“Inositol helps in many physiological processes in Bodybuilding. Like insulin, inositol is highly anabolic thus leading to enhance stamina and faster muscle building.”
Inositol is a form of simple sugar. It is necessary for the proper functioning of muscles, nerves and brain in collaboration with other B-vitamin such as vitamin B-6, B-12, folacin, choline, biotin, betaine, and methionine. Inositol also prevents the accumulation of fat in the liver and facilitates the breakdown of fats so as to maintain a healthy blood cholesterol levels. Considering the above benefits of inositol, if taken correctly it has a role in many important physiological processes for a bodybuilder.
As inositol aids in the nerve signal transmission and transportation of lipids within the body thus helping in contraction of muscles more efficiently and will also help the bodybuilder to utilise the body fat as fuel for your workouts. As Inositol it serves to increase insulin sensitivity which is very beneficial for bodybuilders. Like insulin, inositol is highly anabolic thus leading to enhance stamina and faster muscle building. It also increase creatine absorption, which is another highly anabolic nutrient.
Inositol is mostly present in the cell membrane of all living organisms and helps in cell proliferation as well as cell differentiation. Inositol is also found mostly in wheat, cereals and oats meal, brown rice, and brewers yeast. In fruits and vegetables it’s found in beans, cabbage, bananas, oranges, nuts and legumes. Organ meats like animal’s heart and liver is a good source of inositol. However all the inositol present in food is not bio available. Inositol found in lecithins can be absorbed directly into the blood. But it’s not available to the human body when found in beans and grains as it is bound to phytates which hinders ability of the body to absorb iron, calcium, and zinc.
As inositol is not an essential nutrient there is no ideal Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) .But ideally a dosage of approximately 20 milligrams to 75 milligrams seems to be a sufficient amount to take.
