Inositol (Myo-Inositol was once referred to as Vitamin B-8) is a natural sugar that can be produced in the human body through the conversion of glucose in the kidneys. Because it can be produced in the body, it is no longer considered an essential nutrient.
Inositol in its phospholipid forms, is essential for fat metabolism in the liver, as well cellular health (especially in the eyes, heart, and bone marrow). It is also involved with cell signaling in the nervous system and DNA repair. Inositol may improve insulin sensitivity, which may help increase fertility in women with Polycystic Ovaries (PCOS). *
