Chromium Picolinate is a patented version of the trace mineral chromium. Studies show that chromium picolate benefits include weight loss, lowered serum cholesterol and glucose, burned fat, and built muscle. Picolinic acid is produced in the human body, apparently for the purpose of improving the cellular uptake of trace metal ions. Scientists have demonstrated that several minerals in picolinate form are many times better assimilated than most other forms of the same minerals.
Chromium Picolonate also reduces high serum glucose levels which can contribute to aging via a destructive process known as glycosylation (also called nonenzymatic glycation), in which glucose molecules bind to proteins and interfere with their function. People with diabetes have a highly increased rate of protein glycosylation and this plays a major part in their increased risk of atherosclerosis and many other diseases. For many with diabetes, chromium may enhance the ability of insulin to lower serum glucose levels.
A double blind, crossover study showed an average of 7% cholesterol reduction in subjects taking chromium picolinate. Chromium can also produce anabolic effects similar to steroids, but without any of the side effects. Chromium not only increases strength and muscle mass, but was also shown to decrease body fat by 22% in one study.
