Chromium picolinate is a supplement commonly used to enhance weight loss and improve blood sugar control. Chromium is an essential mineral that plays a key role in insulin signaling and glucose metabolism in the body. Picolinate is a chelating agent that helps to improve the absorption and utilization of chromium by the body.

In protein powders, chromium picolinate is often added to help with weight loss goals and improve athletic performance. However, excessive intake of chromium picolinate can lead to adverse health effects, such as skin irritation, gastrointestinal problems, and liver or kidney damage.

It is important to note that the recommended daily intake of chromium is between 20 to 35 micrograms per day for adults.
