Helps Aid in Healthy Weight Maintenance
Vanadyl Sulfate, from Douglas Labs is a trace element compound that contains vanadium bound to sulfur. Each tablet provides 100% pure, crystalline vanadyl sulfate. Vanadium in its reduced form, vanadyl, constitutes 19.5% of this supplement.
Research suggests that vanadyl sulfate may have unique activity within a number of physiological systems including glucose management, lipid metabolism and bone metabolism. The mechanism by which vanadyl sulfate supports various metabolic pathways is not fully understood. The theory is that the vanadyl ion, which is found in nearly all tissues in the body and is the active form of vanadium within cells. Vanadate which is another vanadium ion that is found in body fluids, may be reduced by glutathione to the vanadyl form upon entering into a cell. Most studies investigating the effects of vanadyl have successfully used vanadyl sulfate in the oral form.
Vanadyl Sulfate may be given orally as a daily supplement as a source of the vanadyl ion for individuals who wish to supplement vanadium or who have a shown to have a need for the vanadium in its active form a dietary deficiency or impaired glucose metabolism.
