Analysis has shown that unrefined carbohydrates, especially grains, are rich in Chromium and other essential life supporting minerals. The refining of carbohydrates gives them a longer shelf life, however, Chromium and other essential minerals are removed. Consequently, the human body does not have the elements it needs to effectively deal with these powerful energy sources. Eating such refined food leads to mineral deficiencies and an inability to catalyze those cellular enzymes which require the removed mineral elements.
Chromium works best if it is taken before meals to help support normal blood sugar. Even if sugar is not consumed, Chromium supplementation is important when eating refined or cooked foods. Chromium improves the uptake of glucose in the body's cells so that it can help to produce stable energy levels, thus potentially reversing the effects of excessive sugar cravings. All unburned or unused glucose will be stored as fat for future energy demands, thus the link between excess sugar and excess fat.
Food High in Chromium:
Brewer’s yeast, beef, liver, eggs, chicken, oysters, wheat germ, potatoes, black pepper, butter, and molasses.

Obtaining the needed minerals via the food we eat is a chronic problem today. This is primarily due to our deficient soils and over processing and over cooking of our foods. Drinking ultra-purified water can also strip our body of these essential minerals. It is important to be aware of the fact that reverse osmosis and distilled water will actually act in reverse of what nature intended our water to do. Instead of being a mineral delivery system, the minerals are taken out of the water and this puts additional stress on the body tissue to compensate for the lack of minerals in the water. The minerals must then be taken from our healthy reserves in bone and muscle, thus leaving our system deficient and vulnerable. Replacement is essential!

Haven't tested my chromium levels, but since it's a mineral that everybody needs, I've been taking it. Tastes mildly sweet to me.
It was recommended to me by Dr. Brian Clement from the Hippocrates Health Institute, West Palm Beach, FL.
I've been using Eidon minerals for years. It's a must if you have Reverse Osmosis filtration. I prefer the concentrated 2 oz bottles, but these bottles have a place, especially for getting kids to take it since the flavor is so much milder.
