Chromium picolinate for weight loss?

Have you heard about chromium picolinate? It’s the first time I heard it and I thought it is related to chrome coatings. I was surprised when I learned that it is used to lower cholesterol, promote weight loss, treat diabetes and help people who suffer from depression. But according to studies chromium picolinate has no benefit as a weight loss aid and the area where this supplement does seem to help is diabetes. Studies show that it does have an effect on insulin in the body, and may be effective in treating people with diabetes.

There is no reliable evidence supporting the claims that chromium builds muscle, aids in weight loss, lowers cholesterol or helps with depression. And since it can be dangerous and not that much is known factually about the supplement, it’s best to find other ways to lose weight.
