Effects Of Short-term Chromium Supplementation On Insulin Sensitivity And Body Composition In Overweight Children: Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Study
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
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.
