Inositol (or myo-inositol) is a B-vitamin-like molecule often used to help manage mood disorders. Inositol is a precursor to phosphatidylinositol, which is central to the phosphoinositide cycle. This cycle is essential to multiple brain signaling systems, delivering messages from a variety of hormones and neurotransmitters (brain messenger-molecules) from receptors on the nerve cell membrane to the inside of the cell.
Research suggests that high doses of inositol can address the symptoms of behavioral and compulsive disorders, particularly those related to mood imbalances and worrying. Signaling systems dependent on the phosphoinositide system include neurotransmitters, which are key targets for antidepressant drugs.
Recent research also supports a role for lower doses of inositol in cellular defense and normal cell growth and differentiation, especially in combination with I-P-6 (inositol hexaphosphate or phytate). Those suffering with or mood disorders may benefit from Inositol. It is also useful for people concerned with healthy cellular growth and differentiation.
