What is Inositol?

The Science

Inositol, a crucial component of cell membranes, may improve blood sugar control and prevent insulin resistance. It can also affect brain chemical messengers that impact mood, such as serotonin and dopamine. A lower-than-normal level of Inositol has proven to lead to depression, anxiety, and compulsive disorders.

Benefits

Inositol may also be associated with improvement in conditions like psoriasis, insulin resistance, cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure in postmenopausal women with metabolic syndrome.
