The body produces its own myo-inositol from glucose, one theory being that it is produced by intestinal bacteria. Interestingly, large quantities of inositol are found in the spinal cord nerves, the brain and cerebral spinal fluid.Most sources suggest a daily intake of 100mg - 1,000mg per day with higher doses of 4000mg sometimes taken for specific purposes. Myo-Inositol is non- toxic and well tolerated. Many foods contain myo-inositol, however, the most prevalent sources are unprocessed whole grains, citrus fruits, dried prunes and brewer’s yeast.At Nature’s Best we prefer to supply myo-inositol rather than D-chiro-inositol as the myo form is believed to have 10 times greater absorption. We also prefer the powdered form over capsules, since at 4grams per day this would mean having to take 8 x 500mg capsules to achieve the suggested 4g dose.
Myo-inositol makes the perfect partner to Strongstart for women, for those trying for a baby. It also makes a great combination taken with Premtis®, our supplement for younger women that includes key nutrients (namely magnesium and B vitamins for normal psychological function).
If you are not already doing so, we would suggest that you keep your doctor informed of any supplements that you are taking.
