My Favorite Chromium Supplement –

There are two main ways in which gluten contributes to chromium deficiency. The first is the effects gluten has on the gut of those with gluten sensitivity. In these cases, gluten is seen as a foreign invader. So your immune system attacks, which causes inflammation and cellular damage.

As a result, your digestive system doesn’t function properly. Digestion is hindered. Nutrients aren’t fully released from your food. And even if they are, they have trouble getting absorbed. Instead, nutrients like chromium are flushed out of your system. Plus, eating gluten often causes diarrhea, which further reduces nutrient absorption. Thus, nutrient deficiencies are common among those with gluten sensitivity.

The second potential way gluten contributes to chromium deficiency has to do with the type of foods that contain gluten. Most gluten-rich foods are highly processed. Packed with quickly digested starch from grains as well as sugar. And it’s these two ingredients that contribute to the development of insulin resistance when consumed regularly.

Plus, there’s evidence that sugar promotes the loss of chromium through urine. And processed foods don’t generally contain chromium.

Symptoms of chromium deficiency haven’t been well-defined. However, based on the fact that chromium helps regulate blood sugar, some possible symptoms and elevated risks include:

High blood sugar
High blood pressure
Insulin resistance
Type 2 diabetes
Heart disease
High cholesterol
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
