What is Chromium Picolinate?
Chromium Picolinate by Solgar is a complement based on chromium picolinate, a trace mineral with a high assimilation rate.
What are the properties of Chromium Picolinate?
With the optimal amount, chromium favors the stimulation of sugar metabolism, making it possible for insulin to balance blood glucose levels and improve glucose tolerance. Chromium also intervenes in the synthesis of proteins, and its consumption can promote muscular development and favor fat loss.
Chromium is also used to improve athletic performance and increase strength. After a muscle workout, we want to stimulate the secretion of insulin through fast sugars, so that it can fulfill its functions. These are, among others, taking glucose to the muscle cells and stimulating the synthesis of the proteins by giving way to amino acids. Without the presence of biologically active chromium, the insulin can not carry out this function.
By helping to normalize blood glucose levels, chromium prevents the carbohydrates from accumulating in the body as fats, as it encourages the uptake by muscle tissue of this glucose instead of by adipocytes. Chromium picolinate has the added benefit of being a great appetite regulator.
In addition, there are numerous studies showing that chromium reduces blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, which are often found in high levels in people with diabetes.
Who can benefit from taking Chromium Picolinate?
- People on a diet to lose fat
- People looking to reduce snacks by adjusting their meal times
- Sportsmen looking to improve glucose uptake into their carbohydrate load
