Inositol is a naturally occurring vitamin-like substance that is found in many plants and animals.
It is found in high concentrations in the brain where it facilitates communication between brain cells.
All major neurotransmitters — dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, acetylcholine, and GABA — rely on inositol to relay messages.
Just as you have trouble talking on your cellphone when there’s a poor signal, neurotransmitters can’t do their jobs well when there is an inositol deficiency.
Neurotransmitters play a major role in many aspects of your life – including mood, productivity, ability to handle stress, ability to learn and remember, sleep, cravings, addictions, and more.
Because inositol is a part of so many brain chemical systems, inositol supplementation can help a wide array of cognitive functions.
