Are you looking for a way to maintain a healthy metabolism? Chromium picolinate is a nutrient that may help your body metabolize the carbohydrates you eat. The insulin in your body requires some chromium in order to utilize glucose. You may also need more chromium if you work out strenuously or are experiencing stress.
While it's definitely not a miracle remedy‚ a chromium picolinate supplement like Chromium (picolinate) 500 mcg may play a role in supporting a weight management plan that includes a balanced diet and regular exercise. By potentially reducing your cravings for carbohydrates‚ chromium may make it easier for you to stick to your lifestyle change.
Chromium (picolinate) 500 mcg by Pure Encapsulations provides this trace mineral‚ which is vital in small amounts and that your body is unable to produce by itself. Due to the human body's inability to produce chromium‚ you need to get it through dietary sources or supplements. This product binds chromium to picolinic acid‚ a substance that may facilitate the improved absorption of minerals by binding to them in the small intestine. Picolinic acid is normally secreted by the pancreas after being produced in the liver and kidneys‚ but you may need more for the most effectiveness.
Although chromium deficiency is rare‚ the increased use of refined flour in the modern Western diet can reduce the already small levels found in food. These capsules provide 500 micrograms of chromium picolinate to help you maintain healthy levels of lean body mass.
Take one or two capsules daily‚ in divided doses with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 60-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' Chromium (picolinate) 500 mcg should last for about one or two months.
