Dosage

Current supplemental guidelines suggest up to 600mcg chromium per day. This dose would appear appropriate in cases of elevated blood lipids.

Many experts in the field of nutritional medicine currently suggest 400-600mcg chromium for glycaemic disorders such as impaired glucose tolerance.

Trivalent chromium, the form of Cr found in foods and nutrient supplements, is considered one of the least toxic nutrients. There have not been any reported toxic effects in any of the human studies involving supplemental Cr.

Potential applications

Weight control, Insulin resistance (Metabolic Syndrome), hypoglycaemia, peripheral neuropathy, atherosclerosis, elevated blood lipids, acne, weight loss,

 

Known contraindications

Chromium supplementation may enhance the effects of drugs for diabetes (e.g., insulin, blood sugarlowering agents) and possibly lead to hypoglycemia. Therefore, people with diabetes taking these medications should supplement with chromium only under the supervision of a doctor.

 

Interactions

Refined sugars, white flour products, and lack of exercise can deplete chromium levels. Calcium carbonate and antacids may reduce chromium absorption.

One study has demonstrated increased dream activity, greater vividness and colour in dreams, and diminished sleep requirements in those taking 50ug Cr daily, taken in the evening.

Limit saturated fats. Increase plant foods. Maintain 1.5 litres water daily. Avoid processed refined foods. Daily aerobic exercise. Resistance training 2-3 times weekly.

 

Note – The highly processed foods common in the Western diet, such as white sugar and white flour, are almost completely devoid of chromium, this may partly explain the widespread problem of glucose intolerance and glycaemic disorders.
