Inositol is one of the isomer of glucose and a pseudo-vitamin well (so it vitamin B 8 is said to be) and in the human body, carbohydrates are produced. In many plants, and also in the bodies of animals there. It can be in the lab also produced.
Studies have shown that inositol in the form of supplements, food, etc. can have additional health benefits to the individual finish.
Sources of inositol in food:
– fiber rich foods and an acid like beans and beans
– brown rice
– yeast, water, barley, and …
An overview of the acts of inositol in the body:
– Structural role in the body as the main component of the membranes of the cells
– improving effect of insulin (the hormone lowering blood sugar)
– the effect on the neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine in the brain that affect mood and behavior, cognitive impact they have
An overview of the studies conducted in the field of inositol and diseases:
– In patients with metabolic syndrome, consumption inositol dose of 2 g twice a day for a year, improves insulin sensitivity and blood sugar, reduce the level of blood triglycerides and blood pressure in patients has been.
– In previous studies, etc. daily intake of 4 g myo – inositol plus 400 mcg folic acid during pregnancy could be to the Prevention of gestational diabetes to help. But studies in this field, not enough. Also, the consumption of inositol in women with gestational diabetes, improves insulin sensitivity and glycemic control in these individuals is.
– Taking inositol in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), also, which improves insulin function is. Apparently inositol can improve productivity, be, especially when combined with folic acid should be used. In one study of women with polycystic ovary syndrome, etc., simultaneous use of 4 grams of inositol with 400 micrograms of folic acid for 3 months, caused the induction of ovulation in more than 60% of women were. Taking inositol ( with a dose of between 2 to 4 g per day) in women suffering from laziness, ovaries, etc., improves insulin sensitivity, order of menstruation. and ovulation of ovarian function and fertility has been.
– In some studies, consumption inositol dose 6 to 12 grams per day based on patients with depression, causes improvement in disease is, but its effect of antidepressants more information.
– In some studies, the consumption of a dose of 18 g inositol for chronic, with reducing the number of attacks, phobic یاAttack Panic the relationship is. Taking it to the acute effect is not.
The doses used:
Two of the forms, the famous inositol include: myo – inositol (MYO) and D-Ciro – inositol (DCI). It is not yet known which type of the effectiveness of higher there.
To summarize the dosage of inositol in previous studies, the following has been:
– For the syndrome metabolic: daily, two times, 2 grams of MYO for a year.
– For the syndrome polycystic ovary syndrome: daily 1.2 g DCI or daily, two times, 2 grams of MYO + 200 mcg folic acid for 6 months.
– To control blood sugar in gestational diabetes: daily, two times, 2 grams of MYO + 400 micrograms folic acid during pregnancy.
– For the mental illnesses: daily 12 to 18 grams of MYO for 4 to 6 weeks.
* Note: the form DCI impact of neurological don’t have much form myo – inositol case is effective.
– Dose treatment needed inositol for disorders of neurological higher (between about 12 to 18 grams per day for divided over two to three times a day) and to help improve fertility and insulin sensitivity, lower, and between 2 to 4 grams per day is required.
– Inositol also for powder, there is easily in water and fruit juice can be solved that for people who have difficulty in swallowing tablets are suitable.
– Inositol can be used with or without food consumption.
– Often the start of the effects of clinical inositol after 2 to 4 weeks to be seen.
Side effects of inositol and safety:
- Taking inositol very secure and certain complications of consumption, it does not exist.
- Taking inositol dosage of 12 to 18 grams per day is safe just some of the subjects of gastrointestinal side effects, pain, stomach, and bloating have complained.
- The consumption of inositol in children 5 to 12 years old for the duration of 12 weeks, the safe had been.
- Inositol dose of 4 grams per day to pregnant women given and harmless been though more studies the direction of the conclusion being safe inositol in pregnancy is necessary, because in some studies, it has been said that inositol can cause the induction of uterine contractions used.
- About the safety of taking inositol during breast-feeding adequate information does not exist so it is better to consume them.
- About the safety of taking inositol in the long term, adequate studies have not been. In most studies, etc., taking inositol for less than a year it has been.
- Regarding the effect of being part inositol in the following cases not enough information is not present: respiratory distress syndrome, etc., Alzheimer’s disease, anxiety, autism, etc. for schizophrenia, etc., diabetic nephropathy, etc. disorder, neglect, etc. hyperactivity, lung cancer, diabetes, OCD, cancer, etc. the growth of hair. insomnia. high cholesterol
The properties of inositol mean?
