Chromium Picolinate has been shown to be effective in normalising blood glucose levels and as a result may help aid weight loss and prevent overeating by decreasing appetite.
What is Chromium Picolinate and Why Do We Need It?
In basic terms, steady levels of sugar are needed by the body and Chromium has been found to help to maintain normal blood glucose concentrations.
Carbohydrates consumed are broken down into sugar and absorbed into the bloodstream. The scale at which the blood sugar (and as a result - insulin) rises, varies from food to food. Slowing down the release of sugar into the bloodstream is the first step to controlling blood sugar.
Research has shown that maintaining normal blood sugar levels helps promote weight loss and reduce appetite helping to prevent the likelihood of chronic diseases such as Type II Diabetes. In contrast, foods that are digested quickly and released into the blood stream just as rapidly promote overeating and insulin resistance.
This is why Nutrapure Chromium Picolinate Capsules contain the recommended level of 200mcg of the highest quality Chromium Picolinate to help maintain normal blood glucose concentrations.
Features & Benefits of Nutrapure Chromium Picolinate 200mcg:
- Helps Stabilise Blood Sugar Levels
- May Help Reduce Appetite
- May Help Prevent Overeating
- May Help Promote Weight Loss
Is Nutrapure Chromium Picolinate 200mcg Right For Me?
Chromium Picolinate may help reduce carbohydrate cravings. When blood sugar is low, people have a tendency to seek out sugars and starches to fulfil the craving, but this leads to overeating unhealthy foods and consuming too many calories in a day. By stabilising blood sugar levels with Chromium Picolinate, the need to seek out sugars & starches may be reduced, resulting in decreased appetite, less overeating, a healthier diet and therefore may help promote weight loss.
Chromium Picolinate in the Press
Health Article: Daily Mail – Could Chromium, Carnitine or HCA Help Lose Weight?
What is it?
Chromium is a trace mineral that works with the hormone insulin, helping the body regulate blood-sugar levels. It is found in cheese, nuts and wholegrains.
How does it work?
Chromium's main function is to help insulin carry sugar into muscle cells where it is stored as energy. A lack of chromium could cause fluctuating blood-sugar levels triggering sugar cravings.
Has it been proven?
One Austrian study found that a group of moderately overweight volunteers who took chromium in supplement form - chromium picolinate - lost almost twice as much weight as those on a placebo.
Brigid McKevith from the British Nutrition Foundation, says, 'Chromium is an important nutrient but the benefits for those trying to lose weight are too inconclusive.'
Where can I get it?
Chromium supplements are sold as chromium picolinate because picolinate helps the body to absorb chromium more effectively.
The Nutrapure Difference - What Makes Nutrapure Chromium Picolinate better than other Chromium Supplements?

NutraPure Capsules Vs Vitamin Tablets
Many of us take vitamins supplements daily to meet all the body's needs and to live a happy and healthy life. But which vitamins are better to buy? What is the best for our body? There is no point in taking supplements that are putting in more additives and preservatives than active ingredients. Usually tablet contains only 15% of vitamins and minerals. The rest of the tablet is colourings and preservatives - everything that is deposited in our body. This means taking such vitamins brings more harm than benefit.
