The so-called chromium-III compound is an important trace element in the body and is primarily needed for controlling blood sugar. In addition, the body needs chrome to regulate blood lipids (cholesterol). As a rule, humans do not absorb more than 30-40 μg per day through their diet. Thus, many people are at the lower limit with the amount of chromium absorbed, so it can very easily lead to a chromium deficiency. The more sugar we absorb, the more chromium our body needs to regulate the effects of sugar digestion. At the same time, stress, viral infections, pregnancy, exercise and aging increase the amount of chromium our body needs to function optimally. Therefore, a lack of chromium can cause excess weight or poor weight reduction: Most overweight people already suffer from insulin resistance. This is responsible for excess glucose (sugar) that stays in the blood. Parts of this glucose are converted into fat by the body, which in turn are incorporated into the fatty tissue. In addition, insulin regulates appetite and affects the gland responsible for appetite stimulation. A lack of chromium in the body affects the feeling of satiation, as no glucose can reach the cells.
