"This supplement is extremely effective and my body being as temperamental as it is finds it easy to digest and use." ~product review by Chad

  • Terrific mineral supplementation for fitness and metabolic assistance

  • Patented mineral glycinate chelated form for optimum absorption

  • 200 mcg per serving

Chromium is America's favorite mineral supplement for fitness and metabolic support. This patented amino acid chelate from Albion ensures optimum absorption for superior results. With 200 mcg per serving, this formula provides 167% of your daily value. For more information on Albion products, see www.albionminerals.com.

What Makes Chelated Mineral Glycinates So Superior? First we need to understand the chelation process. Chelation is the result of minerals becoming chemically bound to amino acids in a very specific manner. Chelation occurs naturally during the digestive process to facilitate transport of minerals across the intestinal wall so that they may be utilized throughout the body. Amino acids are not the only "chelators" available, but they are ideal for minerals. The body is very efficient at absorbing individual amino acids, and Albion has identified the amino acid glycine as the preferred molecule for creating organic chelated minerals. Glycine is readily identified and absorbed across the intestinal wall, and Albion's glycinate chelates are actually small enough to transport right into the cells themselves!

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I like this product which has the necessary ingredients that I need. Works great. March 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Useful I like chromium and it is easy to take as the capsules are small. I have researched this mineral and I know it is important. I also like the chelated kind. It says to take it with water or food. I like to take it with water about 20 minutes before I eat. September 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by GLYCINATE vs PICOLINATE This is a very nice product. I notice the same positive results with it that I do with Swanson's Chromium Picolinate 200 mcg. capsules. However, I've used Chromium Picolinate for decades, so maybe it's just force of habit, and the fact that I'm used to it, and the fact that Swanson sells 200 of their 200 mcg. Chromium Picolinate capsules for $2.79. I don't know. Actually, this fine Albion Glycine Chelated Chromium is priced very well at just $3.89 for 180 capsules, so the price differential isn't a big thing. I have been happy trying and using this product. That being said, I just ordered a couple of more 200 capsule size bottles of Swanson's Chromium Picolinate 200 mcg. capsules. I take two of those capsules 4 times a day, so since I don't ever want to run out, I keep plenty on hand. You won't go wrong with this nice Swanson / Albion Chelated Chromium Glycinate product supplying 200 mcg. of elemental Chromium. I have no trouble recommending it. July 7, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by A valuable mineral supplement! This mineral product is offered in a generous amount (180 caps) and in a very convenient size containing 200 mcg per capsule. It is very easy to take throughout the day and has become one of my favorite products in the Swanson catalog. The Albion process seems to offer the best quality available to the nutritionally informed consumer. I have come to rely upon this mineral as part of a comprehensive regimen suited for overall good health in today's complex world. February 15, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Good Product I've used Chromium Polinate for years, now am using the Ultra Albion Chelated Chromium . I don't know if it's suppose to give you energy, but I feel great since I've been taking it daily. August 14, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chromium maintains normal blood sugar We have been using this chelated chromium for over 7 years. It is the single best supplement for this purpose! August 12, 2009
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just started taking Chromium is suppose to help with a few different things. I just started taking and its small and easy to take. Chelated is the best form to get it in also. I get bloodwork soon so I'll know soon if it helps me. July 29, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by I buy this albion-chelated form of chromium for easier body absorption. Everyone in our family takes chromium to help with insulin reduction and weight loss or maintenance and every time I try to cut back and cut this product out, I go right back to buying this product. My husband especially notices how tired he feels if he's not on this particular chromium.I like how tiny these pills are and how this comes packaged with 180 caps in the bottle with 200 mcg. July 23, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by ease and convenience I often complain about some of the larger pills I have to take but this is a small capsule, easy to take and just as effective as the larger pills. My Dr. is aware I take this and says if it helps me to continue it and it has helped me. October 6, 2007
