Vanadium is a mineral element named after Vanadis, the Norse goddess of beauty because of its many colours. Vanadium is a light transition metal not a heavy metal and considered an ultratrace element, widely distributed in nature. Human deficiency has never been defined but vanadium has been studied for its ability to support weight management by influencing glucose metabolism.
Vanadium plays an important role in cellular growth and differentiation and may improve athletic performance. This element also has a significant role in cellular redox, which is the balance between the production of free radicals and their removal by antioxidant enzymes.
