What does the body need chromium for?
Chromium is an essential trace element and is important for the function of the hormone insulin. It is a component of the glucose tolerance factor, GTF for short, which in turn has a regulating influence on the effect of insulin in the body.
A permanent deficiency of chromium can lead to impaired glucose tolerance and promote type 2 diabetes mellitus. In addition, a long-term chromium deficiency can also have a negative effect on the fatty acid level in the blood and promote cardiovascular diseases.
