Inositol is considered as one of the B vitamins naturally found in the cell membranes. Also known as Vitamin B8, inositol is involved in the metabolism of cholesterol and fats, including the removal of fats from the liver. Healthy metabolism of fat ensures that it is properly converted into useful energy, reducing the chances of cholesterol deposits in the bloodstream that causes heart diseases.

  • Inositol aids in promoting healthy cholesterol levels in the body. Through this, use of inositol supplements can help prevent the onset of conditions directly related to high cholesterol levels such as obesity, hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, atherosclerosis, Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), heart attack, and stroke. High blood cholesterol is the number one risk factor for the development of heart diseases, the world’s number one leading cause of death and disabilities.
  • Inositol helps minimise the accumulation of fats in the liver, especially when used with biotin and choline. Through this, it aids in promoting healthy liver functions for effective detox and metabolism. Inositol supplements can help restore healthy liver functions in people with liver disorders such as fatty liver disease.
  • This B-vitamin is a brain food. Research finds that inositol has the ability to improve the transmission of impulses between brain cells, which help improve learning, concentration, and memory. It is often used as an active ingredient for energy drinks and energy supplements that exhibit helpful brain boosting benefits during mental exhaustion.
  • Inositol aids in the production of serotonin to help stabilise mood. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that regulates mood, appetite, memory, and sleep. Reduced levels of this brain chemical affect all these biochemical processes. Low serotonin is linked with depression, mood swings, anxiety disorder, and bipolar disorder.
  • Inositol powder promotes healthy and strong hair. Being one of the B complex vitamins, it provides nourishment to stimulate healthy growth and prevent hair damage.

Inositol also called Vitamin B8 is a vitamin-like substance that resembles that of the B complex vitamins.  However, inositol is actually not a vitamin but a naturally occurring glucose isomer in the cell membranes. The body produces its own supply of inositol, but it can also be obtained from the diet including brown rice, wheat, cereals, oat flakes, brewer’s yeast, nuts, beans, cabbages, oranges, raisins, and legumes. The body uses inositol to metabolise fats and cholesterol, reduce fat deposits in the liver, support effective nerve transmission, and promote healthy production of the mood stabilising neurotransmitter serotonin. Through these mechanisms, inositol has been widely studied for its potential health benefits ranging from promoting healthy hair to reducing the chances of heart attack. Now Foods Inositol Powder is formulated to contain 100% pure inositol powder for maximum benefits.
