Since virtually no information is available concerning the myo-inositol content of dietary constituents, we have measured the amount of this material present in 487 foods by gas-liquid chromatography. We observed that the greatest amounts of myo-inositol were present in fruits, beans, grains, and nuts. Fresh vegetables and fruits were found to contain more myo-inositol than did frozen, canned, or salt-free products. The data provided in this report were used to develop diets that contained… Expand
Potential role and therapeutic interests of myo-inositol in metabolic diseases.
TLDR
The aim of this review is to focus on the potential benefits of a dietary supplement of myo-inositol, by far the most common inositol isomer in foodstuffs, in human disorders associated with insulin resistance, in prevention or treatment of some diabetic complications (neuropathy, nephropathy, cataract), and the relevance of such a nutritional strategy for each context on the basis of the clinical and/or animal studies.

The free and total myo-inositol contents of early lactation and seasonal bovine milk
Abstract A high performance anion-exchange chromatographic method employing pulsed amperometric detection was applied to the determination of endogenous free and total myo-inositol in bovine milk,Expand
Myo-inositol: its metabolism and potential implications for poultry nutrition—a review
TLDR
This review intends to provide information about the meaning of dietary MI in animal metabolism as well as to discuss potential implications of dietaryMI in poultry health and performance with the aim to identify open questions in poultry research. Expand
The effect of microbial phytase and myo-inositol on performance and blood biochemistry of broiler chickens fed wheat/corn-based diets.
TLDR
It can be concluded that dietary supplementation with MYO or phytase was effective in improving performance of commercial broiler chickens, however, further work is required to explore complex ontogenetic effects of MYO and possible involvement of both myo-inositol and phytases in Na-dependent transport mechanisms.

Plant-Based Foods as a Source of Lipotropes for Human Nutrition: A Survey of In Vivo Studies
TLDR
The exhaustive review of rat studies investigating phytochemical effect on hepatic lipid metabolism suggests that some fatty acids, acetic acid, melatonin, phytic acid, some fiber compounds, oligofructose, resistant starch, some phenolic acids, flavonoids, lignans, stilbenes, curcumin, saponins, coumarin, some plant extracts, and some solid foods may be lipotropic.

Inositol and human reproduction. From cellular metabolism to clinical use
TLDR
The research points out the potential beneficial role of inositol supplementation in polycystic ovarian syndrome and in the context of assisted reproduction technologies and in vitro fertilization. Expand
New Frontiers for the Use of IP6 and Inositol Combination in Treating Diabetes Mellitus: A Review
TLDR
It is demonstrated that an IP6 and inositol combination supplement may regulate insulin secretion, modulate serum leptin concentrations, food intake, and associated weight gain, which may be beneficial in both prediabetic and diabetic states. Expand
Myo-Inositol and D-Chiro-Inositol in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. -
TLDR
A compilation of various studies with an aim of easy understanding of the mechanism and benefits of Inositol and its various forms in treatment of PCOS has been made. Expand
Study of the insulin-sensitizing effect of myo-inositol in mouse : Evaluation of the nutritional interest of a myo-inositol supplementation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that chronic myo-inositol treatment improves insulin sensitivity, reduces white adipose tissue accretion and improves mice survival mice to paraquat challenge and that combining it with other insulin sentitizing strategies may however potentiate their action and help reducing insulin-sensitizing drugs use. Expand
Inositol During Perinatal Transition
TLDR
Adding inositol to parenteral nutrition or to enteral feeding decreased the risk of retinopathy of prematurity and augments the efficacy of antenatal glucocorticoid for acceleration of lung maturity, according to experimental results. Expand

Dietary myo-inositol intake and peripheral nerve function in diabetic neuropathy.
TLDR
No statistically significant changes were observed in any of the measured nerve conduction velocities in the diabetic patients, but it was found that the ingestion of the high-myo-inositol diet resulted in a statistically significant increase in the median sensory. Expand
Influence of dietary myoinositol on nerve conduction and inositol phospholipids in normal and diabetic rats.
TLDR
Comparison between the values before and with up to nine weeks of dosing revealed no alteration in conduction velocity, and no statistically significantly difference in sciatic nerve myoinositol was demonstrated, but the sorbitol and fructose concentrations were increased. Expand
Raised plasma-myoinositol levels in uraemia and experimental neuropathy.
TLDR
It is suggested that abnormally raised myoinositol concentrations may be the factor in uraemic plasma that influences the development and progression of ur aemic polyneuropathy. Expand
Myoinositol Metabolism in Diabetes Mellitus: Effect of Insulin Treatment
TLDR
Observed observations suggest that restoration of normal intracellular myoinositol concentrations might prove to be of benefit in the prevention and treatment of certain of the complications associated with human diabetes mellitus and are consistent with the speculation that hyperglycemia may condition a widespread relative intracelhilar transport in man. Expand
Free and lipid myo-inositol in tissues from rats with acute and less severe streptozotocin-induced diabetes.
TLDR
Brain and kidney inositol concentrations were increased in the mildly diabetic animals at 13 weeks and there was a progressive decrease in sciatic-nerve inositols and Lipid inositoli of sciatic nerve was decreased in the acutely diabetic group only. Expand
EFFECT OF MYO-INOSITOL ON PERIPHERAL-NERVE FUNCTION IN DIABETES

TLDR
A marked decrease in motor nerve conduction velocities can be demonstrated within days following the spontaneous development of hyperglycemia in man or following the induction of experimental diabetes in the rat, and this abnormality is promptly restored towards normal in both man and rodent.

Effects of insulin and dietary myoinositol on impaired peripheral motor nerve conduction velocity in acute streptozotocin diabetes.
TLDR
It is suggested that insulin deficiency, and possibly hyperglycemia, are primary factors in the development of imparied MNCV in acute experimental diabetes. Expand
PHOSPHOLIPIDS IN SYNAPTIC FUNCTION
TLDR
A relatively minor group of phospholipids containing inositol, and their precursors phosphatidate and CDP-diacylglycerol are concerned, which are seen in a wide variety of tissues in response to activation of various plasma membrane receptors. Expand

TLDR
Observations suggest the development of dysfunction of the Schwann cell-myelin complex rather than of the axons or anterior horn cells in rats, which may contribute to the pathogenesis of uremic polyneuropathy. Expand
