We know that many of our illnesses are associated with nutritional deficiencies. Here is some information on chromium.
..... chromium picolinate added to swine feed resulted in bigger, healthier litters with significantly less body fat.
....daily supplementation with 1,000 mcg of chromium as chromium picolinate significantly decreased blood sugar levels in insulin-treated diabetics with poorly controlled diabetes.
Keep in mind that 1000mcg = 1 mg. So keep that in mind. I am going to work up to 2000mcg myself and see if that helps. ;)
