Chromium (and glutathione) is critical for proper insulin function and preventing diabetes and it can also decrease many of the symptoms of low blood sugar (super irritable when hungry and have to eat immediately). It can even be useful in treating some cases of depression, particularly when carbohydrate craving is a prominent symptom. A study of 113 people found that chromium supplements reduced depression-related cravings for sweets and starches, and provided an overall general improvement in depressive symptoms. Some physicians feel that it also helps cause weight loss.
