Could anyone tell me if chromium picolinate is ok for a B nonnie? My Naturopath told me to take 200 mcg 2x/daily.  It is to raise my HDL. It is 34. I usually don't feel well taking any supplements.
Thank you

supposedly an avoid for all.

Quoted Text
Dr D:
Some supplements should be avoided, based on blood type, as an overdose can be just as toxic, if not more so, than a deficiency. Some examples are Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Zinc and Chromium Picolinate.

Thank you Lola.
I got the chromium picolinate and just had a feeling I should not take it so I just looked at it for several days but yesterday I took one and had kind of a funny feeling in my abdomen last night and it continued most of the day today but it finally wet away.  Don't know if it was caused by it or not but just had the feeling I shouldn't be taking it.  I won't take any more.  I will just stick with the BTD and hope the cholesterol thing rights itself.
Thanks again for the answer.

remember to practice the visualizing as well as breathing exercises to lower cortisol levels and thus cholesterol.

You might want to take a look at the Cardiovascular Health Support Protocols or even better get the Cardiovascular Disease book for more targeted blood type specific recommendations.

Chromium Picolinate is something I take daily almost like a diabetic takng insulin. It helps control blood sugar.  I think Dr. D doesn't advocate the picolinate,  not the chromium.
What type & brand of chromium does he recommend?
Thanks!

Have you thought about trying Glycosia, the new NAP prod for BS?

Brewer’s yeast is the dried, pulverized cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a type of fungus, and is a rich source of B-complex vitamins, protein (providing all essential amino acids), and minerals, including a biologically active form of chromium known as glucose tolerance factor (GTF). Brewer’s yeast is usually a by-product of the brewing industry and should not be confused with nutritional yeast or torula yeast, which are low in chromium.
...
It is by far the best source of chromium, both in terms of quantity and bio-availability.

... if it is not bitter, it is not likely to be real brewer’s yeast and therefore will not contain biologically active chromium. In addition, “primary grown” yeast (i.e., that grown specifically for harvest, as opposed to that recovered in the brewing process) may not contain GTF.
...
Because it contains a highly biologically active form of chromium, supplementation with brewer’s yeast could potentially enhance the effects of drugs for diabetes (e.g., insulin or other blood sugar-lowering agents) and possibly lead to hypoglycaemia. Therefore, people with diabetes taking these medications should supplement with chromium or brewer’s yeast only under the supervision of a doctor.
