Vanadium was first recognized as a trace mineral in 1971. It has been shown to inhibit cholesterol synthesis, helping lower the blood cholesterol. Vanadium helps with th proper regulation of the circulatory system.
It is a non-platinum metal and dietary micronutrient.
In 1971 vanadium was proven to be an essential trace mineral. Like most minerals in the wrong form,it is not easily absorbed in the intestinal tract.
Having minerals in an absorbable form like angstrom vanadium is crucial. Even after you get vanadium in the system, about 90 percent of vanadium
ingested is excreted through the kidneys.
What does Vanadium do?
Vanadium stimulates blood sugar (glucose) oxidation and beneficial for glucose tolerance
problems like hypoglycemia, diabetes, and hyperinsulinemia. Did you know that hypoglycemia
is a precursor to so many other diseases including diabetes? Many diseases can be stopped before they are serious if you knew you were
hypoglycemic. Available With Zinc And Chromium blend, See Angstrom VCZ
A lot of research has been devoted to diabetes mellitus that suggests that vanadium could be therapeutic due to
its activity on insulin secretion and insulin mimicking properties. "Vanadium appears to
function like insulin by altering cell membrane function for ion transport processes,
therefore vanadium has a very beneficial effect for humans with glucose tolerance problems." 65
Vanadium is also known for its anti-carcinogenic properties and is now being studied in depth by pharmaceutical companies for use as the base of many new drugs designed to fight cancer.
Other cancer minerals include Angstrom Geranium
One study conducted by Parker Hughes Institute on testicular cancer shows that the new vanadium based drug called vanadocenes has the ability to induce selective cytotoxicity and cell death of testicular germ cells. Dr. Osmond D'Cruz, director and lead author on the study said, "We are very excited about the potential of vanadocenes to target germ cells."
The body needs vanadium for proper regulation of the circulatory system. When vanadium is present in the body it prevents excessive cholesterol deposits in blood vessels. Build up of cholesterol in the central nervous system can be combated by vanadium.
