Inositol (or myo-inositol) is a B-vitamin-like molecule often used to help regulate blood sugar, manage polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and alleviate the symptoms of mood disorders such as low mood or anxiousness. Inositol is essential to multiple brain signaling systems, as it helps improve the sensitivity of various receptors, therefore enhancing the delivery of messages from a variety of hormones and neurotransmitters (brain messenger-molecules). Essentially, this helps hormones such as insulin and neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine work more effectively.
Research suggests that high doses of inositol can address the symptoms of behavioural and compulsive disorders, particularly those related to mood imbalances. 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 may benefit from AOR Inositol. It can also be used as a preventive, for people concerned with healthy cellular growth and differentiation.
