Inositol is considered a vitamin-like substance and it was identified 100 years ago in the urine of diabetics. There are nine different stereoisomers, of which the most prominent biologically active form is myo-inositol. It can be found in plants in the form of phytic acid and in animals as myo-inositol. Inositol can be found in virtually all tissues in the human body. 

Main function

The synthesis of phospholipids.

Biological functions

Inositol and some of its mono- and polyphosphates form the foundation for a number of signalilng and secondary messenger molecules. These are involved in a number of biological processes, including insulin signal transduction, intracellular calcium (CA2+) concentration control and the preservation of cell membrane potential. 

Benefits for the animal

Proper inositol supplementation optimises performance and helps cure fatty liver syndrome in laying hens.
