Chromium

Chromium is a very important nutrient that might be of particular importance to diabetics. This is because this essential nutrient is very important for maintaining normal blood sugar levels. Men should make sure they get 35ug/day until the age of 51 when 30ug/day is sufficient. Women are advised to get 25ug/day until they are 51 when the number can go down to 20ug/day.

Meat is the best source of chromium, especially beef liver. Peas, beans, cheese, and whole grains are all good sources as well.
