I agree with all the stuff you have listed EXCEPT chromium. The internet is littered with studies from dot "org" and dot "edu" organizations that say chromium in the form we can take it orally, has no effect on weight loss or blood sugar. I must have reviewed 7 different university links that talked about this at length, all with the same conclusion; it doesn't work.
However, chromium can have MAJOR toxic side effects. Rememger, it is NOT a vitamin. It stores in the body, unlike vitamin C or B that are water soluable and flushed from the body on a daily basis. Therefore, even at what is considered to be a "safe" dose, it is possible over time to suffer chromium toxicity! http://www.dietitian.com/chromium.html
Me personally, I'd take any and everything on your list except for the chromium.

Here is an eye opening article by Dr. Stephen Bratman, publisher of the Natural Pharmacist. I have enclosed the lead in and a link to the page containing the article. This article is soooooo important when considering using one natural medicine alternative or another.
"I once took alternative medicine on faith. For decades, I practiced it on patients and myself and my family, and assumed that pretty much all of it worked. Then I learned about double-blind studies, and it was like a tornado blowing down a house of cards. I discovered that I, like most people who love alternative medicine, had made a huge (though understandable) mistake......."
