Does anyone know if Dr. D has any other opinions on Chromium Picolinate since 1997?
I was searching and I couldn't find anything. NAP doesn't sell it. He said it's carcinogenic  
Also what about GTF Chromium..is that carcinogenic as well?

I don't know about GTF Chromium but in the GenoType book Dr. D recommends chromium polynicotinate for hunters. I don't know if it is okay for A's.

Thanks I'll check the Genotype Diet book.  I don't know if polynicotinate is the same as picolinate?

Gee, thanks Lloyd. If I knew it I wouldn't have asked. I did search and only picolinate and GTF were comming up. I didn't even see the other form listed.

Thanks Chloe, I found the other form just now when I actually typed in "polynicotinate" in Google on Live Strong too finally. I was searching chromium last night.  NAP doesn't even carry Chromium anything which is worrying me about it's safety. When I take it, it controls my appetite and my sugar cravings go down so it's useful...but not if I'm swallowing 'cancer pills'

I checked my bottle and the chromium is chloride form. There's another form?!! Ahhhh!
I suppose the chloride form doesn't absorb as easily.

Thank you Lola. It would have been helpful if he had added recommendations for the blood types.
I'll have to look it up when I get home.
I threw out the bottle of picolinate. I'm keeping the chloride for now. It really helps my sugar cravings.

Hi Mayflowers, in the GenoType book Dr. D recommends Supplements that help Teachers control bacterial overgrowth and help regulate the metabolism:

-Brewer’s yeast Typical daily dose: 1 tsp. for Type A Teacher but I don’t know if it is okay for      
Type A Warrior.

So, I look at the Nutrition Facts of The Brewer’s yeast from the Container for Serving Size: 2 tbsps. (30 g) It is contain Chromium 140%

-Thiamine(vitamin B1) Typical daily dose: 25-50 mg.
-Biotin (vitamin B7) Typical daily dose: 1-4 mg.
-Bifidobacteria probiotics. Typical daily dose: 1.5 billion CFU

Hi! Thanks for the reminder to check the GT book. There's nothing in there about chromium for A's but I do have brewer's yeast as a beneficial. I also got my Protein Powder for A's yesterday and made a nice smoothie using the brewers yeast and lecithin and berries.

Quoted Text
Five Key Nutrients For Healthy Blood Sugar Levels
In his clinical research, Dr. D'Adamo is not content to settle for trendy, common ingredients that are harmful to or not effective for one or more blood types. Glycoscia is the first blood sugar support formula Right for All Types. Dr. D'Adamo carefully selected three well-researched botanicals from the traditional texts of China, India, and Japan, and blended them with nature's foundational flavonoid Quercetin and the potent nutraceutical Resveratrol.

Resveratrol
Cardiovascular support from the active component of red wine
Resveratrol is found primarily in red wine and red grape skins. In a now-famous recent Harvard study, mice fed resveratrol were reported over time to be thinner and healthier with increased life-spans. Each capsule of Glycoscia supplies a full 50 mg of Resveratrol, providing 50% trans-resveratrol compounds.

Salacia Root
Supports natural carbohydrate metabolism
The herb Salacia Oblogna Root has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. Salacia plays an important role in supporting natural carbohydrate metabolism and in maintaining the homeostasis of lipid metabolism. The inhibition of these substances is thought to help the body maintain healthy blood glucose levels.

Quercetin
Nature's most important bioflavonoid 400 times more potent than vitamin E
Quercetin appears to have many beneficial effects on stomach health protection, immune system health maintenance, as well as the ability to calm occasional temporary inflammation following sports activity.

Red Sage Root
Antioxidant support for circulatory health
Used traditionally in Chinese medicine, recent research in the West confirms Salvia's importance for supporting cardiovascular health and liver function.

Maitake Mushroom
Adaptogen considered to be "The King of Mushrooms"
Research suggests that Maitake improves the lipid profile and appears to have blood sugar modulating effects. A 2002 study concluded that Maitake favorably influences glucose/insulin metabolism in insulin-resistant mice.
