This is very controversial advice

Have you actually seen a trivalent chromium supplement treat a severe case of ADD/ADHD effectively? Or do you have a case study you could show me?

I have never heard a link between glucose metabolism and ADD/ADHD. I'm intrigued by your claim, so if you know of any plausible mechanisms for this please share. It seems to me that if this claim had merit then other agents that control glucose metabolism could also have an effect on ADD.

I tried to research if trivalent chromium crosses the blood brain barrier to directly act on the CNS, but I didn't find anything helpful.

Also, there seems to be a debate about whether chromium is a true essential mineral (because they still haven't found a biomolecule that contains it) or a pharmaceutical agent.
