there is no magic bullet, if you want to gain strength and get bigger you need to push weight.
Chromium is a mineral that helps insulin to uptake glucose into the cells of your body, particually muscle cells. there have been studies that suggest chromium will help to eliminate fat by preventing the storage of glucose in the form of triglycerates (fat)..
I will not hirt you but it won't help much eather.
Eat a good diet, insure you caloric intake is sufficient and Have Fun.
If you have any specific questions write me and i'll try and get back to you
