The chromium supplements included in the analysis were chromium chloride
, chromium picolinate, chromium nicotinate, chromium dinicocysteinate and chromium yeast.
A 2004 study evaluated the effect of 6-week oral administration of chromium chloride
(CC) on the glucose and lipid metabolism in streptozotocin (STZ) diabetic and neonatal-STZ (nSTZ) diabetic rats.
Sources of chromium employed for this study were chromium chloride
was procured from Hi-Media, Mumbai (India).
Chromium nanoparticle exhibits higher absorption efficiency than chromium picolinate and chromium chloride
in Caco2 cell monolayers.
Chromium is available in brewer's yeast (in a compound known as glucose tolerance factor) chromium picolinate and chromium chloride
, and in many multivitamins.
The team's best results occurred when it cooked the fructose mixtures at 80[degrees]C for about 3 hours and used chromium chloride
as a catalyst.
Four of the studies used chromium picolinate and two used chromium chloride
In the inorganic form such as chromium chloride
and chromium oxide, the chromium is poorly absorbed.
Absorption of chromium from chromium chloride
was found to be very low and not much different than baseline.
The resulting product is chromium chloride
, which is water soluble and thus dissolves out of the steel into the cooling water.
Some supplements contain carbohydrate fillers, which bind to chromium pilynicotinate and chromium chloride
, making them essentially inert.
