Chromium is a supplement that has been shown to lower hemoglobin A1C levels in people who have Type 2 Diabetes. The difference between chromium picolinate and chromium polynicotinate is that chromium picolinate is made of chromium and picolinic acid whereas chromium polynicotinate is made of chromium and niacin.

The relation between chromium picolinate and diabetes is that chromium picolinate is supposed to help control insulin. but it does not work effectively in everyone taking it.

It 's the same thing polynictinate is also known as GTF which just means Glucose Tolerance Factor .

It is ionic compound as the difference in the electronegativity between chromium and oxygen is more than 1.7

Stainless steel contains a minimal of 13% chromium and is much more corrosion resistant.

From Revolution health blog Posted on 05:03PM (EDT) on 2007-09-24 Chromium is an essential trace mineral required for normal sugar and fat metabolism and works primarily by potentiating the action of insulin. It is present in the entire body but with the highest concentrations in the liver, kidneys, spleen and bone.GTF (glucose tolerance factor) chromium was discovered when yeast extracts mixed with insulin were found to make insulin work better in the lowering of blood sugar levels. GTF Chromium supplements are biologically formed and organically bound (chelated) to live brewers yeast cells during the natural growth process of yeast. The chromium is assimilated by the yeast and thus formed in the same manner as the natural amounts of chromium which have always occurred naturally in brewers yeast.Is Chromium supplementation helpful for maintaining insulin levels for Diabetes Type II? A 2007 study, "Chromium treatment has no effect in patients with type 2 diabetes in a Western population" concluded, "Chromium treatment has been reported to improve glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes. However, concern exists about the possible toxic effects of chromium picolinate. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of chromium treatment in the form of chromium yeast on glycemic control in a Western population of patients with type 2 diabetes who were being treated with oral hypoglycemic agents. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: In this 6-month, double-blind study, patients with moderate glycemic control, being treated with oral hypoglycemic agents, were randomly assigned to receive either a placebo or treatment with 400 microg of chromium daily in the form of chromium yeast. The primary efficacy parameter was a change in A1C. Secondary end points were changes in lipid profile, BMI, blood pressure, body fat, and insulin resistance. RESULTS: No differences were found for the change in A1C between the intervention and placebo groups, nor were any differences found between the groups for the secondary end points. CONCLUSIONS: There is no evidence that chromium in the form of chromium yeast is effective in improving glycemic control in Western patients with type 2 diabetes who are taking oral hypoglycemic agents."

The difference lies in the chromium and magnesium content of the steel. Stainless has them, high carbon steel doesn't. All steel has carbon.

While stainless steel is an alloy of steel, the primary difference between stainless steel and other steels is that the stainless steels have a high percentage (about 10% or even more) of the element chromium in them.

Stainless steel is an alloy with at least 10.5 percent chromium. Zinc steel is coated with zinc.

Chromium (II) chloride = CrCl2Chromium (III) chloride = CrCl3 Chromium (IV) chloride = CrCl4

Chromium(III) borate has the chemical formula CrBO3.

That would be chromium(IV) selenide with the formula CrSe2

SS304 contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel. SS316 contains 16% chromium, 10% nickel and 2% molybdenum. The "moly" is added to help resist corrosion to chlorides (like sea water and de-icing salts) .

Stainless steel contains about 18% chromium taht forms a protective oxide layer at the top that prevents rust

stainless steel has chromium added to the steel, which forms a protective oxide layer at the surface, preventing corrosion (rust).

Stainless steel is steel (iron, carbon, and usually manganese) with the addition of at least 11% chromium. Aluminum is aluminum, period.

3 and 6 are possible valences of chromium ions (3----→3 electrons are lost, 6---- →6 electrons are lost).

Stainless Steel is an alloy of iron with at least 11-12% chromium. Galvanized steel is a steel with a layer of zinc deposited on the surface.

No chemical reaction, only alloys are possible.

Chromium exists in the crust at somewhere between 100 to 300 parts per million, about 20th on the list of abundant crustal elements.

Some groups have hosted studies for a relationship between chromium supplements and carbohydrates cravings. The premise is the less you crave, the less you will eat, and this translates into weight loss. The relationship is largely debated.

difference between as on and as at

Threeve is a mixture between three and five.

A steel is considered to be stainless if it contains 13% or more chromium. Mild steel on the other hand, has very little alloy content besides iron and carbon.
