Picolinic acid (PA) is an amino acid metabolite produced in the liver and kidney of man and other mammals. Detectable amounts are found in common foods such as cow’s milk and brewer’s yeast. A chelating agent, PA binds spontaneously to transition metals such as chromium, zinc, and iron, and plays a physiological role in trace mineral absorption. A recent study shows that supplementation with Chromium Picolinate increases the body’s efficient absorption of Chromium by as much as ten times.
