    Tell me about Chromium Picolinate. I've read a few articles on google, and on bodybuilding.com, but I'd like to ask those of you who's used it personally. Im skinny and I am trying to gain weight/muscle. Is it something for me? I've read that it's a weight loss supplement, yet it is said that it also helps with muscle mass. I've also read that its a, “safe alternative to steroids,” is there any truth to this? Any long term/short term side effects? Thanks in advance.

    I'm diabetic and I've read that it helps with insulin sensitivity...I've taken it, but not really for muscle building...just general health. I never noticed anything different while using it.
