Inositol, sometimes referred to as vitamin B8, is a vitamin-like nutrient that the body needs in small amounts for normal cell function, growth, and development.
Inositol can be found in foods such as fruits, beans, grains and nuts, but our body can also produce small amounts of inositol from the carbohydrates we eat.
Inositol is most commonly used as a popular supplement for women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). However, research suggests that additional inositol as a supplement may have numerous other health benefits.
1.) Inositol plays a structural role as a major component of cell membranes. In other words, inositol helps to build and repair the cell membranes in our body.
.2) Inositol influences the action of insulin, a hormone to help control our blood sugar levels.
3.) Inositol also affects the chemical messengers in our brain, such as Serotonin and Dopamine.
As a supplement, we recommend the use of Inositol for:
1.) PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome)
Lots of studies have already proven the use of inositol in women suffering from PCOS. Used daily, inositol helps reduce the triglycerides level in the blood, improve insulin function, lower the blood pressure of women with PCOS.
Most importantly, it's proven to help promote ovulation in women with fertility issues from PCOS.
2.) Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome
Studies suggest that iInositol supplements may be beneficial for people with metabolic syndrome, e.g people with type-2 diabetes.
Insulin is a hormone made by our pancreas that acts like a key to let blood sugar into the cells in your body for use as energy. When you have type 2 diabetes, your cells don’t respond normally to insulin; this is called insulin resistance.
When your cells don't respond to insulin, sugar stays high in the blood and causes damage to other organs in the body.
Inositol helps by increasing the insulin sensitivity in our body.
