Inositol is a water-soluble, slightly sweet-tasting substance (cyclohexanehexol) which can already be found in plant and animal tissue and also in the human body. Although inositol used to be designated "muscle sugar", this does not concern a carbohydrate. In the human organism, inositol takes on numerous physiological functions and is present in tissue, membranes and organs. For example, high concentrations of inositol can be found in the brain, in the kidneys, the liver and the spleen. Our pure inositol obtained from plants can simply be dissolved in water or tea, or sprinkled over meals.
