Inositol isn’t a fancy, or even popular supplement for that matter, but it is definitely an underrated one that could offer support for your immune system apart from the cookie cutter mechanisms of the popular vitamins you can have come to know and love.
While you can often find it tagging along in B-vitamin supplements, it is not a true member of the B team, or even a vitamin, but something uniquely classified as a “pseudo vitamin”. You can find inositol naturally occurring in foods such as meat, fruits, legumes and some vegetables.
Inositol also naturally occurs in several forms, with the most common being myo-inositol and d-chiro inositol, and Inositol hexaphosphate, more commonly known as IP6.
So how does inositol contribute to enhanced immunity? Let’s check it out.
Supports Activity of Natural Killer (NK) Cells
The name “Natural killer cell” sounds cool, without a doubt. These immune cells are very good at what they do, which include eliminating a wide range of pathogens upon entry to the body. However, they do have limits.
For instance, it was found that the COVID-19 virus cause functional exhaustion of these cells, meaning that they are unable to effectively restrain illness. One way we may be able to prevent this from occurring? With supplemental inositol.
Inositol phosphate was found to enhance the activity of these natural killer cells, meaning that they fight on for a little longer. This may even make a difference in how our body handles the infection overall, and prognosis.
There is a huge correlation between metabolic diseases such as diabetes , hypertension or high blood pressure, and a diminished immune response. This is probably since these conditions are associated with chronic low grade inflammation which impairs optimal cell mediated immunity.
Inositol may help enhance blood glucose control and better cholesterol profiles, especially noteworthy in women diagnosed with PCOS.
Supports Immune Cell Development
Following illness, or during convalescence it is important for the immune system to “catch up” to its mandated functions. One way of doing this is by assisting with cellular development , through the use of an inositol based supplement.
This could also help support your resistance against pathogens by ensuring cells are at the ready to support immunity.
