Chromium is an essential trace element, commonly used to help normalise blood sugar levels and manage appetite - especially appetite for carbohydrate or sweet foods. Chromium plays a key role in the Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF) - a process involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats to energy.
Nutra-Life’s Chromium Picolinate 400µg is a well absorbed form of chromium, and is especially beneficial when diets are high in refined carbohydrates (e.g. cakes, biscuits, fried foods, processed foods), as intake of these foods decrease chromium levels in the body.

Imbalances in blood sugar levels are very common - have you ever had the mid-afternoon energy slump which disappears after eating something sweet? This ‘craving’ is due to lower than normal levels of glucose in the blood which causes us to crave carbohydrates or sugar. This craving can often be accompanied by fatigue, mood swings, reduced energy and concentration levels.
Normal blood sugar levels can aid in management of appetite by controlling the ‘craving’ for carbohydrate or sweet foods. Chromium can also help to increase lean muscle tissue. Having greater lean muscle tissue means more fat can potentially be burned by the muscles.
