Health Benefits of Inositol Explained: Sleep, Healthy Blood Glucose Metabolism and More
Inositol and myo-inositol function as signaling molecules within the body and have potential health benefits related to supporting healthy glucose metabolism, sleep and reproductive health*.
Inositol acts as a second messenger within the endocrine system, impacting insulin and reproductive hormones. In women, inositol acts as a second messenger modulating the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) signaling in women.
What is Inositol?
Inositol is found in the tissues of every animal, plant and even bacteria. In mammals, inositol concentrations are especially high in the brain and heart. Inositol is both component of the outer lining of all cells in the body but it also functions as a second messenger; contributing to muscular and nerve function, and as well as playing role in helping the processing of fats by the liver.
As such, research suggests that inositol and myo-inositol have potential health benefits related to glucose metabolism and reproductive health.
