Chromium Picolinate – the Wonder Drug?
If you were to hear someone say the words ‘Chromium Picolinate’ What would be your first thought? Most people would automatically assume it’s some bizarre chemical used in manufacturing industrial goods or something of that nature. Chromium Picolinate is actually a very useful tool for those interested in improvements in their metabolism and weight loss. In this video, Licensed Dietician Christine E. Marquette gives us an in-depth look into the many uses of Chromium Picolinate.
Chromium Picolinate has been a subject for debate for quite a long time now. This is due to the fact that even though there have been many studies done using the chemical, no one is sure whether it is beneficial for weight loss, or if it actually causes people to gain weight. Most of these tests are done with the idea that Chromium Picolinate increases the amount of Serotonin in your body. When there is a rise in your Serotonin levels, your appetite goes down, you have fewer cravings for sugar, and as a result, you take in fewer calories.
Another hypothesis was that Chromium Picolinate would actually help fat production. This would not be a bad thing, as it would cause the production of fat to become more efficient, and thus would lower the amount of fat created. This of course, would help promote weight loss.
All in all, no one is sure exactly how Chromium Picolinate can be used in weight loss. There are many theories so far, and a great deal of inconclusive studies, but for now we’ll just have to wait until study results can provide us answers we can count on.
