Vanadium is involved in the construction of bones and teeth. It is probably also involved with depression and high cholesterol. Newer studies show that Vanadium has a possible insulin-similar function.
In sufficient quantities, one finds Vanadium in fish, but also in vegetable oils (sunflower oil, olive oil), We also find Vanadium in roughage-rich foods.
