Inositol Vitamin B8 Powder
- Calculated at Checkout
Inositol, formerly known as Vitamin B8 but is more commonly considered a pseudovitamin, is found primarily in fruits and whole grains, but it can also be synthesized by the human body from glucose. The name collectively refers to the molecules that have a similar structure, a group of nine stereoisomers. The stereoisomer in particular that it’s named after is called myo-inositol. It plays an essential role in the communication that occurs between cell-to-cell communications (e.g.; transmission of nerve impulses). It also assists in the health and maintenance of cell membranes tissues in the brain, liver, and muscles. Inositol is an indirect source of glucuronic acid, a sugar acid derived from glucose that plays a key role in the metabolism cycle. The use of Vitamin B8 has been used to support fertility health in women, blood sugar health, and may assist in reducing anxiety.†

I have only been using this product for a week, and so far no side effects, that are noticeable yet. I have been using 6 grams (2 teaspoons) twice a day in water or unsweetened iced tea. I am being treated for anxiety, major depressive disorder and PTSD. My Psychiatrist gave me an information sheet on it, and recommended it as a supplement. I also am trying it to see if it will help with possibly losing some weight which is caused by some of the psych meds I take. At this point, I have to say that I haven't felt the overall feeling of exhaustion I was experiencing recently, and actually feel less "brain fog" and an increase in my ability to focus more clearly. I don't know if the Inositol Powder is the reason, but I am continuing to take it, and will update after my 4th week passes.
I have only been using this product for just over a week so my review is limited. I have yet to experience any significant results. However, I can attest to certain side effects. I have experienced moderate nausea and headaches with product use. I have taken with food and on empty stomach. The nausea lasts about 2-3 hours, the headache lasts half the day. I use 1/4 tsp in 8 oz water daily. I am hoping that with continued use the side effects will lessen. I will continue using this product and will update my review with changes.
