About Chromium Picolinate, 60 Veggie Caps - Thorne Research

Refined flour and refined sugar is significantly depleted of chromium. In addition, metabolic stress, strenuous exercise, and pregnancy can all increase chromium needs. Thorne’s Chromium Picolinate provides chromium that is bound to picolinic acid, which facilitates its absorption, so you get chromium’s full benefit.* Chromium in the form of picolinate has been widely studied for its support of blood sugar metabolism and insulin sensitivity.* Decreases in carbohydrate cravings have also been noted.* Other studies show chromium picolinate can increase lean-body mass in obese patients and enhance the effect of weight management efforts.*

Picolinic acid, a natural mineral chelator produced in the body, is made from the amino acid tryptophan in the liver and kidneys and is transported to the pancreas. During digestion, picolinic acid is secreted from the pancreas into the small intestine, where it binds to minerals and facilitates their absorption.*

Can Your Products be taken out their capsules to take the product?

Most Thorne products can be taken out of the two-piece, pull-apart capsules. However, there are a few products we don’t recommend taking out of the capsule, which would be indicated in the ‘Warnings’ section on this website for the applicable products.

Does Thorne test its products on animals?

No, and furthermore, Thorne supports the objective of eliminating the laboratory testing of all animals.

As soon before I feel the effects of my supplement?

Every individual is unique and every supplement has a different “mechanism of action” for how it works in the body. Some products can provide a relatively fast result, such as with PharmaGABA for alleviating stress, or Melatonin for promoting sleep. Other supplement products, such as a multi-vitamin/mineral product, are for preventive health and general wellbeing, so an immediate response would not be expected. However, for some products, if you experience an overall sense of wellbeings, such as increased energy or improved mood, and that is the indication of use for which you are taking the product, then you are realizing the intended benefit.

Can pain medication and antibiotics interfere with the absorption of the nutritional supplement? 

Thorne is not aware of anything in the current medical and technical literature that indicates that pain medications and antibiotics can interfere with the absorption of the nutrients in nutritional supplements; however, always consult with your health-care practitioner if you are concerned.
