Is chromium good for sugar cravings?
In recent years, chromium has become a common ingredient in products for those who want to lose weight and reduce their sugar cravings. The function of the chromium in the body is to be part of something called the Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF). GTF affects blood sugar levels in the body by affecting the tissues so that they can absorb carbohydrates (glucose) from the bloodstream. During this process, chromium interacts with blood sugar regulating peptide hormone in our body, contributing to the burning of fat and levelling of blood sugar levels.
In terms of chromium and sugar cravings, more scientific studies are required in order to establish that it helps with sugar cravings. What we do know is that chromium interacts with blood sugar regulating peptide hormone that helps the body affect blood sugar, and low blood sugar levels tend to increase sugar cravings in most people.
