Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Evans' crisply written study of chromium in the diet offers hope to those who suffer from high blood fat, high blood sugar, obesity, food cravings, and osteoporosis. The problem with chromium, a mineral essential to a healthy diet, lies in its absorption into the bloodstream--which is where the picolinate comes in. Picolinate is "an amino acid that . . . neutralizes chromium's electric charge, allowing the mineral to be absorbed by the body." Evans offers abundant evidence of the good effects of chromium picolinate, backed up with an impressive array of footnotes and references, not to mention a dandy glossary (the importance of a good glossary to a popular medical resource cannot be overstated) and a handy index. Although chromium deficiency may not threaten the world, it apparently can be effectively treated, and Evans helps readers do just that. Mike Tribby

I have used "Chromium Picolinate: Everything You Need to Know" to bring my own blood-sugar problems under control and to lose weight. I gave the book to my daughter who used it to lose weight and also lower severe hypertension. I am now sending the book to a nephew who has similar problems.

I cannot stress enough how revealing this book is. As a diabetic for over 20 years now, I never knew HOW important this mineral was. I was always told to take it, but I am the type of person who needs to understand WHY before I can commit to doing anything, so at best, I'd take it, off an on, but never regularly, and more regularly NOT take it for years at a time. I've lost 14 lbs in 8 weeks which I have never been able to do. My primary goal was to normalize my blood sugar levels, not lose weight. Furthermore, in these first 8 weeks, my depression "mood swings" have dramatically subsided. I didn't mean for this to be a testimony for taking Chromium, but I want to encourage all people to read this book. Like I said before, it is eye-opening and quite revealing. I particularly enjoyed the easy-to-read descriptive studies performed with Chromium and the findings that were discovered.

bought this book at a used-book store on a whim, read the whole thing that night, went out and bought chromium picolinate and am taking it.
it is good book for a diabetic to read also (I am one).
It is sensible and thorough, definitely worth reading and buying the stuff.
