Chromium Complex


  • Maintains normal blood sugar levels
  • Reduces feelings of tiredness and fatigue
  • Highest quality Chromium Picolinate
  • With added magnesium, zinc & vitamins


What is chromium?


Chromium plays an important role in regulating blood glucose levels and is often taken as a natural remedy for people with type II diabetes.  The minerals ability to regulate blood sugar levels may also help to prevent cravings for foods high in carbohydrates and sugars – which are often the result of blood sugar imbalances. As a result, some people find chromium supplements to be beneficial for weight loss.  


An exclusive combination


Our Chromium Complex provides high levels of chromium picolinate, alongside vitamin C, magnesium and zinc. Vitamin C and zinc strengthen the immune system and protect the body against the damage caused by ‘free-radical’ particles, while magnesium helps to reduce feelings of tiredness and fatigue. Chromium and magnesium supplements are sometimes taken to reduce food cravings.


GMP approved for quality assurance


This premium quality complex has been formulated to provide optimal levels of four essential vitamins and minerals, and is manufactured in the UK and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) approved.  Each tablet contains a concentrated daily dose of chromium picolinate in this convenient form.

    Keith Jones, Mobberley
    This supplement has helped me to keep control over my diabetes. Effects took a little longer then I thought they would to show, but as it is a supplement it can't always be immediate. Happy with effects. Thank you.

    Ms Alston, Flint
    I've always taken chromium just on its own, but for just a little extra cost you can get this one which has lots of extra vitamins and minerals that the body needs. Excellent value for money.

    Sugar Control 
    Sammie, Wilmslow
    Chromium complex has helped to control my blood sugar levels, which in turn has helped me to stop snacking and shed a few pounds. Never realised how much I used to snack on sweets to keep my energy levels and mood up, but now I replace them with a supplement that actually helps my body.

    Sugary drinks 
    Kirsty Evans , Bebington
    I'm guilty of drinking lots of sugary drinks every day and as a result I find it hard to stop gaining weight. I thought I'd give this chromium a try and so far it is working. I used to crave sugar all day, whereas now I mainly have my sugary drinks as a treat, great product.

    No sugar dips 
    Jonathan Parks, Cumbria
    My blood sugar levels often dip, which cause me to feel dizzy and a little lightheaded. I found that I was snacking on lots of sugary foods to prevent these dips, which meant I was also gaining weight. Taking this supplement has helped to balance my sugar levels and I have been able to cut down on the snacks, which is definitely helping my waistline.

    Blood sugar levels 
    Sandy McIntyre, Dumfries
    I think this product has been brilliant for me since I started taking it a few months back. I used to live a very unhealthy lifestyle and as I've got older I have gradually become more healthy with a bit of hard work along the way. Taking chromium has certainly helped me to do this!

    Helped curb my sweet tooth cravings! 
    Sadia Shakeel, Padstow
    I love all of your products I am using at the moment, but I love chromium picolinate because I have sugary teeth and I love sweet things. For that reason my weight was going up and I also have diabetes in my family so I was scared I might have this problem, but with the help of chromium tablets I controlled my habits. The other product is sea kelp to increase my energy levels.

    Less blood sugar swings 
    Toni-ann Hart, Reading
      I have been taking this for about six weeks and have noticed the severity of my blood sugar swings has lessened. I don't get the sudden dips where I feel ill and can go for longer without needing to snack. A lovely product and will be looking to place another order very soon.

    Q: My son who is 11 suffers from very low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) could he take these or is he not old enough thanks
    A: We would not recommend any child any the age of 16 to take our supplements unless they have been specifically recommended by your GP or Pharmacist.

    Q: I have recently started taking African Mango supplements for the belief that I had developed leptin resistance following a prolonged poor, high sugar diet as a result of stress and bereavement. I started this after trying many different diet attempts and exercises regimes and being unable to lose a pound.
    Following starting your African Mango I went on to read that some customers had had great success using your Chromium Compound alongside the AM. However I also was impressed with what I read about your Burnoff product and invested in that. My main problem has been bingeing on high sugar things at night. I recently started taking Spirulina also for general wellbeing.
    Would it be beneficial for me to start this alongside what I'm taking or unnecessary?
    A: We suggest taking Chromium Complex with African Mango. Combining these two should be sufficient enough to help combat hunger cravings and at the same time help balance blood sugar levels. It is important to remember that the speed at which supplements take effect can differ slightly from person to person, which means that some people can experience results quicker than others. We normally advise 4-6 weeks of daily supplementation for optimum benefits to be achieved, however, this period can be shorter.

    If I want to take these chromium tablets as an appetite suppressant, what time of day should I take them? 


    We recommend that you take 1 Chromium tablet with the main meal of the day. This should help to reduce the sugar 'spike' and 'crash' that often occurs after a meal. This 'crash' often triggers cravings for sugar and carbohydrate rich foods, which provide quick sources of energy.

    My husband is diabetic type 2 and he is on medication. If I start taking your chromium complex, can he stop taking diabetic medicine which his dr has prescribed for him and take this supplement instead? Will he still need any other medicine?


    Chromium supplements can help to promote healthy blood sugar level and many diabetics find them to beneficial. However, we do not advise that any one with diabetes takes chromium supplements instead of medication, without the consent of their GP.
