CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF CHROMIUM SCIENTIFIC LITERATURE
- Chromium contributes to regulating blood sugar levels:
Chromium helps glucose enter cells by improving insulin sensitivity and contributes to maintaining normal blood sugar levels. Blood sugar levels refer to the amount of glucose in the blood. When the sugar level rises, such as during the postprandial period, blood sugar increases, leading to insulin secretion by the pancreas, a hypoglycemic hormone. Insulin allows cells in the body to capture glucose, reducing the amount of sugar in the blood and stabilizing blood sugar levels. Chromium acts as a cofactor for insulin by facilitating the binding of insulin to its receptor on the cell membrane. This amplifies the activity of insulin, promoting glucose entry into cells. Thus, chromium contributes to maintaining normal blood sugar levels by facilitating the use of glucose by cells. (1)
- Chromium helps prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes:
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease characterized by hyperglycemia. When there is insufficient or ineffective insulin, sugar accumulates in the blood, leading to excessively high blood sugar levels, known as hyperglycemia. In the absence of treatment, this hyperglycemia remains at an elevated level, defining diabetes. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body’s cells become resistant to insulin. In cases of overweight, the body gradually becomes insensitive to insulin and develops insulin resistance. Insulin becomes ineffective in transporting sugar into cells, increasing blood sugar levels, and unutilized sugar is stored in fat cells called adipocytes. This insulin resistance is often linked to or exacerbated by chromium deficiency.
Therefore, chromium is essential for maintaining normal blood levels and preventing type 2 diabetes. According to a 2015 study conducted by researchers from Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital, regular chromium intake significantly reduces the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes and obesity.

- Chromium regulates cholesterol levels:
Regular chromium intake helps regulate cholesterol levels. Excessive LDL cholesterol can accumulate in artery walls, forming plaques that can lead to cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes. Thus, maintaining a healthy blood cholesterol level is important. Chromium is believed to decrease LDL cholesterol, which deposits on arteries, while promoting the formation of HDL cholesterol, which is beneficial as it transports cholesterol from arteries to the liver for destruction.
A study conducted in the United States demonstrated the beneficial effects of regular chromium intake on cholesterol. Regular supplementation of chromium picolinate led to a significant decrease in total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels. Additionally, HDL cholesterol levels substantially increased during the treatment. These observations demonstrate the effectiveness of chromium picolinate in lowering blood lipids in humans and preventing heart diseases, heart attacks, and strokes. (3) Regular supplementation of our physiological correctors will help regulate your cholesterol levels and support your cardiac health.
- promotes weight loss:
Chromium can help reduce appetite and increase muscle mass, which can contribute to healthy weight loss. Chromium deficiency can lead to sudden and intense cravings for sugar. Taking our chromium supplements can reduce hunger and sugar cravings by acting as a natural appetite suppressant. Thus, chromium helps regulate appetite in the context of weight loss.
- Chromium reduces the risk of coronary artery diseases in patients with type 2 diabetes and improves their metabolic state:
If you have diabetes, it is necessary to consult your doctor before supplementing with chromium.
A study was conducted on type 2 diabetic patients with coronary artery disease. The patients were randomly divided into two groups, with one group taking 200 μg of chromium and the other taking a placebo for 12 weeks. The results showed that chromium supplementation significantly reduced body weight, body mass index, fasting blood sugar levels, insulin secretion, and insulin resistance. Furthermore, an increase in insulin sensitivity compared to the placebo was also observed. Additionally, chromium intake led to a significant reduction in C-reactive protein (a protein that increases during inflammation) and a significant increase in antioxidant capacity. Lastly, chromium significantly reduced blood pressure compared to the placebo. These findings suggest that chromium plays a role in regulating food intake, which may be mediated by a direct effect on the brain. (4)
