Chromium is a mineral found in certain foods. The body needs only trace amounts of chromium, and deficiency of this mineral in humans is rare.

According to the Natural Therapeutics guide, the recommended daily intake has not been established but the oral dose range is about 200-600 mcg/day.

Your dose needs may change if you have an injury, illness, or infection, if you are pregnant, if you are under stress, or if you exercise more than usual.
