What is Inositol? Magic... or Science
If you say it enough like Hermione Granger and you flick your magic wand with enough oomph! “Inositol” kind of sounds like a spell word… though what it would do to your opponent? Let’s find out.
First, what is Inositol?
A little hitting of the books never hurt Hermione, in fact, the more you know, the better you’ll be able to use these vitamin-like substance for good! Inositol is found in food like cantaloupe, citrus fruits, beans, brown rice, sesame seeds and wheat bran. It’s produced naturally in our bodies, in animals and it can be made synthetically.
Why would you need an Inositol spell?
Sorry lol, life would be easier in Harry Potter with spells, let’s face it. Well, inositol has been known to improve insulin resistance, cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure. Which is why you’ll find Inositol in S’moo because besides these benefits, it helps women with PCOS by lowering triglyceride and testosterone levels and increasing ovary function.
It’s sometimes referred to as vitamin B8 but it’s not a vitamin… it’s a sugar. This “sugar” influences the insulin response in your body and effects several hormones associated with your mood and cognition. Not to mention it has antioxidant properties.
One of the ways Inositol effects mood is by stimulating the production of serotonin and dopamine, which makes you feel-good and can help improve depression and anxiety. Inositol is often given to people with panic attacks and agoraphobia (fear of public places), however more studies are being done on its effectiveness on panic attacks.
People suffering from metabolic syndrome can also benefit from inositol because it helps regulate blood sugar levels in your body which is critical for controlling insulin levels which can cause insulin resistance. Inositol has been studied for its potential to improve the body’s sensitivity to insulin (reducing insulin resistance). One study done on postmenopausal women with metabolic syndrome found that inositol improved insulin sensitivity, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
What do you think? Are you going to flick that magic wand and repeat the words “Inositol-Inositol” at your opponent and help them out if they have PCOS or insulin resistance?
