What is Inositol Caps?
Inositol is a compound found in cell membranes. It encourages healthy cellular signaling, promotes healthy insulin response, and is involved in neurotransmitter modulation, which may promote mood and emotional health. Inositol also helps maintain already-healthy hormone levels.
Phospholipids in cellular membranes depend on inositol to carry out a number of biological processes.
Inositol Caps Benefits
- Helps stabilize mood
- Involved in serotonin activity modulation
- Encourages healthy insulin response & glucose metabolism
Plant Nutrient in Convenient Form
Inositol (also known as myo-inositol) is a biomolecule the body makes from glucose. It is also found in plant foods such as legumes, whole grains and vegetables. Inositol is thought to be one of the reasons these foods confer their health benefits. But because phytates are indigestible by human enzymes, getting inositol requires microbial digestion – or supplementation.
Inositol is a key intermediate of secondary messengers and a primary component of cellular membrane phospholipids which is involved in a number of biological processes.
For healthy insulin response & glucose metabolism
Inositol is a primary component of cell membrane phospholipids. Both membrane-bound and free inositol are important for supporting many cell functions and participate in maintaining cellular responses to external signaling.
For example, inositol helps support insulin responsiveness, which in turn supports healthy lipid and glucose metabolism. Meta-analyses of clinical trials in women have shown inositol supplements can help encourage healthy insulin response and glucose metabolism, as well as support already-healthy hormone levels and reproductive system health.
Mood health support
Inositol-based compounds are involved in neurotransmitter activity modulation, giving inositol potential benefits in promoting mental and emotional health. Some research indicates inositol may be beneficial for supporting stable moods.