Inositol, a carbohydrate that the body, food, and dietary supplements can be found. Various forms of this molecule there, and each of them have a chemical structure similar to glucose have. The properties of inositol is significant because in many processes of the body plays a role. Inositol supplements may treat certain diseases, including some anxiety disorders, and fertility help.
The properties of inositol
Inositol, because a lot of properties that are as of a vitamin categories. In this article 4, the advantage of inositol have been studied.
1. Possible influence on serotonin, anxiety reduce
Inositol on the production of neurotransmitters that are responsible for the transfer of information in the brain, are, etc. affect. Serotonin is one of the important neurotransmitters that under the influence of inositol placed. This molecule plays a lot on the body and behavior, and temperament is effective. Researchers, the effect of inositol supplements on the processes induced by serotonin, which include anxiety disorders such as panic disorder, etc. obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress (PTSD) have examined the. Several studies have shown that inositol may be the number of attacks nerve in patients with disorders inside the cut. A study in patients with OCD showed that 18 grams of inositol a day, their symptoms will improve. However, scant research that examines inositol and PTSD have paid, but no one will show, has been established. Generally, inositol can be used for certain types of anxiety disorders, the benefits will be.
2. May improve sensitivity to insulin to control blood sugar, help
Insulin, the hormone that controls blood sugar level in the body is important. Insulin resistance, etc., problems in the body’s ability to respond to insulin that with conditions such as metabolic syndrome is related to. From inositol can be used for the production of molecules that are in the function of insulin in the cells involved, etc. used. So, inositol, because of its potential to improve insulin sensitivity have been examined. A study of six months on 80 postmenopausal women with metabolic syndrome showed that taking 4 grams of inositol a day, insulin sensitivity, blood pressure and cholesterol levels over placebo improves. Other research in women with gestational diabetes are also health benefits of inositol for an increase in insulin sensitivity and blood sugar control is shown. In addition, inositol may be insulin function in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) improve.
3. Improve fertility in women with ovarian syndrome, poly-cystic
Polycystic ovary syndrome occurs when the body amounts of abnormally high hormone specific production does. Women with polycystic ovary syndrome at greater risk for developing several diseases and fertility problems. Problems related to insulin sensitivity may be one of the reasons for the decline of fertility in women with PCOS is. Since that inositol may be insulin sensitivity will improve, as a potential treatment has been studied. Studies have shown that inositol may be to improve the performance of the ovaries and fertility in women with polycystic ovary syndrome helpful. These studies are usually of low doses of 2 to 4 grams per day have used and its benefits in women with weight. overweight and obese has been seen. Generally, research has shown that inositol supplements may order the menstrual cycle, ovulation and fertility in women with PCOS improve.
4. Possible symptoms of depression, reduce the
Inositol due to the effects of the neurotransmitters in the brain are, as a treatment for depression have been studied. Some research have shown that taking 12 grams of inositol a day for four weeks can be symptoms of depression decrease. Another study reported that 6 grams a day, depression in 9 out of 11 participating improve. However, other research has shown that the addition of inositol to the standard drugs, depression symptoms more than medications alone do not improve. In addition, inositol in reducing depression in people who, previously to the standard drugs did not reply, etc., affecting acceptance. With supplement containing inositol familiar: tablets, Heere X
Other benefits of the possible
The properties of inositol from several other directions have been examined, including:
Weight loss: this supplement may cause a slight reduction in weight women with PCOS be.
Blood lipids: in some studies, improved blood lipid profiles such as cholesterol, have been reported.
Blood pressure: several studies showed a slight decrease in blood pressure in women with PCOS reported.
Inositol is naturally in the body and in a variety of foods can be found, but the greatest amount of beans, fruits, nuts, and grains can be seen. The value obtained from food, depending on the composition of the diet can be from less than 1 gram to multi-gram variable. When as a dietary supplement, consumed, safety is very good. In research studies, etc., the dose is from about 2 to 18 grams per day variable has been. At higher doses of 12-18 grams, some mild side effects reported include nausea, vomiting, pain, upset stomach, and bloating. However, it seems that a slight reduction of the dose of inositol improves the symptoms can be. Inositol supplements, even with doses about 4 grams per day in pregnant women, no effect of disturbing no.
