Specific Information
Condition:
New / Regular

Description:


Inositol is considered a vitaminoid, a vitamin-like substance that was identified about 100 years ago in the urine of diabetics. Today it is classified as a complex of B vitamins. Inositol is a (hexavalent) alcohol and occurs both in plants (as phytic acid) and in animals (as myo-inositol). Inositol is present in practically all tissues of the human body. It is particularly highly concentrated in the brain, kidneys, liver, spleen and testicles. Animal experiments have shown that a lack of inositol can lead to growth disorders, hair loss and fatty liver.


 Inositol can be produced by the body itself from glucose and is therefore not considered essential. Inositol is mainly found in nuts, beans, wheat and wheat germ as well as in oranges. It occurs mainly in the form of phytates. If they are ingested in large quantities from food, they can reduce the absorption of calcium, iron and zinc. Inositol from dietary supplements does not have this effect and should therefore be used for therapeutic purposes.

1. Inositol is required for the good functioning of cell membranes. 
2. Inositol is very important for the transmission of nerve signals in the body.
3. Inositol also helps in the transport of fats and generally in fat metabolism.
4. Inositol probably also contributes to the maturation of sperm.
