INOSITOL , also called vitamin B8, is an organic chemical compound, structurally similar to glucose. It occurs naturally in the human body, as well as in many foods. We will meet it in nuts, cereal grains, legumes and citrus fruits. Inositol has many important functions in the body, m.in. it is involved in the transmission of intercellular signals, regulation of blood glucose levels and fat metabolism. For athletes, inositol may be beneficial due to its effects on glucose metabolism and insulin regulation. It can also help reduce oxidative stress, which increases with the intensity of physical exertion.
