Notes for this study:
In older adults with evidence of memory decline, 1,000mcg chromium (as picolinate) daily for 12 weeks failed to influence glucose metabolism and did not influence depressive symptoms. Despite no influence on memory over the 12 weeks, there appeared to be significantly less inclusion errors during testing and increased activity in some regions of the right half of the brain during memory testing.
