Effects of Chromium Picolinate on Food Intake

12:19 EDT 24th April 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to test the effects of chromium picolinate on food intake, food cravings, eating attitudes, and appetite. If chromium picolinate is found to have a beneficial impact on satiety and food intake, then this supplement may be an alternative or adjunctive treatment for overweight people desiring to modify their food intake. The primary hypothesis of this study is that among individuals who report being carbohydrate cravers, chromium picolinate supplementation will reduce food intake during a test lunch meal and produce greater satiety in comparison to a placebo.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Stable chromium atoms that have the same atomic number as the element chromium, but differ in atomic weight. Cr-50, 53, and 54 are stable chromium isotopes.

Unstable isotopes of chromium that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. Cr atoms with atomic weights of 46-49, 51, 55, and 56 are radioactive chromium isotopes.

Inorganic compounds that contain chromium as an integral part of the molecule.

A condition of having excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominal obesity is typically defined as waist circumferences of 40 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women. Abdominal obesity raises the risk of developing disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension and METABOLIC SYNDROME X.

A trace element that plays a role in glucose metabolism. It has the atomic symbol Cr, atomic number 24, and atomic weight 52. According to the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP85-002,1985), chromium and some of its compounds have been listed as known carcinogens.
