Inositol represents a cluster of molecules with a similar structure, which counts nine stereoisomers. Usually, the term inositol is used for the myo-inositol stereoisomer. Considered a pseudovitamin compound, inositol is part (erroneously, according to some specialists) of the B complex family and is found in many foods, in high concentrations in whole grains and citrus fruits.

Inositol is a naturally occurring molecule found in the phospholipids of cell membranes, in plasma lipoproteins, and as inositol phosphates in the nucleus of cells. Because when we talk about inositol we are actually referring to a group of nine different stereoisomers, it would be more correct to use the plural - inositols. However, the term inositol is generally used to refer to the most bioavailable type of the stereoisomers, myo-inositol. Bioavailability means the amount of active substance released and absorbed in the body, which reaches the site of action and manifests its biological effect.


Adjuvant in PCOS: one of the valid causes of polycystic ovary syndrome is insulin resistance. Myoinositol contributes to increasing insulin sensitivity and improving the activity of insulin receptors. Contributes to: changing the FSH/LH ratio, decreasing the testosterone level and restoring the normal menstrual cycle.

Relief of panic disorders: Although the evidence is not sufficient, current studies suggest a role for inositol in controlling panic attacks. It can help reduce the feeling of fear of public places or open spaces (agoraphobia).

Adjuvant in obsessive-compulsive disorder: there are some suggestions from scientists that indicate that the administration of inositol to people with OCD for a period of six weeks can contribute to the improvement of symptoms.

Pregnancy: in pregnant women carrying fetuses with neural tube defects, a low level of inositol has been observed, compared to women whose pregnancy proceeds normally. Inositol can prevent a wide range of neural tube defects resistant to folic acid supplementation.

Other effects: adjunct to the medication of patients with depressive states; inositol is administered intravenously to premature babies with respiratory problems.
