Description : Chromium polynicotinate, which refers to niacin-bound chromium, is a nutritional supplement that is believed to be beneficial for individuals affected by diabetes or insulin resistance.
Supplemental minerals have a hard time passing through the intestinal wall, which means only a small amount is absorbed into your bloodstream. As a result, minerals are often combined with other substances that help escort them through the wall. Niacin boosts chromium’s absorption, and when the two are combined, they create a supplement called chromium nicotinate or chromium polynicotinate. In large, therapeutic doses, niacin can cause side effects, but chromium polynicotinate doesn’t contain much niacin. Many brands have such a small amount that they don’t even report niacin content on the label.
