Chromium helps your body to use fats, proteins, carbohydrates, and glucose for energy.  Together with the hormone insulin, it helps deliver glucose to your cells.  This is why chromium is often referred to as glucose tolerance factor (GTF).

Because of chromium's beneficial effect on insulin, it is believed to be helpful to people with hypoglycemia and those with Type II (adult onset) diabetes.  For both these groups, controlling blood sugar levels is important.  Chromium has also been shown to boost levels of the hormone DHEA, which has reputed longevity, anti-aging properties.

There is no Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for chromium.
A range of between 50 and 200 micrograms daily is suggested.

Chromium is available in many foods, but the general western diet leaves us woefully inadequately supplied.  It is estimated the 90% of us consume insufficient chromium, which may have serious consequences.

Symptoms of chromium deficiency include:

  • anxiety
  • fatigue
  • glucose intolerance (particularly in people with diabetes)
  • inadequate metabolism of amino acids
  • an increased risk of arteriosclerosis


We suggest a maximum of 200mg daily.


While most of us require additional chromium, it is advised that excessive intake of chromium may be toxic.
Diabetics should consult their physician before supplementing with chromium.
