D-chiro-inositol is an inositol isoform derived from myo-inositol. Myo-inositol is the most abundant form of inositol in nature; whereas d-chiro-inositol is made by the body from myo-inositol. A combination of both myo- and d-chiro-inositol is more effective for supporting insulin activity, normal androgen levels, ovarian function, metabolic parameters and mood balance
Inositol is a “B-vitamin like” nutrient found in many foods including grains and citrus fruit. In recent years, research has uncovered the powerful effects of high doses of this nutrient on regulating the menstrual cycle, supporting the healthy functioning of the ovaries, balancing mood and regulating metabolic factors. Myo- and d-chiro-inositol are two different forms of inositol. Myo-inositol is the most abundant form of inositol in nature; whereas d-chiro-inositol is made by the body from myo-inositol. Each performs different functions in the body, making it imperative to sustain the proper ratio of both molecules.
