Inositol powder is a very cost-effective way to take inositol because it is less expensive per gram than inositol in tablets or capsules (1/2 teaspoon = 2,000 milligrams). Inositol powder readily dissolves in water and has a slightly sweet taste.
Inositol may improve ovulation. In one study, 136 PCOS women took inositol (100 mg., twice daily) for 14 weeks. Another group of PCOS women took placebo pills. The ovulation frequency was significantly higher in the treated group (23%) compared with the placebo (13%).
Two other recent medical studies have concluded: "Myo-inositol is a simple and safe treatment that is capable of restoring spontaneous ovarian activity and consequently fertility in most patients with PCOS", and "Treatment of PCOS patients with myo-inositol provided a decreasing of circulating insulin and serum total testosterone was well as an improvement in metabolic factors".
Inositol, in the B vitamin family, is a necessary component of the membranes of your cells and is vital to many biological processes in your body.
