Chromium is an essential trace mineral that works with insulin to support healthy blood glucose levels and plays an important role in the proper utilization of protein, fat and carbohydrates. Chromium helps insulin to metabolize fat, turn protein into muscle and convert sugar into energy. Because chromium can boost the activity of insulin, it stands to reason that supplements might help some people with adult-onset (Type 2) diabetes control their blood sugar. Indeed, several studies have consistently found that 400 mcg to 1,000 mcg (1 milligram) of chromium picolinate each day can decrease fasting blood sugar levels, lower blood cholesterol, and improve other symptoms of diabetes. Chromium is a nutrient and not a drug, which means it can only help people who are not getting enough of the mineral in their diets.*
