Chemical element represented by the symbol V and atomic number 23 is vanadium.Vanadium has a silver-gray color.Vanadium included into the soft metal.Vanadium occurs naturally in 65 different minerals and in fossil deposits.

Vanadium is extracted mostly from the dust of heavy oil, or as a byproduct of uranium mining.It is manufactured in China and Russia from steel smelter slag (products obtained from the smelting of ore o separate the metal fraction).Vanadium ions found in some organisms as a poison.Vanadium is micronutrients (nutrients needed by living things throughout their life in a small amount.) It’s important for humans and other mammals.
Who is the inventor of Vanadium?
In 1801, mineral experts from Mexico named Andres Manuel Del Rio find material that he called “brown lead”.He then changed the name of this compound as erythronium which means red and it was named so because of this element to turn red when heating.On the other side of the world, a Swedish chemist named Nils Gabriel Sefstrom isolate new material from iron ore which he named vanadium in honor of the goddess of beauty and fertility.In his study, he found that the vanadium produced many beautiful colored chemical compound.
In 1831, a geologist named George William Featherstonhaugh suggest that the vanadium should be renamed as “rionium” after Andres Manuel Del Rio.However, the proposal was rejected.In the end, vanadium name selected.Vanadium metal isolation from other ores were found to be difficult.In 1927, pure vanadium extraction by reacting vanadium pentoxide with calcium.Vanadium was first used on a large scale in the steel industry.It was used to make the chassis of the car model Ford T.

Where Sources Vanadium?
Estimates of the total resources of approximately 63 million tons of vanadium.Some rocks have deposits of vanadium as they trace elements and vanadium were also found as a byproduct of mining operations.Vanadium is also found in which deposits of iron oxide magnetite.Iron oxide is also very rich in the element vanadium.It is also found in bauxite (aluminum ore), high amounts of phosphate bearing mineral, and sandstones (with high uranium content).Vanadium is also found in carbon-rich deposits such as coal, oil shale, crude oil, and tar sands.This trace element is found in the human body.Vanadium is an essential element for ascidians, also known as sea spray.The concentration of vanadium is one million times higher than the concentration of vanadium in seawater.Vanadium is also present in various types of fungi and algae.Vanadium deficiency resulted in reduced growth and reproductive disorders.
What Vanadium Application?
Pure Vanadium is a soft metal.However, when alloys or combined with other metals such as iron, to be strong and hard.The unique properties of vanadium is used in making alloys (mostly steel alloys).These alloys are made into tools and construction materials.Vanadium alloy with iron produces carbon steel, high strength low alloy steel, tool steel and alloy steel full.Hard and strong alloy used in the coating of steel.This plating is used in military vehicles and other survivability products.It is also used to make car parts such as piston rods and crankshaft.Vanadium steel has the strength to support a large weight.Therefore, it is used as a frame or template for high-rise buildings.Vanadium pentoxide is essential in the production of glass and ceramics.It is also used as a chemical catalyst.Vanadium is also used to dye fabrics.
What are the health benefits of Vanadium?
Some studies in humans indicate that vanadium can lower blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity in patients with type 2 diabetes, however, the dose used in this study were well above the upper tolerable intake.Therefore, scientists are not sure if taking vanadium at those levels can be safe.Vanadium is also advertised as a sports supplement to improve performance but there is no sufficient evidence to prove that it works.In fact, a clinical trial examining the use of vanadium in athletes found no benefit at all and controversial.Vanaduim if necessary should be taken only when prescribed by a doctor.Usually 30-60mg of Vanadyl sulfate is a daily dose as a supplement.
What are the side effects of Vanadium?
Vanadium may increase the risk of bleeding when taken with drugs such as clopidogrel (Plavix), warfarin (Coumadin), heparin, aspirin and also when taken with medications for diabetes because of vanadium can lower blood sugar levels.People taking medications to lower blood sugar could also be at risk for developing low blood sugar or hypoglycemia.

Sleep became one requirement that must be met by humans.With sleep, then we will rest physically or mind already tired of working all day.Enough sleep is strongly recommended that the body back in shape to carry out activities in the future.
Sleep is usually done at night when a person has completed their tasks during the day.But not only in the evenings, we are also encouraged to sleep during the day for at least one hour.
However, not many people can do it because it is too dense bustle.Though there are tremendous benefits and unexpected from the habit of napping for an hour.What benefits are in question?Here’s more information.
Experts say that a nap for an hour will increase the brain’s memory and also the ability of human thinking.As said by US researchers examined the sleep patterns of nearly 3,000 Chinese adults aged 65 and older to determine whether the siesta has an effect on their mental health.
It turns nap most feared by men and women is not entirely true, because with a nap for 30 to 90 minutes after lunch will have an impact on the increased memory and thinking ability of human brain.
In the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society said almost 60% of people in the study took the time to take a nap with an average sleep time of their last 63 menit.Didalam The journal said that the students who took the time to nap has a point higher than in those who did not nap.
Tests conducted is about a simple question about the date, time, matter of years, and basic math.They were also asked to memorize the words and images of geometric patterns.In these tests it was found that those who napped brain memory levels are much higher than in those who did not nap.
In the subsequent tests retrieved the results to those who sleep sau hour value is higher than those who napped shorter or longer time than one hour.
People who do not nap or nap longer decreased mental ability as much as four to six times greater than those who napped for an hour.Napping also can ensure the elderly get a good night’s sleep.The study found that participants who reported less naps tend to sleep at night any less qualified.
For those of you who want to get a good night’s sleep kulaitas and also want to improve your brain memory, try to set a schedule for tidr during one hour at a time when the break.Because it will have a positive impact.For those of you who do not sempt nap smpatkanlah yourself to do things that are more positive so that what you do will make you happy and stimulate your brain to be more relaxed.
