Vanadium is a trace metal found in our food and in our bodies, which is known to improve insulin sensitivity. A study conducted at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine is the first to document the benefits of vanadium in humans.
The researchers reduced fasting glucose levels by about 15%. They think that vanadium may turn on a signal at a crucial step in the cascade of insulin action, but they have no idea what else it may turn on in the process.
Warning: People with diabetes should not try to self-medicate with vanadium products available in health food stores because toxicities remain unknown. Side-effects are likely, and the formulations currently available are not comparable to those used in the study.
