Initial weightloss with Chromium Picolinate
I have 4 kilos to lose, but being 55yrs old, I need something to kick-start the loss (tried a gazillion times with no results). Would it be o.k. to start by using Chromium Picolinate or Polynicotate just for a couple of weeks, till I get going and get used to my new eating plan?

Dear Marion
Research has shown that chromium does assist weight loss if you take it at a dose of 200 micrograms/day (not more as this is the optimum dose). It has its best effect if taken for periods of 3 months or more.
Good luck
