Vanadyl Sulpate vs. Vanadium
The problem seems simple enough but I can’t find the answer. I’m working on re-tooling my pre and post workout nutrition (mainly to streamline it to reduce cost and pain in the ass factor) and found a really good-looking multi vitamin (Now’s Adam) that seems to have a decent reputation. I saw that it has 100mcg of Vanadium, which has some connection to Vanadyl Sulphate. My goal is to get 10 mg of Vanadyl Sulphate.
What I’m trying to figure out is:
- What exactly are the connections between these two (just for my own educational curiosity)?
- If I’m taking 100 mcg of Vanadium do I need to supplement with Vanadyl Sulphate to reach the desired 10 mg? If so, how much? (This is assuming that Vanadium is a compound of Vanadyl or vice-versa).
I have a history of blood sugar sensitivity that errs on the hypoglycemic side so I don’t want to overdo it. That said, I’ve been using vanadyl for over a year now with only good results that I can notice.
I’ll keep looking/researching on my own but so far an hour of googling has produced nothing more than a feeling of “yeah, there’s probably a connection but…”
