Science-Based Health Benefits of Inositol

Science-Based Health Benefits of Inositol

Inositol usually refers to myo-inositol although there are multiple other forms including d-chiro-inositol and inositol hexaphosphate. Inositol itself is a nutrient used for so many different processes that it is sometimes referred to as vitamin B8.

Although the body can make inositol, research shows that supplementing it can be beneficial.

Inositol is included in Liver Support and Thyroid Support by Beyond Vita®. 

1. Liver Health

Inositol can benefit the liver by helping to inhibit the buildup of triglycerides and because of this action it might help prevent the development of fatty liver disease.1 Another study also supports this finding.2

Inositol may help prevent the build up of fat in the liver.

2. Thyroid Health

Inositol can help cells in the thyroid gland produce more of the thyroid hormone T4.3

Researchers have reported that the combination of inositol and selenium could be useful for people with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s, also known ans autoimmune thryoiditis, can result in hypothyroidism meaning a sub-optimal amount of thyroid hormones are being produced.2

A 2017 study on 21 participants with autoimmune thyroiditis found that inositol and selenium can reduce the risk of progression to hypothyroidism.3 Another study with 168 people found a similar result.4

Inositol may help thyroid health.

3. Anxiety

A 2001 study with 20 people found that inositol can reduce anxiety in people with panic disorder better than the SSRI called fluvoxamine.5 Another study on people with panic disorder found a similar result.6

Inositol may help reduce anxiety in people with panic disorder.

4. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a hormone disorder in women that can cause increased levels of male hormones, hair growth, ovulation issues, weight gain, insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome.

Researchers in a 2018 study concluded that inositol could be recommended for the treatment of PCOS with insulin and for helping to raise low estrogen levels associated with PCOS.7

Another 2018 study found inositol could help increase the chance of pregnancy during vitro fertilization in women with PCOS.8

Inositol may help reduce the symptoms of PCOS.


Inositol is an important compound that may help improve liver and thyroid health in addition to other benefits.*
