This forgotten mineral fights belly fat and combats carb cravings.

Combat Carb Cravings, Lose Belly Fat With This Forgotten Mineral

In All Health Watch, Diet and Nutrition, Featured Article, Weight Loss by INH Research0 Comments

A vast majority of Americans don’t get enough of a vital trace mineral that can help keep them slim. Ninety percent of us are low, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.1

The mineral can help you fight the urge to binge on carb-heavy foods. That’s because it helps balance your blood sugar. It’s so effective that doctors recommend it to diabetes patients.2

A Yale study found that diabetes patients were able to improve their insulin sensitivity by taking 600 mcg a day.

And researchers at the University of Vermont discovered the supplement helped people lose weight. Even better, it allowed them to get rid of belly fat, the number one enemy of many dieters.3

What is this overlooked mineral?

Chromium.

People who eat a high-sugar diet are more likely to be deficient in chromium. That’s because sugar depletes the mineral from your body. Elderly people and those who take part in extreme exercise are also at risk of deficiency.

To get the most out of a chromium supplement, it’s best to take it with a balanced diet of fresh fruits, leafy green vegetables, pasture-raised meats, and wild-caught fish.

A reasonable dose for a healthy person trying to lose weight is about 150 mcg per day. Chromium piccolinate is the form you want to take. It’s the easiest for the body to absorb.4
