Chromium plays a role in maintaining cardiovascular health. Chromium is stored predominantly in the kidneys, spleen and testes, with trace amounts found in the heart, lungs, pancreas and brain. The body cannot easily absorb chromium.
Chromium helps the body regulate metabolism, and helps maintain insulin and blood sugar levels that are already within the normal range. Chromium can affect body weight by stimulating enzymes that metabolize glucose for energy. It plays a vital role in the liver synthesis of fatty acids. Chromium supports insulin function and glucose utilization and helps carry proteins. Chromium works best if taken before meals. Refined sugar causes the body to use chromium more rapidly. Strenuous exercise can also affect chromium levels. More mature bodies are unable to store as much chromium as younger individuals. The refining of starches and carbohydrates rob food of chromium. Chromium supplements have been known to help with daily anxiety, occasional fatigue, and metabolism of amino acids that are critical to growth and life. Deficiencies may promote “glucose intolerance”.
Natural sources of chromium are corn oil, cloves, whole grain cereals, meat, and brewer’s yeast.
