Chromium deficiency is a major factor in the development of heart disease (heart attacks, hardening of the arteries). Chromium is stored principally in the kidneys, spleen and testes, with trace amounts found in the heart, lungs, pancreas and brain. The body can not easily absorb chromium.
Some symptoms of a chromium deficiency:
Attention Deficit Disorder (A.D.D)
Aortic cholesterol plaque
Infertility, decreased sperm count
Coronary blood vessel disease
High blood cholesterol
Natural sources: corn oil, cloves, whole grain cereals, meat, and brewers yeast.
