Default Chromium Picolinate on Carb Load?


Just wondering your thoughts on the use of Chromium Picolinate on carb load days when someone is on the Ultimate Diet. It's supposed to improve insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism. I guess theoretically it would be helpful to use on carb load days for effective glycogen repletion and to put insulin to good use.

I've seen mixed reviews on it, what are your thoughts? Good, neutral, or bunk?

in the empirical observations I've made in others, chromium picolinate appears to help diabetics control blood sugar better. (and for diabetics, UD carb loads aren't a good idea to begin with)

With that said, in the healthy people I've seen using it, it hasn't appeared to do anything more than a placebo effect. YMMV
1. Ketosis doesn't matter.
2. Strength training+Protein+DHA/EPA+veggies+vitamins&minerals DOES.
3. Search BEFORE you ask questions.
4. Use google as well - Add "". Google can find those short strings of letters.
5. You are not a rodent so follow up with pubmed ( use "+human" "-rat" "-mouse" modifiers
6. Check the STICKY threads.
7. use google to find all my posts.
8. Supplement evidence
9. Private message are cheerfully ignored.
