Solgar Chromium Picolinate 500 ug Vegetable CapsulesProduct Type: Nutritional Supplement
Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans
Nutritional Supplement Features:
Chromium is involved in the metabolism of glucose and the synthesis of cholesterol, fats and protein. Chromium is essential to maintain stable blood sugar levels by helping insulin do its work, and so can be helpful for people with diabetes and hypoglycaemia (see caution in red, however). Chromium has also been used successfully to control blood cholesterol, and it promotes the loss of fat and increases lean muscle tissue. Studies have shown it may increase longevity and help prevent osteoporosis.
Chromium deficiency, which is extremely common, can lead to fatigue, glucose intolerance, Syndrome X (hyperinsulinism), poor protein metabolism and increased risk to coronary artery disease.
Excessive intake can lead to dermatitis, gastro-intestinal ulcers, and kidney and liver impairment.
Nutritional Supplement Recommended Dosage:
As a food supplement for adults, one (1) Chromium Picolinate 500ug vegetable capsule daily, preferably at mealtime, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
Chromium can reduce the need for insulin, and people with diabetes should therefore use it only under the supervision of a qualified medical doctor.
