Chromium is an essential mineral which supports a wide range of bodily processes and is found in small amounts in some foods such as beef and poultry, grains, some fruits, and dairy products. One of Chromium’s main functions in the body is to help support the metabolism of fat, protein, and sugar.
Double Wood’s Chromium is in the Picolinate form to allow for high absorption, making our Chromium Picolinate supplement highly bioavailable.
A 4 capsule daily dose of 2000 mcg per day is itself too high for most people unless they have a severe chromium deficiency, so for most people the recommended 2 capsule dosage will be plenty.
Side effects associated with high Chromium levels include skin irritation, dizziness, nausea, headaches, and mood swings. Extremely high doses have occasionally been linked to more serious side effects such as liver or kidney damage, so we strongly recommend dosing this product conservatively and it should not be used by those suffering from kidney or liver disease.
