Diabeties is the 6th leading cause of death in the USA: 72,449 died in 2009 Diabetes: From the procession of the disease leading to life ending complications.
Human studies suggest that vanadium reduce blood sugar levels and improve sensitivity to insulin in people with type 2 diabetes. In one study of people with type 2 diabetes, vanadium also lowered their total and LDL ("bad") cholesterol.
Dr. McNeill (1985) stated that “What we have in the body, I think, is an insulin-enhancing effect,”
Studies showed that vanadium normalized blood glucose levels in humans and animals with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. A recent study found that when people with diabetes were given vanadium, they developed increase sensitivity to insulin, resulting in decreased insulin requirements.
Katherine H. Thompson et. al, (2006) stated that vanadium has been studied over 100 years now, a vanadium-containing compound was assessed clinically for use in treatment of human diabetic patients. In 2000, the first Phase I clinical trial of a designed vanadium-based pharmaceutical agent, the results of the studies have been promising diabetes is a multidimensional disease, created by allopathic drugs such as Prednisone that induced diabetes, deficiencies in mineral, and enzyme, also have been shown to induce diabetes.
Anti-Cancer of Vanadium
Cancer took the lives of 559,888, in 2009 this is why researching the importance’s of minerals such as vanadium, to stop the number 2 killer of the US population.
Rajarshi Sankar Ray et. al., (2006) vanadium has chemopreventive properties and has been considered as an important pharmacological agent. In his study, they evaluated the apoptogenic role of vanadium on human breast cancer cell line. Exposure of breast cancer cells to vanadium led to the induction of apoptosis in a dose-dependent manner. Percentage of apoptosis was maximum (42.5%) at the highest non-toxic dose (250 μM). It was found that vanadium treatment brought about a prominent chromatin condensation, cell cycle arrest leading to apoptosis. These apoptosis based assays demonstrate that vanadium has the as an anti-cancer drug.
Heart disease is still the number one killer of Americans, with the millions of dollars spent on allopathic drugs each year; the mortality rate was 631,636, in 2009
The ability of vanadium compounds to activate these signaling events may be responsible for their ability to modulate cardiovascular functions. Coderre et, al., (2004), stated that vanadium have been shown to exhibit a large range of insulinomimetic effects in the cardiovascular system, including stimulation of glucose transporter translocation and glucose transport in adult heart muscles (cardiomyocytes). Furthermore, vanadium compounds improves cardiac performance and smooth muscle contractility, and modulates blood pressure in various models of hypertension and insulin resistance.
If you are being treated with any of the following medications, you should not use vanadium without first talking to your health care provider.
Anticoagulant or antiplatelet dugs (blood thinners) -- Vanadium may increase the risk of bleeding when taken with these drugs:
- Clopidogrel (Plavix)
- Warfarin (Coumadin)
