Chromium picolinate is a highly utilizable form of chromium, promoting healthy glucose and lipid metabolism, as well as enzyme activation.* Optimal levels of chromium are essential for proper glucose and lipid metabolism.* One small study suggests that chromium picolinate may reduce the risk of insulin resistance, and therefore possibly may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. Chromium is sourced naturally from earthen ore, picolinate is synthetic. Hypoallergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.
