Question: How Should I Take Chromium Picolinate And Does It Speed Up Cancer Growth?

If I take chromium picolinate to curb my appetite how and when should I take it. I would probably want to take just one? I am not over weight, but could tone up some. I saw that this could speed up signs of cancer if you have any? I have a 200 mcg bottle, but it does not indicate when to take it?


Answer #1

The USDA recommends taking no greater daily dosage than 200mcg. Studies have produced mixed results regarding the cancer causing effects of Chromium Picolinate. While it seems relatively safe in these smaller doses, which have been shown to lower levels of sugar (for fat storage), insulin, and cholesterols, some weight-loss consumers have reported taking up to 1000mcg per day. At very high concentrations, the supplement has been known to break apart chromosome chains, which could lead to cancer.

Answer #2

I have a bottle of Chromium Picolinate 200 mcg, and it directs you to take one tablet daily, preferably with a meal.
