What You Should Know
Bluebonnet Nutrition is a supplement company selling various products, including natural whey powders and specialty supplements. Among the specialty products are three weight management supplements – Diet Chrome-Care, Super Chrometene and Trimology Licorice Flavonoid Oil. Bluebonnet Nutrition does not sell the products online, but a list of authorized retailers is available from the official website.
List of Ingredients
Diet Chrome-Care: Super CitriMax® (1250 mg), L-carnitine (500 mg), chromium picolinate (200 mcg), choline (50 mg), inositol (50 mg), L-methionine (50 mg), vitamin B6 (25 mg), and the electrolytes potassium (50 mg) and magnesium (50 mg).
Super Chrometene: CarniPure® L-carnitine tartrate (1000 mg) and pure chromium picolinate from Nutrition 21.
Trimology Licorice Flavonoid Oil: licorice flavonoid oil (LFO) standardized for polyphenols (30%) with glabridin (3%).
Diet Chrome-Care supplies chromium picolinate, an ingredient proven to help relieve cravings and suppress appetite. Vitamin B6 is a natural energy booster, but it is not associated with weight loss or increased metabolism. The addition of potassium could mean one of the other ingredients causes a diuretic effect. Diuretics tend to lower potassium levels in the body and low potassium could be a life threatening problem. While none of the ingredients is a common diuretic, magnesium is known to have a laxative effect, which is similar to a diuretic effect.
Super Chrometene is another chromium picolinate supplement. We love the fact that Bluebonnet Nutrition wants to include a proven ingredient like chromium, but appetite suppression is only part of weight loss support. Supplements also need to boost metabolism, typically with green tea or caffeine, to positively affect weight loss.
Trimology Licorice Flavonoid Oil contains licorice flavonoid oil and glabridin. Glabridin is supposed to increase fat metabolism, but no clinical studies are listed to support this claim.
Products are sold through offline retailers in the United States, Europe and Asia. If the dieter is not located near a store, they may have to choose another product.

Bluebonnet Nutrition uses one main ingredient in two weight loss products. While chromium picolinate is a great ingredient for appetite suppression, it is not the only proven weight loss ingredient. Dieters need metabolism support as well as appetite control, so choosing a product with green tea and caffeine, in conjunction with chromium may be a better choice.
