Hello everyone ! Have a wonderful and safe day 🙋🏻
Inositol is a pseudovitamin, more commonly referred to as vitamin B8. Unlike other vitamins, Inositol is not considered essential as the body can make it. The kidneys and other body parts can produce it. Inositol is mostly found in the brain. It is vital for the body because it is involved in several crucial processes of the body namely –
1. Insulin regulation and helps to maintain blood sugar. It can improve the insulin sensitivity of the insulin receptors and reduces insulin resistance.
2. Fat metabolism which prevents the fat from accumulation.
3. Neurotransmitter synthesis like Seratonin which is greatly affected by Inositol. Therefore, it affects our mood and behaviour.
4. Calcium signalling.
5. Epigenetic regulation.
6. Cytosketetal formation.
Because it plays an essential role in these processes, it helps to benefits and improve many chronic conditions like :
3.Panic attacks, Eating disorders, Mood disorders.
4.Polycystic ovarian syndrome
5.Infertility, regulate the Menstrual cycle.
8.Since it helps in insulin regulation and aids in metabolism, it helps improve diseases like Diabetes type 2, autoimmune diseases and cancers.

Supplement: Myo inositol. Supplements and doses are recommended under Physician supervision.
