Vanadyl Sulfate, a trace mineral that is needed in small quantities by your body and a popular form of the trace mineral Vanadium, is used for treating prediabetes and diabetes, low blood sugar, high cholesterol, heart disease, tuberculosis, syphilis, a form of "tired blood" (anemia), and water retention (edema); for improving athletic performance in weight training; and for preventing cancer.
Reduces Cholesterol, Cholesterol production is decreased with vanadyl sulfate. Enzymes are blocked in the liver with use of oral supplementation of vanadyl sulfate, according to the “Handbook on the Toxicology of Metals.” Lowering of cholesterol in diabetic patients is beneficial with elevated glucose levels circulating in their blood. By reducing cholesterol and triglyceride levels, your risk of developing cardiovascular disease could be lowered by reducing fat buildup in your arteries that can lead to a heart attack or stroke.
Mimics Insulin Vanadyl sulfate helps to regulate blood sugar levels and possibly be an asset to people with blood sugar regulation problems, such as diabetes, PCOS and metabolic syndrome. Vanadyl sulfate mimics the action of insulin in the body by stimulating your cells to take in glucose faster. In the November 2010 "Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences," researchers reported on a study looking at vanadyl sulfate's impact on glucose levels in diabetic rats. The rats that were given vanadyl sulfate in their water had stable, functioning insulin-producing cells in their pancreas. This could possibly lead to improved glucose control by maintaining the number of functioning insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.
Fights Tuberculosis Mycobacteria, which causes tuberculosis, may be rendered ineffective by vanadyl sulfate.
