Chromium has several interrelated benefits.

  1. Chromium is a component of Glucose Tolerance Factor, and aids in insulin utilization and blood sugar control. This explains its reputation for helping with hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), Syndrome X and diabetes.
  2. Because of its role in insulin utilization and blood sugar control, chromium supplementation seems to be very helpful in dealing with sugar and carbohydrate cravings. In fact we often here reports from customers of this product can often starting to help work within a few days. This aspect is particularly helpful for candida sufferers who are trying to give up sugar.
  3. Chromium supplementation may help control cholesterol. One study has shown chromium supplementation may lower blood LDL cholesterol ('bad' cholesterol) while mildly raising HDL (high-density lipoprotein), the good portion of cholesterol. This lowers the risk for coronary artery disease (heart disease). The same study also showed reduced insulin levels .[J Nutr Biochem, 1998;9: pp.471-475]
  4. Chromium may help with depression when its related to candida and sugar cravings. A new double-blind, placebo-controlled 8-week clinical trial in 113 patients diagnosed with atypical depression found that supplementation with chromium picolinate had significant anti-depressant effects in a patient sub-group with high levels of carbohydrate cravings. Patients with the highest level of carbohydrate cravings at baseline experienced the most significant clinical response to chromium supplementation. These findings built on results previously reported in a pilot study published in the Journal of Biological Psychiatry and conducted at the Duke University Medical Center Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.
    Reported in The Journal of Psychiatric Practice (2005; 11: 3 02 14)
    * Further information: on April 3rd 2011, we attended the keynote lecture with Patrick Hollford at the Natural and Organic Products show in Olympia, London. He said that he found his patients with depression seemed to benefit from around 600mcg's per day. Thats 4 drops per day.
  5. Chromium supplementation may also help with weight loss. Preliminary research in animals and humans suggested that chromium picolinate increases fat loss and promotes a gain in lean muscle tissue. So it’s good for those seeking to lose weight, and for people who are already working out in the gym trying to improve muscle tone. Double-blind research has also reported a reduction in body fat and body weight in people who took chromium supplements every day for three months.
