Natural vanadium-containing Mt. Fuji ground water improves hypo-activity of liver insulin receptor in Goto-Kakisaki rats


After daily treatments with Mt. Fuji ground water containing natural vanadium (approximately 65 μg/l) at doses of 0.53 μg/kg/day for 12 weeks, blood glucose (BG), serum hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) levels and insulin secretion from the pancreas of Goto-Kakisaki (GK) rats, a genetic model of Type 2 diabetes, were improved.
