Front Cover

"Are you a dieter who can't lose the fat? A diabetic who would like to cut down on your medication? An athlete who wants to build muscle? Or just someone who would like to live a longer, healthier life? The secret lies in helping the hormone insulin, one of the body's master hormones, do a better job of regulating sugar and fat within your body. Cutting-edge research has discovered a nutrient that can help you do that. It is called chromium picolinate." "The mineral chromium helps insulin do its work more effectively and efficiently. But what little chromium exists in our diets is poorly absorbed by the body. Chromium needs the amino acid picolinate to help it get first into the bloodstream, and then into your body's 70 billion cells. Chromium Picolinate: Everything You Need to Know explains the important connection between chromium and picolinate, and how they combine to form a supplement that can enhance your health. It looks at the numerous studies performed around the world, on both animals and humans, that show chromium picolinate to be completely safe and wonderfully effective. Then, after detailing how chromium and insulin work together, the book reveals how chromium picolinate can be used to help you lose fat, control diabetes, build muscles, and slow the march of time. Author Dr. Gary Evans also explains how he and others discovered the connections between chromium and picolinate, and why it has taken the scientific community so long to accept chromium as an important nutrient." "Chromium Picolinate offers an approach to health that involves no undesirable side effects - just simple, safe, and natural nutrients that can help you look and feel better than you have in years."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
