    When my diet and fitness guru put me on chromium he wanted me to take 5 a day but now I a down to 3.

    I take the GTF chromium and find it excellent.

    I am currently taking 500mcg of Chromium GTF every morning. I take a second 500mcg in the evening, only if I am having a very high carb dinner. I am debating buying 300mcg pills and splitting my dosage, for a combined dose of 600mcg a day.

    Default 400mcg a day here...

    I started off taking one 200mcg chromium picolinate pill a day, (as suggested on the pack) and after a few weeks upped it to two pills a day because I didn't feel as though one was enough - I still had afternoon sugar cravings. I have read that up to 1000mcg is safe, but I think I would be too scared to take that much; it is a heavy metal after all! Having said that, I really believe that it has helped with my freaky need for carbs!

    Suhani, if you are not diabetic or taking any insulin sensitising drugs like metformin, then you probably can take chromium. You should be able to get it from wherever you buy your other vitamins. There are two types - Chromium Picolinate and Chromium GTF, so check the box to see how much actual chromium you are getting per dose.... good luck!
