    What's the ideal time to take Chromium Picolinate?


    Should I take it in the morning, before bed or after meal? I'm currently taking it after my meal...

    I have heard that too... I took it before meal today... I've heard to take it on empty stomach also because fibre in food can block it from the body... Take it multiple times a day was another I read... It's confusing...

    I would do 300mg Na-R-Ala , 20 mins later the chromium picollinate and then a meal 20 or so minutes later, all this on an empty stomach.

    Yeah, I would look into Slin Sane V2 as it will help with insulin and fat loss and has everything in one cap as opposed to trying to add in your own ingredients or guess on dosing.

    Fat loss & maintenance... I lose fat quite easily, so if better means stronger, I may not need anything else... If I find I do want better, what would you recommend?

    Add Slin Sane V2 to the chromium as others mentioned?

    SSV2 is a complete formula that already has the Na-R-Ala in it amongst other good stuff.

    Yellow gold, cheap and affective. (3 months for $30)

    Glycobol is pretty good, haven't tried much else.

    NeoVar is solid too, but some CP 20 min before a meal will suffice (200mcg)

    TrueNutrition has "Glucose Disposal Agent caps" with a nice concentration of cinnamon, gymenema sylvestra, r-lipoic acid, vanadyl, chromium, biotin.

    Also -- most people overlook this effect but Sustain Alpha Gel is great for regulating blood sugar levels and increasing nutrient partitioning via enhance blood flow. Trans-resveratrol is great for carbohydrate shuttling.

    HAHA,

    Yes I love TN's glucose disposal caps on my higher carb days....

    Also I use Sustain Alpha Gel for mood and erections,,,, but also get great vascularity and overall blood flow...I am now using it on the days I have super high carbohydrate intake too after researching more into trans-resveratrol and glucose control

    Very cool stuff -- I actually rubbed it directly on my forearms for our sustain alpha write-up in that forearm shot....

    Not at the moment but I have and will do so in the future. I'm partial to their muscle powder pre/intra/post. I haven't tried to many of their performance supplements. Mainly just bulk supp's, protein & carb blends.

    I always try to buy things in bulk to save money in the long term. Hell, it even goes for car insurance, when you pay a full year of coverage at a time you can save a couple hundred dollars depending on what you drive.

    Solo would probably give a better comparison to its GDA/pump effects, though I wouldn't be opposed to adding it in to see if there are any synergy

    Trans-resveratrol is shown to regulate glucose in liver and skeletal muscle --CONCLUSION: Supplemental resveratrol positively influences glucose metabolism pathways in the liver and skeletal muscle and leads to improved glucose control in a swine model of metabolic syndrome.
