Health Benefits of Inositol or Some Call it Vitamin B-8
Inositol is a compound found in lots of fruit-and especially in cantaloupe, oranges, soybeans, nuts, and eggs. It prevents the accumulation of fats in the liver and also has been used for depression, panic disorder, mood disorders, Alzheimer's disease, and diabetes. Neurotransmitters in the brain need Inositol to work properly and thus inositol helps with depression. Also there is a lot of Inositol in fruit fiber and it may be one of the reasons why fruit fiber seems to prevent cancer. Plus it seems to help in the lowering of cholesterol. You can also buy Inositol in tablet form.
