Vanadium is essential for healthy bones, teeth, and cartilage. When in the form of vanadyl sulfate it has been found to help maintain already normal blood sugar levels by decreasing insulin receptor resistance.
Both animal and human studies point to the potential of vanadyl sulfate for supporting already normal glucose metabolism. Vanadium also appears to increase deposition of glycogen (storage sugar) in the liver and inhibit the formation of new glucose from protein.
Vanadium can accumulate in bone, where it plays a role in building bone, thus having a positive impact on bone health.
Studies on vanadyl sulfate for supporting already normal glucose metabolism have relied on relatively high amounts. Other findings in these studies include support for cholesterol metabolism and lipid oxidation. The only side effect with higher amounts (150-300 mg) was some gastrointestinal intolerance. No oxidative stress or other signs of toxicity were noted in these short-term studies. Animal toxicity studies at higher amounts have observed no toxicity after one year.
