(Chromium, Cr, Cr3+, Cr6+, latin Chromium)

Chromium is an essential trace element. The average adult human body contains between 0.4 and 0.6 milligrams (mg) of chromium, while older people have a lower amount of microelements. The amount of chromium in the body depends on the environment in which one lives (and the latitude where he lives). Many studies show that the number of people suffering from diabetes and heart disease is lower in areas where it brings greater quantity in chrome.
