Chromium is an essential trace mineral that helps in the breakdown of fats and carbohydrates. It also helps with fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis, but plays an even more critical role in relation to insulin and metabolic function. Chromium may also help with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
Chromium is found primarily in two forms, but only Trivalent (chromium 3+) is relevant in regard to human nutrition, being the biological form found in food. Chromium may have a beneficial relationship with biotin that has a synergistic effect on insulin sensitivity and glucose levels.
