IP6 (inositol hexophosphate)
Inositol Hexaphosphate (IP6) is also known as myo-inositol hexaphosphate an all natural substance and very safe. IP6 is found in substantial amounts in whole grains, cereals, legumes, nuts and seeds and is the primary energy source for germinating seeds.
IP6 and other inositol phosphates (IP1, IP2, IP3, IP4, IP5) are found in most mamalian cells where it assists in “regulating and normalizing ” a variety of important cell functions.
IP3 is the key regulator of cell growth, therefore Inositol & Cal Mag IP6 produce the maximum effect desired. IP3 controls cell production and differentiation.
Inositol is recognized as part of the vitamin B complex group. Inositol is found in meats, citrus fruits, nuts, beans and whole grains. It is water soluble and not stored very well in the body. Thus an intake of inositol is needed daily to support many functions.
This is the original formula by Dr. A.K.M. Shamsuddin, MD, PhD. This formulation of naturally occurring compounds IP-6 and Inositol is produced from highly purified rice bran. Developed over the last 20 years through scientific research by Dr. Shamsuddin, the combination of Inositol and its derivative Inositol Hexaphosphate (IP6), works synergistically with many body systems to help support optimal health.
As a general guide: Two capsules twice daily for overall good health or as directed by a health professional. Eight capsules twice daily for those with specific health concerns. Best taken on an empty stomach.
Notes on intake
Some people require IP6 in high amounts. In this case the powder is the preferred form. To help you calculate the intake that you require please see the guidelines below; Regarding the powder: 1 x measure of the powder mix (supplied in the tub) delivers 6.9g of actual powder of which 3.2g is P6 and 880mg is inositol. Regarding the capsules: 1 capsule delivers 400mg IP6 and 110 inositol Therefore, 1 x measure of power is the equivalent to 8 capsules
