚ it also activates enzymes that participate in needed bodily functions‚ like your metabolism. Finally‚ it may have a small positive effect on maintaining a healthy weight and building lean muscle mass when combined with regular aerobic activity‚ strength training‚ and a healthy diet.
Take one to three capsules daily‚ in divided doses with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 180-capsule bottle of Chromium Picolinate 200 mcg by Pure Encapsulations should last from two to six months.
