Chromium and Sports Nutrition
Chromium enhances insulin function, which transports glucose, amino acids and fatty acids into cells. It's said that athletes need more chromium than non-athletes, but whether chromium is really a performance enhancing, anabolic mineral is not approved. What is approved is that chromium helps glucose metabolism and lipid metabolism. Endurance athletes burn more energy than average athletes and that's why they need more chromium. Of course enhanced insulin function and fat metabolism is also a good thing in bodybuilding. But it is not approved that chromium is directly related to low body fat.
