Inositol – The Distance Sibling Of The B-Vitamin In Swissgarde Nutritional Alternative

If you take a good look at the contents of some of our Supplements, especially the ones that contain the B-Vitamins like Stress Active, Diavite, Fat burner, Skin hair, and nail, etc, you will notice one silent but important additive which accompanies the mix and that is Inositol.

Inositol and B-Vitamins

Before diving into inositol benefits let's answer the question, "what is inositol"? Inositol is a B-vitamin-like nutrient found naturally in whole grains, beans, nuts, and fruits.  It is also made by the body and is available as a dietary supplement. It is popularly referred to as Vitamin B-8.

There are nine types of inositol occurring in nature.  Two forms, Myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol, have specific functions in our cells.  Over the last several years, research has found that a certain ratio of these two forms seems to work better than either form alone.  That ratio is 40 to 1, meaning forty parts Myo-inositol to one part D-chiro-inositol.

Inositol is a carbohydrate and it tastes sweet but the sweetness is far less than common sugar (sucrose). Inositol is a word used in dietary supplements whereas Myo-inositol is the preferred name. Myo-inositol is highly utilized in the structural foundation of secondary messengers and eukaryotic cells. Inositol is also an important component of structural lipids and their various phosphates (PI and PPI).

Inositol And The Human Body

Liver health

Inositol’s primary function is to keep fats collected from the body, particularly in the liver. Inositol is a prime additive in Swissgarde’s Fat Burner, a supplement used as part of a mix for weight regulation. It is essential for liver health

Promoting Sleep

One of the major reasons for not getting asleep at night is overthinking. The human brain is unable to rest and thoughts keep coming and going thereby keeping us awake. The thought process is guided by serotonin, a hormone. When serotonin levels are low, we are unable to sleep – maintaining optimal levels of serotonin promotes deep and sound sleep. Inositol works very well with serotonin and makes sure that the levels are high enough to make you feel peaceful during your sleeping hours.

Inositol not only works to promote healthy serotonin levels but it also communicates with the GABA receptors in the brain (GABA is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter of the CNS ). GABA receptor's proper functioning ensures that you keep your cool. In situations of higher stress, GABA receptors don’t work correctly thereby imparting insomnia. Inositol keeps a check on the proper functioning of GABA receptors and makes sure they are covered to give you anxiety- and stress-free calmness.
This once again explains why it’s part of Stress Garde which is administered in cases of Insomnia.

Hair Care and Growth

Depleted levels of Inositol affect the hair and individuals suffering from hair fall or itchy scalp might be inositol deficient. Deficiency in inositol levels happens largely due to these two reasons:
1. Diet doesn’t include inositol: Diet might be the main problem as most of us don’t supplement with B Vitamins as well as Inositol. Inositol is found in citrus fruits as well as other fruits and vegetables. If the diet doesn’t have those foods, it might lead to lower levels of Inositol hence hair issues.
2. Caffeine intake: Too much tea, coffee, and alcohol intake reduces Inositol levels; thereby giving rise to hair as well as other health issues
This explains why Inositol is included in the Hair, Skin & Nail Supplement from Healthgarde.

Role in Blood Sugar

Inositol helps the body use insulin. Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas and released into the bloodstream.  Insulin allows our cells to take in glucose (sugar) and produce energy.

When you eat, food is broken down into glucose in your bloodstream.  Increasing glucose in your blood tells your pancreas to make insulin.  For insulin to work, it has to bind to the insulin receptor on the surface of the cell.  Think of a lock (the insulin receptor) and a key (insulin).

When insulin binds to its receptor, it “unlocks” and releases secondary messengers.  These secondary messengers tell the cell it is time to take in glucose from the blood.

Inositols function as secondary messengers.  This means that inositols are involved in insulin signaling.  They help the cell take in glucose from the blood.

People who have insulin resistance do not properly release secondary messengers (like inositol).  Glucose does not get into the cell efficiently.  Therefore, glucose in the blood remains high, which tells the pancreas to make more insulin.  The over-production of insulin results in both high insulin levels and high blood sugar.

This explains why Swissgarde in its wisdom, has it as one of the contents of Diavite.

So, whenever you hear inositol, be happy that Swissgarde makes it available to you.
