and D-chiro-inositol are also components of glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol anchors and inositol phosphoglycans, which are second messengers of insulin action (2,3).
is the primary biologically active form of inostiol which could improve glucose tolerance by insulin sensitivity (Croze et al., 2013).
is a naturally-occurring metabolite mainly found in specialized brain cells known as glial cells, that assists with maintaining cell volume and fluid balance in the brain, and serves as a regulator for hormones and insulin in the body.
Most inositol studies have mainly been done with myo-inositol
, which the body transforms into inositol triphosphate, and which regulates insulin and hormones affecting the thyroid and ovaries.
In a prospective cohort trial, N= 46 with PCOS and hirsute received myo-inositol
2 g/2x daily for six months: (8)
Our results showed unlike valproate, the omega-3 fatty acids increased intracellular myo-inositol
and decreased INO1 expression.

hexaphosphate onto kaolinite and its effect on cadmium retention.
Inositol phosphates such as myo-inositol
and scyllo-inositol involve in various cellular functions including signaling processes, cell growth and differentiation, endocytosis, and apoptosis.
A cancer prevention trial using myo-inositol
in patients with bronchial dysplasia demonstrated significant reductions in the inflammatory cytokine IL-6, though other cancer-associated biomarkers did not significantly change with treatment.

Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ([sup.1]H MRS) is a useful tool that detects brain metabolites such as NAA (N-acetylaspartate), a marker for neuronal integrity or neuronal-glial homeostasis; Glx (GABA, glutamine, and glutamate); Cho (choline containing compounds), a measure of cellular density; Cr (creatine plus phosphocreatine), a marker of cellular energy level; and mI (myo-inositol
), a marker of brain osmotic balance and glial cells [5, 6].
