Chromium Picolinate

What is chromium picolinate? What’s it for and does it work? Thanks ahead of time!

Short answer…try Google…


But since I’m a nice guy…chromium is a mineral that is supposed to be an insulin mimicker, similar to vanadium. It’s supposed to help you reduce bodyfat and increase lean body mass. It was popular in the '80s and early '90s but real world results were disappointing.
