What is Chromium?
Chromium is a micro-mineral that is silvery white in appearance, and as a nutrient it is considered to be essential for humans, meaning that a regular intake is required. It has a number of established roles in the body, and is understood to contribute to the normal metabolism of macronutrients and the maintenance of healthy blood glucose levels. There are several known food sources of chromium, but the levels found in foods are significantly affected by agricultural practices and manufacturing processes. The degree of absorption of dietary chromium is typically low, and supplements provide a reliable means of ensuring an adequate intake.
What are the benefits of a chromium supplement?
As a result of the part it plays in regulating blood sugar levels, chromium is thought to help reduce craving for sweet and sugary foods. In this capacity it can also assist in stabilising energy levels, supporting the avoidance of the feelings of lethargy that can follow the consumption of a sugary or high-carbohydrate food. Its role in macronutrient metabolism means it enables the body to more efficiently use the protein, carbohydrates and fats provided by the diet, which can be useful to be those interested in manipulating their body composition.
