While you may have never heard of it, chromium is a necessary mineral. It does not naturally occur in the human body, but thankfully, we only need a very small amount of chromium. Craving Defender gives you all your body needs of this important mineral.
What is Chromium and why did we include it in our special blend to defend cravings?
Several important functions in the body require chromium. Normal metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates all require chromium. Chromium also contributes to balancing blood sugar levels which is key in losing and maintaining a healthy weight.
You will notice on the supplement facts that this supplement includes 100% daily allowance of Chromium (as Picolinate). Chromium picolinate is derived from chromium and picolinic acid, and it’s considered to be the most effective form of chromium supplementation. The picolinate part of the compound helps to enhance the body’s ability to absorb chromium.
Does chromium aid in weight loss?
Chromium picolinate will help stabilize your body’s blood sugar as well as help to reduce cravings for sugary and carb-heavy foods. It is also known as one of the most effective minerals for appetite control.
One reason behind the difficulty in losing weight is insulin resistance. Chromium impacts the metabolism of glucose in the body by improving or heightening the insulin’s function. The binding of chromium to the glucose transporters helps with the absorption of glucose into the cells. This regulates the secretion of insulin from the pancreas. Moreover, when there is an excess of glucose in the bloodstream, insulin performs another task. It instructs the body to store glucose molecules as fat. Thereby, resulting in weight gain. The less amount of insulin curbs the cravings for more carbohydrates, keeping a check on the weight.
Does chromium cut down on cravings?
Chromium picolinate works in the body in a number of ways and studies have shown chromium indeed curbs appetites, boosts satiety and reduces cravings. One study found that taking chromium picolinate can help aid weight loss over an 8 week period. Regularly taking chromium can help reduce body fat while also increasing lean body mass, leading to overall weight loss.
How does our body get chromium?
There are numerous nutrients like vitamins and minerals that are required by the human body but are not produced by it. One such nutrient is chromium which is required in trace amounts by the human body. This is where an outside source is necessary to fulfill a need. While some foods contain chromium, many people do get too little chromium in their diets.
