Inositol is a supplement that is most commonly sold in tablet form but also comes as a powder. The tablet is very sweet, as it is derived from honey, so it can be chewed or sucked on like candy. Despite its candy-like taste, this is a highly beneficial B vitamin, which is a nutrient your body craves when the nervous system needs support. Inositol can heal your nerves and help you wean off sugar. This supplement also helps digest fats out of the liver to promote healthy function of the liver and gallbladder.
One tablet is equivalent to 400 milligrams (mg) of inositol or, if a larger quantity is needed, 1/4 tsp of powder contains 700 mg of inositol. The powder can be mixed in water and consumed over a period of time.
Everyone's goal should be to get off of sugar; for this, Dr. Schmidt recommends always having a bottle of inositol on hand so when you have that craving, you are reaching for this tasty B vitamin instead of some form of candy. This is a great tool to kickstart a diet free of sugars.
