Inositol is a substance from the group of polyhydric alcohols that is structurally similar to glucose. It is sometimes called vitamin B8, although it does not meet all the criteria for vitamins – e.g. it can be naturally synthesized in the human body. Inositol is the precursor for two classes of signaling molecules (P-IPG and A-IPG), which regulate important functions in the body.
Inositol supports the proper functioning of the nervous system. It is an important building component of cell membranes and is involved in cell signaling. Moreover, it exerts anxiolytic and antidepressant effects. The exact mechanism of this action is unknown. It is thought to be related to the regulation of neurotransmitter activity (including serotonin and noradrenaline). People struggling with depression and bipolar disorder very often have a much lower level of inositol than healthy people.
Inositol is important for maintaining normal fertility. It is most often recommended for women who are struggling with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This condition is often accompanied by ovulation problems that make it difficult to get pregnant. It is believed that inositol supplementation may reduce the symptoms of PCOS, promote the restoration of regular menstrual cycles, and increase the chance of having offspring. Inositol is also beneficial for men – it participates in sperm cell maturation and their migration from the epididymis. Studies have shown that reduced levels of inositol in the epididymis and seminal fluid correlate with impaired fertility. Inositol supplementation appears to improve sperm parameters in patients with oligoasthenoteratozoospermia (OAT).
Inositol may bring positive effects in the treatment of metabolic syndrome. A one-year study with 80 women struggling with metabolic syndrome showed that supplementation with inositol contributed to an increase in insulin sensitivity, helped to stabilize serum glucose and had a beneficial effect on the lipid profile. It is noteworthy that the study used a preparation containing myo-inositol.
To sum up, Swanson Inositol is a preparation with a wide spectrum of positive properties. It is recommended especially for people struggling with metabolic disorders. It may also help to improve the mental condition.
