Chromium Picolinate

Chromium has often been used to aid in body composition improvements by way of improved insulin sensitivity and carbohydrate metabolism. Insulin sensitivity and carbohydrate metabolism improvements have only been seen in rats and the vast majority of human studies show no significant effects of chromium supplementation on body composition. Chromium probably isn’t your best bet for improving body composition.
