Once referred to as Vitamin B8, inositol is a substance naturally found in both plants and animals. As a brain health nutrient, inositol appears to:
- Play a key role in brain cell membrane formation and function, serving as a precursor to phospholipids that make up neurons
- Support good cell-to-cell communication throughout the brain and the rest of the nervous system
- Regulate the function of various neurotransmitters, including serotonin
