Supplement Spotlight: Chromium

Chromium is an essential trace mineral for optimal health and wellbeing!

Chromium is well-known for its ability to assist in the regulation of blood sugar, yet it also helps to break down fats and carbohydrates as well as promote insulin activity.

Brewer's yeast is the top food source of chromium. However, if you're looking for alternatives, here are some other great selections:

  • Eggs

  • Chicken

  • Beef

  • Broccoli

  • Wheat Germ

Adults typically acquire the necessary amount of chromium through their dietary intake (20-35 mcg/d). However, those with pre-existing blood sugar and insulin concerns may require higher amounts.

To reap the full benefits of chromium supplementation, it is recommended to take 200 mcg three times daily.

Supplementing with chromium can help you manage your blood sugar levels and even assist in weight loss. However, it's important to understand that chromium may interact with certain medications. Be sure to speak with a medical professional before adding any additional supplements into your routine!
