I spent the week working at a client on their process that creates the chromium additive for animal feeds. It is quite an interesting process, and I got to work on optimizing it. In the process I learned about how animals use chromium, and how it is used in animal and human supplements. Chromium helps the body process sugar, so it is used to help diabetics.

I take a capsule of cinnamon each day for diabetes type2. I will have to look into chromium.

Yes, please clarify, because for 19 years I was a welder/machinist and OSHA always warned us of the dangers of chromium! I worked with alot of stainless steel, inconel, monell, and others. Osha made us wear special pump/filter units to test for chromium and aluminum oxide levels.

This post is a little stale, but I will add that hexavalent chrome is the concern when welding and grinding materials containing chrome. Part of the inspection work I do at the refinery is ongoing inspection during weld overlay work inside of vessels. The overlay material generally has a high chrome content. We go over a lot of safety information prior to these jobs, welders who are working continuously in this environment are required to be in enclosed helmets with breathing air supplied from outside the vessel. Personnel such as myself who are in the area periodically can do so with a proper respirator. However, while arc gouging chrome material is in process inside a vessel generally only the welders with the sealed helmets are allowed inside. Iíll attach an OSHA link on hex-chrome.

Let me guess: We're talking about trivalent chrome, NOT hexavalent.

Yes, trivalent (GOOD), not bivalent (BAD), which I believe converts to hex (BAD).

Here is a technical description:

Chromium is important in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. It stimulates fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis, which are important for brain function and other body processes. Chromium also aids in insulin action and glucose metabolism

Sorry, I couldn't resist, the image of Chrome Plated intestines flashed through my mind. - P.S. , I used to work in a Plating Plant, and I know that the Chromium you're talking about is an entirely different material.
