Chromium is key to reducing the risk of developing Dementia, Alzheimer’s diseases, anxiety, and depression (Chen et al., 2022)
Diabetes, heart disease and Dementia are now shown in this research to go together with depression and anxiety, all are conditions that manifest when there are low levels of Chromium in the blood.
In fact, Chen et al. (2022) claims that Chromium has an antidepressant potential as it improves glucose regulation, heart health, and mood!
This excellent 2022 review outlines beautifully the many functions of Chromium. It is detailed and organized.
Meanwhile, get your Chromium and to elevate mood and better manage cardiovascular condition.
Currently, there is no global consensus about the essentiality of dietary chromium. To provide evidence to this debate, an examination of blood chromium levels and common chronic health conditions was undertaken. Using a subsample from the 2015–2016 US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (n = 2894; 40 years+), chi-square and binary logistic regres- sion analyses were conducted to examine blood chromium levels (0.7–28.0 vs. <0.7 μg/L) and their associations with cardiovascular diseases (CVDs; self-report), diabetes mellitus (DM; glycohe- moglobin ≥5.7%), and depression (Patient Health Questionnaire-9 score ≥5), while controlling for socio-demographic (age/sex/income/education/relationship status) and health-related (red blood cell folate/medications/co-morbidities/body mass index (BMI)/substance use) factors. The sample was almost evenly distributed between men and women (n = 1391, 48.1% (men); n = 1503, 51.9% (women)). The prevalence estimates of low blood chromium levels tended to be higher among those with CVDs (47.4–47.6%) and DM (50.0–51.6%). Comparisons between those with low vs. normal blood chromium levels indicate men have increased odds of CVDs (adjusted odds ratio (aOR) = 1.86, 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.22–2.85, p < 0.001) and DM (aOR = 1.93, 95% CI: 1.32–2.83, p < 0.001) and lower odds of depression (aOR = 0.42, 95% CI: 0.22–0.77, p < 0.05). Dietary chromium may be important in the prevention and management of CVDs and DM for men. Continued exploration of chromium’s role in chronic diseases, including differences by biological factors, is needed. Article
