The importance of chromium is its relationship to the pancreas and that it forms part of glucose tolerance factor (GTF) which is used to balance blood sugar. Chromium helps to balance blood sugar which in turn helps to normalise hunger and reduce cravings. Chromium also increases life span by helping protect DNA and RNA and is also essential for the proper functioning of the heart. Many people are deficient in chromium without knowing it which leads to many of the above mentions symptoms and plays a large part in those who have symptoms or have been diagnosed with diabetes. Correcting chromium imbalances can lead to a full recovery in many cases for those who have chromium deficiency symptoms.
