Bodycore Chromium Picolinate 60 caps
Bodycore Chromium Picolinate is an essential trace mineral that is necessary for life. Chromium is found in foods such as whole grains, brewer’s yeast, mushrooms, asparagus, cheese, and nuts. It maintains normal sugar, fat and protein metabolism.
An important function of Chromium is to facilitate the action of the hormone insulin. Insulin is needed to transport glucose (sugar), into amino acids, and fats into body cells from the blood. Your body can then use fat and sugars as fuel rather than store them
As Chromium enhances insulin sensitivity (insulin is regarded as an anabolic or "tissue-promoting" hormone), the tissue-promoting effect of insulin would enhance the transfer of amino acids into the muscle cell, stimulate protein synthesis, reduce muscle breakdown, and thereby enhance muscle mass. Increasing insulin sensitivity also may improve the use and storage of glucose.
Chromium can also help maintain muscle mass while dieting.

Take 1-3 capsules per day with a 250ml glass of water.
