Inositol (or myo-inositol) is a B-vitamin-like molecule often used to help regulate blood sugar, manage polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and manage mood disorders such as anxiety. Inositol is a precursor to phosphatidylinositol, which is central to the phosphoinositide cycle. This cycle is essential to multiple brain signaling systems, delivering messages from a variety of hormones and neurotransmitters (brain messenger-molecules) from receptors on the nerve cell membrane to the inside of the cell. Essentially, inositol helps to improve the sensitivity of various receptors, which in turn helps to balance mood and blood sugar in cases of PCOS.
Research suggests that high doses of inositol can address the symptoms of behavioural and compulsive disorders, particularly those related to mood imbalances and worrying. Signaling systems dependent on the phosphoinositide system include neurotransmitters, which are key targets for antidepressant drugs. Recent research also supports a role for lower doses of inositol in cellular defense and normal cell growth and differentiation, especially in combination with I-P-6 (inositol hexaphosphate or phytate). Those suffering with poor regulation of blood sugar, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), or mood disorders such as anxiety may benefit from Inositol. It is also useful for people concerned with healthy cellular growth and differentiation.
Inositol Caps contain myo-inositol, a B-like vitamin. Inositol is important for cellular defence and normal cell growth, signaling, and differentiation, especially in combination with inositol hexaphosphate (IP6).

Inositol (myo-inositol) is a B-vitamin-like simple polyol. Most people take small quantities of this nutrient in their multivitamins or B-complex pills without thinking about it.
Eating Disorders Twenty-four bulimic or binge eating patients took part in a double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover trial in which, after an initial run-in period, they took either 18 grams of inositol powder or a sugar placebo for six weeks each. They then switched over to taking the substance, which they had not taken in the previous period, again for six weeks. No one knew which sweet powder a given person was taking at a given time. When the
Inositol is a simple b-like vitamin with a phenomenal therapeutic capacity that is underappreciated. Inositol is also marketed under the name myo-inositol, which is essentially inositol. Inositol has various configurations in 3-dimensional space, one of them being myo-inositol. All inostiol molecules will take on the configuartion of myo-inositol at one time or another. Another form of inositol is inositol hexaphosphate (IP6). This is a different compound, but the two combined have excellent synergism for healthy cellular growth and differentiation.
AOR offers inositol both in capsule form and in powder form because inositol can have different therapeutic effects at varying doses. In smaller doses such as in the capsules, inositol helps
