Inositol vitamin editEdit

Also known as B8 vitamin.

Precursor for phytic acid (IP6). <<<<< «Inositol, or more precisely myo-inositol, is a carbocyclic sugar that is abundant in brain and other mammalian tissues, mediates cell signal transduction in response to a variety of hormone, neurotransmitters and growth factors and participates in osmoregulation. [2] It is a sugar alcohol with half the sweetness of sucrose (table sugar). It is made naturally in humans from glucose. Each kidney makes 2g a day; so 4g a day total is made. Other tissues synthesize it too, and the highest concentration is in the brain where it plays an important role making other neurotransmitters, and some steroid hormone bind to their receptors.[3]» (wikipedia)
