The authoritative Reference Daily Allowance (RDA) states that chromium is an essential nutrient involved in the normal metabolism of carbohydrates‚ fats and proteins. When not present in adequate amounts‚ dietary deficiencies of chromium may lead to improper glucose metabolism. This is significant because many complications with glucose metabolism are often the result of cellular resistance to insulin‚ which is often associated with chromium deficiency. Unfortunately‚ all chromium is not created equal.
Research has recently indicated that insulin absorption by muscle cells was enhanced more by chromium picolinate than the chloride form. With its extraordinary benefits on glucose‚ fat and protein metabolism‚ chromium has been reported to increase lean body mass and decrease body fat. The idea behind chromium and reducing body fat is that improper metabolism of carbohydrate‚ fats and proteins can lead to maintaining high blood glucose concentration which eventually signal the body to store calories as fat.
Current research also suggests that chromium supplementation may be beneficial to the cardiovascular system by balancing cholesterol levels. Other studies have indicated that chromium supplementation increases HDL (good) cholesterol‚ thus countering the effects of increased LDL and decreased HDL cholesterol‚ which in turn supports cardiovascular health.
1) Essential nutrient vital for normal metabolism of carbohydrates.
