Regulates Blood Sugar

This chemical element helps to regulate blood sugar. It is necessary for the absorption of sugar into the blood stream and to help drive sugar, in the form of glucose, into the cells so that it can be used as fuel.

Deficiency can cause Fatigue

Lack of this chemical element results in the distorted function of insulin, the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. This can cause fluctuating energy levels and possibly relates to the cause of chronic fatigue.

Can cause Weight Problems, etc.

A chromium deficiency can cause many other problems as well, such as difficulty losing weight, high cholesterol, poor muscle tone, episodes of shakiness and cravings for sugars or starches.

Supplements May Help:

Diabetics and people with hypoglycemia may benefit from supplementation, on the recommendation of their doctor. Some studies have shown that moderate increases in chromium have helped a number of people lose weight.

Some of the best foods to add chromium to your diet are brewer's yeast, whole grain cereal, grapes, raisins, lentils, wheat germ, dried peas, potatoes, wheat bran, eggs, and shellfish (don't eat shellfish unless you know they are from unpolluted waters).

Food Sources

  • Brewer's Yeast
  • Whole Grain Cereal
  • Grapes
  • Raisins
  • Lentils
  • Wheat Germ
  • Dried Peas
  • Potatoes
  • Wheat Bran
  • Eggs
  • Shellfish (from unpolluted waters)
Eggs contain chromium

Little in Most Fruits and Vegetables

Most fruits and vegetables contain almost none of this chemical element.

Reduce Stress

Stress, physical and mental, causes a loss of chromium from the body. For example, athletes lose high levels of it in their urine, and may require supplementation.

Minimize Refined Foods

Diets high in refined foods (white flour, sugar, etc.) are likely to be  deficient.

Alcoholism or Weight Loss Diet?

Alcoholism and prolonged, strict weight loss diets may also cause deficiencies.

Helps Digestion

It is also involved in the digestion and metabolism of fats, sugars and proteins.

Not in Many Foods,
or in Processed Foods

It is not found in a wide variety of foods and unfortunately some of the best sources -- whole wheat, rye and barley -- lose up to 95% of the mineral when they are refined.
