    Your body needs chromium as part of the complex mechanisms that help your body use fats, carbohydrates, and protein. Chromium forms part of the natural compound glucose tolerance factor (GTF), which helps regulate how the hormone insulin maintains your blood sugar levels. The exact role of chromium in your metabolism and insulin production is still not fully understood, although researchers know it is necessary.
