Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 25
Sex Both Genders
Age Range 7-12
Body Types Overweight
Notes for this study:
400mcg chromium given to overweight children who were also given exercise and diet plans (relative to diet and exercise paired with placebo) over the course of six weeks failed to reduce bodyweight relative to placebo (at the P level of 0.05) but the reduction in fat mass and increase in lean mass was greater with chromium than with placebo.

Insulin sensitivity was improved to a statistically significant degree, but no other health variable was beneficially influenced.
