Vanadyl Sulfate supplements have been investigated as an aid controlling blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. Vanadyl sulfate, or vanadium, has also been shown to help aid in weight loss. Our Vanadium supplements are Made in America!
Benefits of Vanadyl Sulfate Supplements
Vanadyl Sulfate Helps Control Blood Sugar Levels
Vanadyl Sulfate supplements are the supplemental form of vanadium. Vanadium has been thought to be an ultra-trace mineral which means that it is needed by the human body in small amounts for superior health. Recently, Vanadyl Sulfate has been investigated as an aid controlling blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. This ability may allow some of those with diabetes, a natural method to help lower blood sugar, take less insulin, or in some instances stop taking insulin altogether.
Both animal and human studies have revealed that Vanadium can help reduce blood sugar and may potentially function in a comparable way to the hormone insulin. Vanadium is believed to increase the transport of glucose out of the bloodstream into cells, thereby reducing blood sugar levels. Vanadium is thought to assist in the transfer of sugar in the blood into muscles, similar to the function of insulin and is also understood to increase insulin sensitivity in the muscles. This is significant to Type 2 diabetics because one factor in the development of diabetes can be insulin resistance.
Body Building and Vanadyl Sulfate
Body builders and other athletes use vanadyl sulfate supplements to improve their performance and build muscle. Since vanadium plays a role in regulating the body's normal blood sugar levels, vanadyl sulfate can help the muscle cells uptake glucose instead of fat. So, by mimicking the functions of insulin, vanadyl sulfate forces more proteins, amino acids, and carbohydrates directly into muscles.
NOTE: Diabetics should consult their physician prior to taking Vanadyl sulfate. They should also monitor their blood sugar regularly when taking a vanadyl supplement because of the potential to lower blood sugar and decrease insulin needs.
