Vanadium: A Natural Treatment for Diabetes?

By April 24, 2012

Follow me on:

In a number of laboratory studies, researchers have found that vanadium may help keep blood sugar in check--and possibly aid in diabetes control. But while vanadium is often touted as a natural treatment for diabetes, very few clinical trials have looked at whether taking vanadium supplements can help manage diabetes.

A trace metal found in some foods (including dill seeds and black pepper), vanadium is thought to play a role in certain biological functions (such as bone growth). However, scientists have yet to determine whether vanadium should be considered an essential nutrient.

Studies suggest that several other natural remedies (including ginseng and cinnamon) show promise for control of diabetes. In addition, there's some evidence that drinking black tea on a regular basis and maintaining optimal levels of vitamin D may be beneficial to people with diabetes.

Hi Cathy thanks for great notes on vanadium. I’m working on vanadium products (designed for people with DM and obesity) for last 4 years. So, if you like I can share some materials you might be interested in.
