Inositol is found in many foods, in particular, in cereals with high bran content, nuts, beans, and fruit, especially cantaloupe, melons and oranges.
It is part of the vitamin B-complex (sometimes called vitamin B8), plays an important role as the structural basis for a number of secondary messengers in eukaryotic cells, including inositol phosphates, phosphatidylinositol (PI) and phosphatidylinositol phosphate (PIP) lipids.
Inositol is not considered a vitamin itself because it can be synthesized by the body. Doses of 12-18 grams of EMP InositolTM per day have been shown to be effective in double-blind trials as an intervention for depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.*
