I am trying to find out what the half-life of chromium picolinate is. I have just found out it has helped damage my kidneys, since I have taken it in large doses for years . Since I just found out today, and I took my last of it today, just before that, I want to know how long before it will be completely out of my body. If anyone knows or can find out, I would appreciate it. I have looked on the internet for hours and not had any luck except for one place which I have a hard time believing. They said it was 345 days or something like that--nearly a year. That can't be right, can it?
