What Vanadium Does? Required (In Very Small Amounts) for:

  • Normal Body Growth,
  • Normal Bone Growth (Maintains Bone Density & Prevents Age Related Bone Loss),
  • Maintain Blood Sugar Levels – Sensitivity to Insulin – Fat Metabolism in our Body – Also has Positive effect on Total Cholesterol (Including LDL & VLDL),
  • Aids Enzymatic Actions in The Body &
  • Enhances Calcium Metabolism.

Reasons for Shortage of Vanadium: Bad Diet, Side-Effects of Medicines.

Vanadium Deficiency may lead to:

  • Cardiovascular Ailments,
  • Few Types of Cancers,
  • Increased Bad Cholesterol (LDL-VLDL-Triglycerides),
  • Positive effects in treatment of Tuberculosis, Syphilis, Anaemia, Edema…

Rich Source of Vanadium:

Plant Sources:           Mushrooms, Parsley (अजमोद), Barley, Whole Grains, kelp, Mushrooms, Seaweed (Kombu), Wheat Germ…

Herb Sources:            Black Pepper…

Fruit Sources:            Apples, Wine, Beer…

Animal Sources:        Shellfish, Eggs…

Daily Recommended Values:

Adults:                        Upto 1 – 1.5 mg/Day (This would be The Upper Tolerable Limit but Mostly DRV is Not Established). I would put the safe limit much-much below this as a typical Daily Diet would just provide around 20-50 mcg/Day.

Contra-Indications: Higher than Recommended Doses may be Toxic. Toxicity effects would include Abdominal Disorders, A Green Tongue, Nervous Disorders, Kidney Disorders. Supplements to be strictly avoided by Pregnant & Breast-Feeding Women (Anyway, as per me, all should completely avoid any synthetic supplements & go in for Natural Sources only). Avoid this if you are under any kind of medication.

My Research on Ancient (But Highly Intelligent & Advanced) Studies-Ayurveda & So Called Modern Studies (!!) has brought me literally back from Dead! Quit my sailing job in 2009 due Serious Medical Conditions (Severe Vision Loss, Severe Haemorrhoids, Severe Depression...), But few incidences (Rajiv Dixit CD's, Fatal Ailments Getting Cured at High End Ayurveda Ashrams, Khongress Leaders Going to Ayurveda Ashram!!!!!!!) Prompted me towards 'Dedicated & Devoted Studies of The Greatest (Ancient-Original) Medical Science-Ayurveda'.
