Chromium picolinate is a combination of chromium with picolinic acid, a natural chelator that promotes mineral absorption. Chromium's main function is to help insulin transport glucose from the blood into cells, for energy. It also plays a part in the metabolization of protein, fats and carbohydrates. Chromium may be used as part of your diet to help maintain a healthy blood sugar level already within normal range. It may also help promote a healthy appetite. While chromium is not normally well-absorbed by the body, chromium picolinate is a highly bioavailable, purified form.**
