Like iron and zinc‚ chromium is a metal and essential trace element. Needed only in small quantities‚ it still plays an essential role in maintaining our health and wellness. Though the majority of people are getting enough chromium in their diets‚ there still exist certain instances where someone would have to have to take a chromium supplement. For example‚ those with diabetes‚ the elderly‚ and individuals with a poor diet‚ might need to take a chromium supplement like Progressive Labs' Chromium Picolinate.
Research has suggested that Chromium may be an essential component in how our bodies regulate blood glucose levels. Although the research is still continuing‚ the exact method through which chromium affects our blood sugar isn't understood; but there are proposed theories. One such theory is that chromium reacts with the LMWCr (low-molecular weight chromium) binding substance‚ intensifying the effects of insulin.
Low levels of chromium have also been possibly linked with higher cholesterol‚ which would negatively impact your cardiovascular health. Chromium has also been implicated in maintaining ocular health‚ but more studies are needed. Very recent studies have shed light on the possibility that a chromium supplement‚ like Progressive Labs'‚ could reduce our body's cravings for fat‚ which could then help individuals with weight management. Additionally‚ some researchers and manufactures suggest that chromium could be helpful in promoting muscle in combination with working out.
Foods that contain chromium are some meats‚ potatoes (more notably‚ the skin) whole grain products‚ some fresh fruits and vegetables‚ cheeses‚ spices‚ and more. Cooking meals in stainless steel cookware also imparts food in chromium. However‚ for those with poor diets or chromium inhibiting health conditions‚ Progressive Labs is proud to offer their chromium supplement‚ Chromium Picolinate.
