Introduction of Inositol：
Inositol Chinese nicknames are: cyclohexanol; cyclohexamethanol; muscle sugar; muscle sugar and so on. From the perspective of Haworth projection, the orientation of these hydroxyl groups relative to the ring plane is different, so it can be divided into various types, such as inositol, epi-inositol and scyllo-inositol, the most common is inositol. Inositol is a member of the B vitamin family and is closely related to choline. Inositol is found in many forms and supports the healthy function of cells.

Inositol is a type of sugar that influences both the body’s insulin response and several hormones associated with mood and cognition. It’s often referred to as vitamin B8, but it is not actually a vitamin. Inositol also has antioxidant properties that fight the damaging effects of free radicals in the brain, circulatory system, and other body tissues.
Inositol is found naturally in cantaloupe, citrus fruit, and many fiber-rich foods (such as beans, brown rice, corn, sesame seeds, and wheat bran). It is also sold in supplement form and used as a complementary therapy to treat a wide range of medical conditions, including metabolic and mood disorders.
D-chiro-inositol, inositol hexaphosphate (often referred to as “IP6”), and the compound myo-inositol are the most widely used inositol supplements. They are generally considered safe if taken appropriately.
