Now Foods Inositol Powder is a dietary supplement which contains myo-inositol – an easily absorbable and biologically active form of inositol. The compound belongs to B vitamins (as vitamin B8) and is vital particularly to the nervous system. What is more, it is critical to proper insulin response, lipid metabolism and maintaining normal hormonal balance.

The formula is recommended for regulating the activity of the endocrine system and improving the nervous system system function. It is a valuable cognitive support, stabilises your mood, relieves anxiety and fights panic attacks. Numerous studies have proven the efficacy of inositol in treating obsessive-compulsive disorder (bulimia, compulsive overeating).

The supplementation should interest also women with hormonal imbalances – in particular polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) accompanied frequently by problems with fertility and lowered insulin sensitivity.

Inositol was initially classified as a B vitamin (namely B8). In the course of studies, it has been proven that all B vitamins are nitrogen compounds whereas inositol does not contain this element. In addition, the human body has the ability to synthesise itself small amounts of inositol, that is why it is called a pseudovitamin.

Structurally, inositol is an isomer of glucose found in every eukaryotic cell. It is a crucial building block of cell membranes, responsible for signal transduction and used by the main neurotransmitter systems in the body. The significance of inositol for proper body functions is enormous. It has been shown that its increased levels in some cases can bring many health benefits.

The regulation of endocrine system function
Inositol acts a major precursor for the synthesis of second hormone messengers. As a result, it contributes to maintaining balance of the male and female endocrine system. It boosts fertility – it stimulates spermatogenesis in men and restores regular menstrual and ovulation cycles.

An increase in inositol body levels can bring many benefits for women diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). It is a complex endocrine disorder associated with hormonal imbalance which causes in turn negative changes in appearance (excessive body hair, acne, obesity) and increases the risk of infertility and type 2 diabetes. Inositol helps restore proper balance between estrogens and androgens, inhibits abnormal endometrial hyperplasia, prevents hirsutism and reduces acne.

By regulating hormonal activity, inositol relieves severe symptoms of PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder) and PMS (premenstrual syndrome). After a half year of studies, it has been shown that it was possible in women taking 12 g of inositol daily to restore normal menstrual and ovulation cycles, alleviate pain in the lumbar spine and lower abdomen as well as stop heavy bleedings. There was also an improvement of mental well-being of the examined – a reduction in the rate of crying and depressive episodes.

Improved insulin sensitivity
Carbohydrate imbalance resulting from the resistance of body tissues to insulin is one of the main causes of obesity, correlated with PCOS and hormonal imbalance. Increased insulin concentration is also harmful to men – insulin interacts with the enzyme aromatase which is responsible for the conversion of testosterone into estrogen. This can lead consequently to gynecomastia and fat deposition in the abdominal area.

Inositol limits excessive insulin production and increases the sensitivity of receptors in peripheral tissue to insulin activity. As a result, it helps to decrease naturally blood glucose concentration and facilitates its accumulation in the liver and muscles. It reduces the incidence of type 2 diabetes and prevents obesity.

Strengthened cognitive functions
Inositol is a crucial constituent of signalling molecules which are involved in cellular response to external stimuli. Along with choline, it is the most important part of cell membrane structure, enhances the flow of nerve impulses and improves synaptic transmission between neurons. Inositol influences mental performance, concentration, alertness and mind clarity.

What is more, it acts as a second messenger of serotonin and dopamine. Dopamine controls cognitive processes – it is responsible for memory, thinking and problem solving. Inositol concentration in the body is thus extremely important to maintain healthy cognitive functions.

Improved mental well-being
Inositol is used for the synthesis of IP3 (inositol trisphosphate) and DAG (diacylglycerol). These substances are secondary messengers which interacts with different receptors, including GABA-B, 5-HT1 and 5-HT2 in the serotonergic system. Too low inositol levels impair neurotransmission and may cause symptoms of depression, anxiety and insomnia.

Inositol sensitize receptors to the action of serotonin and dopamine and may consequently prevent problems related to low levels of these neurotransmitters. It is effective in fighting panic attacks and commonly used for improving mood and fighting anxiety-depression disorder.

Studies have shown that inositol can be used successfully in treating obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Even though its mechanism of action in this case has not been fully understood yet, all examined individuals supplemented with inositol for 12 weeks experienced a considerable decrease in symptoms of OCD. These were not just subjective opinions of participants in tests – they have been confirmed by SPECT (single-photon emission computed tomography).

Inositol as a lipotropic factor
Inositol reduces the risk of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases. It improves fat metabolism – supports fat emulgation, breakdown and redistribution in the body It works against lipid accumulation in organs and arteries and prevents hepatic steatosis and cirrhosis.

Improved lipid metabolism has a beneficial effect on the lipid profile. Inositol contributes to decreasing the concentration of “bad cholesterol”, namely low-density lipoproteins (LDL) while increasing the levels of the desired HDL cholesterol.

To sum up, Inositol Capsules is a safe way to restore the balance of the endocrine and nervous system. It is recommended especially when the nervous system is overloaded and for chronic stress which destabilises body functions. The formula can be used to support the treatment of infertility, PCOS and depression-anxiety disorder.
