Grandma's Vanadium Guide
Not Easily Absorbed!

Vanadium is needed for cellular metabolism and for the formation of bones and teeth. It plays a role in growth and reproduction, and inhibits cholesterol synthesis.

A vanadium deficiency may be linked to:

  • cardiovascular disease
  • kidney disease
  • impaired reproductive ability
  • increased infant mortality

There may be an interaction between vanadium and chromium. If you take supplemental chromium and vanadium, take them at different times. Tobacco use decreases the uptake of vanadium.

Natural Food Sources of Vanadium

You can find this mineral naturally in:

  • dill
  • fish
  • olives
  • meat
  • radishes
  • snap beans
  • vegetable oils
  • whole grains

Of course as with any vitamin or mineral they are always absorbed better if you can enjoy a balanced diet. You can always find vitamin and mineral supplements but be careful and know exactly what is in your supplements and the dosage. That's why it's important to keep track of lists like Grandma's Vitamin List Guide.
