  1. What is the physiological role of Myo-Inositol and folic acid?

    Myo-Inositol is a vitamin factor belonging to B-group vitamins.

    It is available in the human body, present in phospholipids and can stimulate the endogenous production of lecithin.

    Furthermore, its biological role includes a specific activity to control the metabolism of fats and sugars and of cellular functions of the nervous system. Finally, it is essential for the growth of hair and baldness prevention. Scientific evidence demonstrates that Myo-Inositol can change some hormonal parameters, such as the reduction of plasma levels of LH, testosterone and prolactin and the LH/FSH ratio. Myo-Inositol also recovers a regular menstrual cycle with ovulation. Thanks to its modulating action on the ovarian function, Myo-Inositol is included into the protocols of controlled ovarian hyperstimulation. In case of insulin resistance or type II diabetes, Myo-Inositol demonstrates the ability of improving the overall metabolic picture.

    As far as the Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is concerned, Myo-Inositol aids to normalize the pathophysiological mechanisms based on the related metabolic and reproductive impairments.

    Folic acid is a water soluble vitamin belonging to group-B vitamins.

    Folic acid plays an essential role in the metabolism of amino acids, in the synthesis of protein and nucleic acids (above all in the production of DNA and RNA) and in the repair of chromosomes. Therefore, it is very important for the normal multiplication of cells and for the growth of tissues.

  2. Which are the food sources of Myo-Inositol and of folic acid?

    MYO-INOSITOL

    The richest vegetable sources of Myo-lnositol are contained in citrus fruits, integral cereals, dried fruits (peanuts), seeds (wheat germ), legumes (beans), and yeast. Fruit and fresh vegetables contain more Myo-lnositol than frozen food, either canned or preserved with salt.

    FOLIC ACID

    Folic acid is contained in green vegetables with a large leaf, in the liver, eggs and legumes, whereas the content in fruits is poor (save in oranges) meats and milk.

    Food cooking destroys almost completely the amount of pholates (99%) in a few minutes.

  3. When is it useful to use INOFOLICĀ®?

    INOFOLIC® can be used as an adjuvant in the protocols of controlled ovarian hyperstimulation.

    Furthermore, INOFOLIC® can be used as an adjuvant in the Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) under conditions of insulin resistance and pre-diabetes and in type II diabetes.
