Inositol Video No. 4
Inositol is an essential nutrient for cells and may be an important supplement for newborns and premature babies, although research has not established its importance in humans yet. A carbohydrate that closely resembles glucose in its structure, inositol is converted to phytic acid, which is found in grains and forms an insoluble calcium salt in the intestines of mammals.
