Jarrow Formulas Inositol is a dietary supplement containing pure pharmaceutical-grade inositol. The powder form ensures an easy and convenient dosage. Inositol shows many positive properties for the body, e.g. it supports fat and carbohydrate metabolism, normal liver function and may improve hormonal and metabolic parameters in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Inositol, also known as vitamin B8, belongs to the group of vitamin-like substances – compounds with similar effects to vitamins. Inositol occurs in the form of several isomers, of which myoinositol is biologically active.
An essential component of cell membranes
Inositol is part of phospholipids, and more specifically – phosphatidylinositol, which is a component of cell membranes, including brain and liver lipids. Inositol is believed to help in supporting cognitive functions and improving mental well-being. It may also have a protective effect on the liver.
Optimal glucose and insulin metabolism
Inositol in the form of inositol triphosphate (IP3) is a second signaling molecule, transmitting, among others, insulin signal. IP3 results from the cleavage of phosphatidylinositol diphosphate present in cell membranes. Inositol indirectly leads to increased expression of GLUT-4 glucose transporters, which are found, among others, in muscle tissue and are dependent on the action of insulin. This leads to an increase in glucose uptake from the bloodstream and, consequently, to a lowering of sugar levels and reduction of insulin resistance.
Help in the fight against PCOS
Polycystic ovary syndrome is one of the most common causes of menstrual disorders and infertility in women. PCOS is usually accompanied by insulin resistance. Inositol, by improving glucose-insulin metabolism, supports the regulation of hormonal and metabolic parameters in PCOS. It may also restore proper ovarian function and reduce symptoms such as hirsutism, as proven in numerous clinical studies.
In summary, Jarrow Formulas Inositol is a preparation recommended primarily to improve insulin sensitivity, as an adjuvant in impaired glucose tolerance, to women with PCOS, to improve cognitive functions and well-being, as well as to support liver health.
Inositol dissolves in water and is considered a safe, nontoxic substance which can be used for a long time. It is worth knowing that caffeine depletes the body of inositol. As a result, individuals drinking two or more cups of coffee daily are particularly susceptible to deficiency.
The recommended daily dosage is from 200 to 4000 mg. It is recommended to divide it into 2-3 doses and take them at intervals of several hours. For the best absorption, the supplement should be taken during a meal. The powder has a pleasant, naturally light sweet flavour. You can dissolve it in water and drink it.
