Chromium is a trace mineral essential for insulin production and regulation, and for the proper metabolism of fats and glucose blood sugar . Analysis has shown that unrefined sugars and grains are rich in chromium and other essential life supporting minerals. The refining of raw sugars and grains gives them a longer shelf life, however, chromium and other essential minerals are removed. Consequently, the human body does not have the element it needs to effectively deal with these two powerful energy sources. Eating such refined foods can lead to many mineral deficiencies and an inability to deal with the body's demands for chromium and other minerals. Chromium regulates insulin production and utilization by the body. It reduces the body's level of triglycerides. Chromium is essential for weight regulation. Proper insulin regulation promotes the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that controls the appetite and curbs sugar cravings. Chromium works best if it is taken before meals to help stabilize blood sugar. Even if sugar is not consumed, chromium supplementation is essential because the body treats most refined foods as simple glucose. If glucose is not immediately burned for energy, it is converted into FAT In addition, chromium, which concentrates in the muscles, can help to increase lean body mass and decrease body fat and weight. Chromium improves the uptake of glucose in the body's cells so that it can be metabolized to produce stable energy levels, thus helping to reverse the effects of excessive sugar consumption. The conversion of unburned or unused glucose into triglycerides will be stored as fat for future energy demands. Chromium deficiencies have been shown to aggravate and/or contribute to fluctuating blood sugar levels, high cholesterol, slow metabolism and weight gain. Supplementation with chromium helps to support weight control, a healthy metabolism, and maintains normal blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
