Good quality for the price. Helps with blood sugar/hypoglycemia. Also, my heart used to flutter. Somebody at a health food store said this was from a lack of chromium. Since I started taking this, I haven't had any heart flutters.
Helps immensely for controlling my hypoglycemia!!

My doctor ordered I take this 2 times a day to control my insulin levels through the day after diagnosing my Hypoglycemia. Didn't notice how well it was working until I ran out! I have had horrible 'crashes' after not taking for a week. It has been about 3 weeks now and finally able to re-order! WHEW! It is due to arrive today and can hardly wait!!
It works but...

Too well. It's a good product but sends my blood sugar down to hypoglycemic levels if I take it every day. I would get super hungry right after I ate. Now I take it every other day and it is great and the price is definitely right!

Great quality. Gives me a nice boost. Helps my chronic fatigue. I take it with Jarrow Alpha Lipoic Acid following Stephen Cherniske's - The Metabolic Plan. It is nice and small capsule, and does its job well. Jarrow is a high quality brand. This product is fermented in Canada by Institut Rosell-Lallemand (on the label).

These tiny capsules do a great job! I used Chromium picolinate before, but it did nothing to get my blood glucose levels down. This one does. Within a week, I got my levels down - from 11.8 (fasting levels) to 8.2 in less than 2 weeks. It needs to go down further, but this is a great start. I use it together with Gymnema (I used Avesta, from iHerb).

Dr. Andrew Weil recommends up to 1000mg/day. It works more efficiently when I take this much. I have CFIDS, and I think my body's able to convert a little bit of fat stores into energy, at least. Seems to help with sugar craving/up-down blood sugar. Jarrow Formulas seems as good as they say!
Helps with sugar cravings

My sweetie takes this more often than I do. I tend to take it only when I am having a big pasta meal. Easy to swallow, helps with sugar cravings. Remember to always check with your own doctor to make sure that a supplement is right for you and won't interfere with other things you are taking, etc. Heal well! :)

I am using this as a replacement for a much more expensive brand and it works just a good.
Small but perfectly formed!

Chromium is an essential mineral that is necessary for the formation of Glucose Tolerance Factor. This is a compound that regulates the body's use of glucose and helps to balance blood sugar. Chromium may also influence fat and protein metabolism, facilitating their breakdown for use as energy. Chromium also features in the transportation of amino acids to the muscles, aiding in muscle growth and repair. I like these Jarrow Formulas a the capsules are very small and easy to take.
