Inofolic HP 30 sachets Myo-Inositol Folic Acid and Alpha-Lactalbumin
What is the physiological role of inositol and folic acid?
Although we cannot define it exactly as a vitamin, inositol is considered a vitamin factor, part of the B group. In the human body, it is present in phospholipids and is able to stimulate the endogenous production of lecithin. Scientific research shows that taking inositol contributes to the improvement of ovarian function. Its biological role also consists in the specific activity of controlling the metabolism of fats and sugars and the cellular functions of the nervous system; as a result, inositol is found to be essential for hair growth and hair loss. Scientific research has revealed how diabetic patients eliminate a significantly greater amount of inositol than non-diabetic patients. In cases of insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes, inositol contributes to the improvement of the general clinical picture; in this context, inositol may be useful in preventing and correcting the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying the metabolic and reproductive disorders associated with polycystic ovary syndrome.
Folic acid is a water-soluble vitamin belonging to the B vitamins. Folic acid plays a major role in amino acid metabolism, protein and nuclear synthesis, and chromosome repair, which is why it is a major factor in normal cell division and tissue growth. Its activity contributes to the fight against conditions of hyperhomocysteinemia.
What are the nutritional sources of inositol and folic acid?
The richest plant sources of inositol include: citrus fruits, cereals, dried fruits, peanuts, seeds /wheat sprouts/, vegetables, brewer’s yeast. Fresh fruits and vegetables contain more inositol than frozen, canned and salted products.
Folic acid is contained in green plants with broad leaves, in the liver, in eggs and vegetables, while its content is scarce in fruits (except oranges), meat and milk. Heat treatment of food destroys almost completely the folate content in a few minutes.
What are the indications for taking Inofolic as a dietary supplement?
