Is chromium good for sweet tooth?
In recent years, chromium has become a common ingredient in products for those who want to lose weight. This is because it is believed that chromium can affect sweet tooth and snacking, which is often a reason why many people gain weight. Chromium's function in the body is to be part of something called the Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF). GTF affects the blood sugar levels in the body, by affecting the tissues so that they can absorb carbohydrates (glucose) from the blood. During this process, chromium interacts with blood sugar regulating peptide hormone in our body, contributing to burning and balancing blood sugar levels. Regarding chromium and sweet tooth, more scientific studies are still needed to establish that it helps with sweet tooth. What is known is that the interaction with blood sugar-regulating peptide hormone helps the body to influence blood sugar, and at low blood sugar levels, for the vast majority of us, this means that the desire for sweets increases.

For those who want to get chromium naturally, it is found in a large number of foods. Foods in which you can find chromium include whole grain products of various kinds, nuts, coffee, shellfish, e.g. mussels, tuna and eel, as well as legumes and meat.
