I consider Chromium to be one of the few absolute essentials to my nutritional supplement program. Just as you and I have read everywhere seemingly forever, I value Chromium to keep my blood sugar level within the normal, healthy range, which as you know, keeps my energy level up, facilitates the burning of carbs and bad fats, keeps my immune system strong, and contributes to my best health.
These are not my claims, nor are they medical claims. This is just the plain, simple nutritional information we see everywhere in print, online, and from Swanson Health Products.
Personally, with all the reading I've been doing these days, and also taking note that Swanson now sells Chromium Picolinate in 1,000 mcg. potency capsules, where I used to take 2 or 3 of these 200 mcg. capsules a day, I now have upped my dosage to 3 or 4 of these 200 mcg. capsules at least twice daily (morning and bedtime), and sometimes I'll take a few more with a B-100 Complex if I start to experience what I call "3 o'clock slump." When I do that, I snap out of it (the slump) in as little as 10 minutes or so.
Even though Chromium has been around as a nutritional supplement to help promote stable blood sugar levels for at least 5 decades that I'm aware of, it is clearly apparent that more is being learned about the many benefits of Chromium as a nutritional supplement all the time. Moreover, from what I have read and experienced myself, Chromium Picolinate is the preferred form.
More good news: All of this good is also really inexpensive from Swanson Health Products. This is the first time I have bought this small, 100 capsule size. Since I take a lot of these capsules daily, and also since Swanson Premium Chromium Picolinate is so inexpensive, I have always bought the larger bottle containing 200 capsules. I would buy a 500 size if Swanson made it available. This time I picked up this small, 100 capsule size just for convenience in a couple of ways.
Great product. Great price. Works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wdc50 Great price!
I have certainly noticed the difference compared to others for far more $$$. It will take at least 30 days to notice, and take as directed. Good value for product!

My husband and took this for quite a while but didn't notice any difference. Now that I've been off of it a while I haven't gained any weight back. Didn't help with my sweet tooth at all either. I tried it because it was so cheap so I don't really feel I lost anything..

I had been reading about how important Chromium Picolinate was to weight loss, so I ordered it. I deem it a valuable weapon in my weight loss arsenal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by autumngirl low price but effective
I don't take it regularly, but more than a year. I use it when my sweet tooth gets overactivated. This one effectively breaks the vicious circle!
