Chromium: Research on Coronary Heart Disease, Blood Pressure, Weight Loss, and Diabetes.

I thought this abstract would be very helpful as it is so detailed about the use of chromium for weight loss, body fat, fasting glucose, insulin and insulin resistance. 

The research conducted by Farrakhan et al. (2019) is rather exciting, as other benefits showed up: lowered blood pressure, increase in antioxidant protection and more. So do take a look at the abstract, and enjoy the article. 


This investigation was conducted to determine the effects of chromium supplementation on metabolic status in diabetic patients with coronary heart disease (CHD). This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was performed in 64 diabetic patients with CHD between October 2017 and January 2018. Patients were randomly divided into two groups to obtain either 200 μg chromium (n = 32) or placebo (n = 32) for 12 weeks. Chromium supplementation significantly reduced body weight (− 0.9 ± 1.6 vs. + 0.1 ± 0.8 kg, P = 0.001), BMI (− 0.4 ± 0.7 vs. + 0.1 ± 0.3 kg/m2, P = 0.002), fasting glucose (β − 11.03 mg/dL; 95% CI, − 18.97, − 3.09; P = 0.007), insulin (β − 1.33 μIU/mL; 95% CI, − 1.90, − 0.76; P < 0.001), and insulin resistance (β − 0.44; 95% CI, − 0.62, − 0.25; P < 0.001) and significantly increased insulin sensitivity (β 0.007; 95% CI, 0.003, 0.01; P < 0.001) compared with the placebo. In addition, taking chromium led to a significant reduction in serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) (β − 0.49 mg/L; 95% CI, − 0.91, − 0.06; P = 0.02) and plasma malondialdehyde (MDA) levels (β − 0.22 μmol/L; 95% CI, − 0.35, − 0.10; P = 0.001); also, a significant rise in total antioxidant capacity (TAC) (β 84.54 mmol/L; 95% CI, 31.05, 138.02; P = 0.002) was observed in comparison with placebo. Additionally, chromium administration significantly reduced diastolic blood pressure (DBP) (β − 5.01 mmHg; 95% CI, − 9.04, − 0.97; P = 0.01) compared with the placebo. Overall, the 12-week supplementation of chromium to diabetic patients with CHD had beneficial impacts on weight, BMI, glycemic control, hs-CRP, TAC, MDA, and DBP. Article

My Research: Peace and a word on Metaphysics

Globe_Home 3Metaphysics, as we have learned, is beyond this changeable world, it is about things that do not change. Our intent in learning about metaphysics is to figure out what is not changeable within Kant’s Laws of Freedom- and as first causes, or universal truths that do not change. 

What if peace was enacted as an absolute international law? Unchangeable, must do, law? Is it possible?
