D-Chiro-Inositol (DCI) is a sugar alcohol complex that is naturally produced by the body. It is a member of the B vitamin family (Vitamin B8) and plays an essential role in the pathways of mitochondria and energy in the cells to generate energy from sugar. When you eat food, sugar is extracted and absorbed into the blood. When cells cannot appropriately absorb glucose, it builds up in the blood, leading to possible health complications and imbalanced glucose levels.*
If the body cannot produce a sufficient amount of DCI, then the ability to respond to fluctuations in sugar levels will diminish. DCI may also works as a messenger for serotonin and dopamine. Both are neurotransmitters the central nervous system uses to signal positive moods. Individuals with lowered levels of DCI may feel that their mood is impacted. DCI may also helpful in boosting autophagy which is an essential part of clearing the debris from cells and providing better cellular performance.*
DCI is naturally available from certain foods, but an unbalanced diet due to a hectic schedule or environmental factors can decrease intake needed for optimal performance. Boost your D-Chiro-Inositol levels by ordering our exclusive D-Chiro Inositol supplement.
