works best if it is taken before meals to help stabilize blood sugar.
Even if you don't consume much sugar, chromium is necessary because
the body treats most refined foods as simple glucose. If you don't
immediately burn this glucose for energy, you convert it into FAT!
In addition, chromium, which concentrates in the muscles, can help
to increase lean body mass and decrease body fat and weight. Chromium
improves the uptake of glucose in the body's cells so that it can
be metabolized to produce stable energy levels, thus helping to
reverse the effects of hypoglycemia.
