Chromium picolinate is a patented version of the trace mineral chromium. Studies show that this dietary supplement may provide benefits including weight loss, lowered serum cholesterol and glucose, burned fat, and build muscle. Picolinic acid is produced in the human body, apparently for the purpose of improving the cellular uptake of trace metal ions. Scientists have demonstrated that several minerals in the picolinate form are many times better assimilated than other forms of the same mineral.
Chromium polynicotinate is an equally effective assimilated form of chromium which some researchers suggest may have more benefits for certain conditions than does the picolinate form. A recent study on antidepressant pharmacotherapy for dysthymic disorder (depression) in 5 patients showed that chromium polynicotinate supplementation led to remission of dysthymic symptoms and concluded that "preliminary observations suggest that chromium may potentate antidepressant pharmacotherapy for dysthymic disorder." Another study on chromium polynicotinate in rats prevented the sucrose-induced elevation of systolic blood pressure and decreased measures of lipid peroxidation.
Both forms of chromium reduce high serum glucose levels which can contribute to aging via a destructive process known as glycosylation, also called nonenzymatic glycation, in which glucose molecules bind to proteins and interfere with their function. People with diabetes have a highly increased rate of protein glycosylation and this plays a major part in their increased risk of atherosclerosis and many other diseases. For many with diabetes, chromium enhances the ability of insulin to lower serum glucose levels.
Chromium picolinate is another form of chromium. Chromium is an essential trace mineral shown in studies to aid in building muscle, promote weight loss and work with insulin in assisting cells to take in glucose and release energy. Chromium is also thought to contribute to the suppression of food cravings. Picolinate is one of the easiest forms of Chromium for the body to uptake
