Abstract: Chromium (III) is biologically active ingredient found in food and known to enhance the efficiency of insulin which in turn controls the blood sugar and depression in natural health. Chromium deficiency in humans is rare which contribute to the development of diabetes and metabolic syndrome and even mild deficiency can produce problems in blood sugar metabolism leading to other symptoms such as anxiety or fatigue. Adequate dietary chromium helps to maintain insulin sensitivity which can be obtained from different sources of food or commercially available supplements such as chromium picolinate and chromium polynicotinate. In the present paper, the preparation and characterization of products formed by the interaction of chromium(VI) as oxidant with asparagine and exploring their viability as chromium supplement is being reported.
