Inositol

Inositol (aka. Vitamin B8) occurs naturally in many foods, with certain whole grains, citrus fruits, beans, and nuts having the highest concentrations. 

 

Inositol plays a structural role in your body’s cell membranes, positively influencing the action of insulin, and balancing neurotransmitters in the brain such as serotonin and dopamine. 

In clinical research, inositol has been shown to reduce panic attack frequency and intensity as well as improve overall anxiety levels. Additionally, preliminary evidence suggests it may be able to improve symptoms of depression and bipolar disorder in some patients.

How

To Take?

  • Recommended dose range: Take 2-8 grams (ie. 3/4tsp - 1 TBSP) with food/beverage once or twice daily.

    • Consider starting at 1/2 tsp (~1.5 grams) and increasing the dosage slowly over 1-2 weeks until the recommended dosage is reached to minimize gas/bloating/diarrhea.

What

To Know?

  • Inositol is easily dissolvable and mildly sweet. Try mixing it with food or a beverage of choice, such as oatmeal, coffee/tea, or a smoothie.

  • While some people may notice improvements in symptoms within a few days, it generally takes about 4-6 weeks at the target dosage (12-18 grams/day) to reach maximum effect. 

  • Some reported adverse effects include nausea, gas, diarrhea, insomnia, headache, dizziness, and tiredness. 

Buying Tips

  • We recommend purchasing  between 500g-1 kg worth of inositol for your first order. With taking ~15 grams per day, a 500g container will last about 5 weeks and a 1kg container will last about 10 weeks.

  • We advise against purchasing inositol in capsule/tablet formulations. You would have to swallow between 15-30 pills per day in order to achieve the target dose.
