Nutrition 21: study finds chromium picolinate reduces hunger


PURCHASE, N.Y. A new clinical study finding chromium picolinate, the active ingredient in Nutrition 21’s Chromax, significantly reduced food intake, hunger levels and fat cravings in overweight adult women, the company announced Thursday.

According to Nutririon 21, this is the first study to examine whether chromium picolinate affects food intake in humans. Study participants who took chromium picolinate while significantly reducing their caloric intake did not report increased hunger levels. Conversely, those participants on placebo who did not reduce their caloric intake to as great an extent as the chromium picolinate users, reported increased hunger levels.

These study findings suggest that chromium picolinate may impact the brain activity involved in signaling and possibly sustaining satiety levels during dieting.
