The role of chromium in insulin resistance

Answered on August 19, 2014

I've been searching for, but could not find any research-based proofs on the role of chromium supplements and their effects on increasing insulin sensitivity in humans. Are there any? I know that there was some controversy as to the fact that chromium picolinate helps people with type 2 diabetes (impaired insulin sensitivity), but if the effects of this supplement is not well-researched and proved, why is it allowed to be sold freely? Maybe anyone was taking those chromium supplements and can share your own results ??? you are welcome! Thanks!

I've been supplementing with Chromium Polynicotinate. When I first started Paleo, I noticed it did help with any sugar cravings I had (not sure if placebo or not, but it's still an effect). Here is writeup on it with some links to studies.
