What is Inositol?
Inositol is a water-soluble compound that is closely associated with the B vitamin group. It is a carbohydrate which has been found to have a sweetness taste half that of sucrose (sugar).
Why take Inositol?
Inositol has long been known for its effects on the metabolism of the human body, where it plays its part in the synthesis of secondary messengers within our body cells. It is an essential component of the phospholipids that make up cellular membranes and is found in virtually every cell in the body. It assists in the transmission of nerve signals, and helps to transport lipids within the body. In recent years has been studied extensively in relation to its role in insulin signalling. Supplementation has become popular and it is now widely recommended by practitioners, particularly for those with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

Food sources of Inositol
Foods containing the highest concentrations of myo-Inositol include fruits, beans, grains and nuts, however in grains this is in a non-available form called phytate. The more bioavailable form of Inositol comes from lecithin.
