Vanadyl Sulfate Helps Regulate Blood Sugar Levels!
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 profile perfectly.
The role of vanadium in human health 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 normal range.
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 helps one win the battle of the bulge. Weight gain is 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.
Ultimate 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.
