Chromium Polynicotinate appears to help insulin bring sugar from the blood into the cells for energy. Low chromium levels can also increase levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, and increase the risk for heart disease.

    Heard about this on a talk show, doctor/nutritionist did not sell anything, talked about cutting out refined carbohydrates, and mentioned this chromium polynicotinate to be useful for people who suffer from hypothyroidism MANAGED BY PHYSICIAN, as it appears, he said, that even managed hypothyroidism includes some insulin resistance even when blood sugar is in normal range. It will NOT cause weight loss but CAN help the body regulate blood sugar. (Jim Bohannan show, December 7, 2011). I plan to discuss with my physician and may try it.
