Once thought to be a vitamin, inositol is now understood to be involved in certain chemical signaling processes that serve to transmit messages inside cells. It also is considered to be a lipotropic agent, one that interacts with the metabolism of fats and helps to prevent inappropriate deposition of fat in organs such as the liver.
Inositol is a small carbohydrate molecule that occurs naturally in many foods, especially in meat, fish, fowl and milk; human breast milk typically contains high concentrations of inositol. A phosphorylated form called phytate is in cereal grains, but that form is poorly absorbed. Some forms of inositol are also present in nuts, fruits and vegetables.
Pure inositol is also known as myoinositol or unphosphorylated inositol. Inside cells, myoinositol can be phosphorylated to make phosphatidylinositol. This phosphorylated form can act as a messenger inside the cell. While inositol has been used as an ingredient in multivitamin formulations for decades, its internal cell activities are still being researched.
When our body tissues are finished with inositol, some of it is changed into glucuronate. Glucuronate is one of the body's principal detoxifiers. Many foreign chemicals and some cellular waste substances are combined with glucuronate. This makes them more water-soluble and more easily excreted. So, inositol does double duty in our bodies. First, it helps cells respond to external conditions; later, it supports detoxification of our tissues.
