Chromium is essential for keeping blood sugar levels balanced. Blood sugar is a powerful regulator of your energy, mood, concentration and health. A deficiency of chromium can lead to many disturbances in your blood, including cholesterol, blood fats and sugar hormones (insulin and others). Your heart, your arteries and veins as well as your brain and your waistline all require optimal blood sugar balancing.
If your diet includes lots of sugar (even that hidden in packaged foods and drinks) your needs for chromium will increase. If you lead a hectic and stressful life and are unable to fit in adequate exercise, feel sleepy after food and crave sweet foods during the day your blood sugar balance will need support. Disorders of your blood sugar levels including hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar), pre-diabetic or diabetic states, raised blood cholesterol or fats, increase your requirements for chromium.
