One of the most important aspects of muscle recovery after
intense exercise is proper replenishment with micronutrients.
"Micronutrients" is an umbrella term that includes vitamins and
trace minerals. Minerals are inorganic nutrients; that is,
nutrients that are not derived from living matter. Trace
minerals, such as vanadium, are minerals that are present in
foodstuffs at very low levels, and the human body requires them
for its proper function in minuscule amounts. Vanadium fits this
The role of vanadium in human health and
disease began in earnest only in the late 1970s. The interest in
vanadium was piqued in early 1980s when research showed that it
regulates sugar levels in the blood. In fact, in some studies,
vanadium was shown to lower sugar levels to well within the
It is known that disturbances in carbohydrate
metabolism are corrected by essential trace elements. When
people eat large amounts of carbohydrates, it can cause the
sugar levels in the blood to increase. The large amounts of
sugars are not cleared efficiently and promptly. That can
increase the amounts of sugar, and may cause insensitivity to
insulin. This can, and does, happen with advancing years as
well, when the sugar is not properly and efficiently
metabolized, which can cause a number of health problems.
Increased sugar levels in the blood can chemically change the
proteins in the blood so that they can not carry out their
functions. These modified proteins become "hot spots" for free
radicals. Therefore, it is necessary to keep sugar levels within
the healthy range. Vanadium mimics insulin. That is, it controls
the sugar levels in the blood.
By regulating the sugar
levels, the use of vanadium as a nutritional supplement not only
helps one win the battle of the bulge but also keep adult-onset
diabetes under control. Weight gain and age-related diabetes are
quite common in the aging population. Equally important,
vanadium supplementation also helps athletes to maintain the
levels of this essential trace mineral necessary for quick
muscle recovery after high intensity workout.
Nutrition's Vanadyl Sulfate is the nutritional supplement
manufactured with an eye on the unique needs of both power
athletes and the aging baby boomer to ensure good health.
