Common Uses

A biologically active, patent-protected source of chromium. High quality and high purity. Used for carbohydrate metabolism, stimulates the activity of enzymes involved in the metabolism of glucose for energy and the synthesis of fatty acids and cholesterol, it appears to increase the effectiveness of insulin and its ability to handle glucose, helping prevent hypoglycaemia or diabetes.

Even a slight deficiency will have serious effects in the body. People who are likely to be at risk of a deficiency of this mineral are the elderly, people who indulge in regular strenuous exercise - such as runners and women who are pregnant.

Pregnant women are particularly susceptible to a deficiency because the foetus uses so much chromium. Taking this may inhibit the formation of aortic plaques, and a deficiency may contribute to atherosclerosis. Helps regulate sugar levels in the blood, diabetic weight loss and nerve disorders may be helped with chromium.

Chromium picolinate may have muscle building effects when used while exercising regularly. Infants suffering from kwashiorkor (a disease caused by protein deficiency) have benefited from oral administration of chromium. Schizophrenics need extra niacin and have impaired glucose tolerance; therefore it is possible that they may greatly benefit from chromium supplementation, creating the formation of more GTF.

Suggested Dosage

As a dietary supplement chromium supplement, take one capsule daily. For best results, use as part of a low-fat diet and exercise program.

Health Information

Twinlab Chromic Fuel

Chromic Fuel Chromium Picolinate is a biologically active source of chromium and is of the highest quality and purity obtainable. Chromium is an essential mineral found in concentrations of 20 parts of chromium per 1 billion parts of blood. The body contains about 6 milligram of the mineral and the blood about 20 parts per million. It has functions in both animal and human nutrition. This mineral is now being recognized as important in carbohydrate metabolism.

Chromium Essential For GTF (Glucose Tolerance Factor) Production

Organic chromium is an active ingredient of a substance called GTF - glucose tolerance factor; niacin and amino acids complete the formula. Chromium stimulates the activity of enzymes involved in the metabolism of glucose for energy and the synthesis of fatty acids and cholesterol. It appears to increase the effectiveness of insulin and its ability to handle glucose, preventing hypoglycaemia (too much insulin) or diabetes (too little insulin) In the blood it competes with iron in the transport of protein.

The mineral may also be involved in the synthesis of protein through its binding action with RNA molecules.

Is Chromium Easy To Absorb?

Chromium is difficult to absorb. Only about 3% of dietary chromium from food is retained in the body. The mineral is stored primarily in the spleen, kidneys and testes; small amounts are also stored in the heart, pancreas, lungs and brain. The amount stored in the body decreases with age. There are no recommended dietary allowances for chromium, so normal intakes are used for guidelines. If amounts exceed the normal range, chromium's effect of insulin activity reverses and inhibits rather than helps.

Even a very slight deficiency will have serious effects on the body. People who are likely to be at risk of a deficiency of this mineral are the elderly, people who indulge in regular strenuous exercise - such as runners and women who are pregnant. Pregnant women are particularly susceptible to a deficiency because the foetus uses so much chromium. Taking this may inhibit the formation of aortic plaques, and a deficiency may contribute to atherosclerosis.
