Inositol is a non-essential member of the B-Complex family with dietary sources from both animal and plant foods. Inositol is found in all cell membranes as a component of signaling molecules that mediate cellular responses to external stimuli. Availability of Inositol is especially important in the brain and central nervous system, as it is an important participant in neurotransmitter signaling. In addition, Inositol is critical for the proper action of insulin, lipid metabolism, and for the maintenance of calcium balance within the cell.
As a dietary supplement, take 1/4 level teaspoon 1 to 3 times daily. Consider taking these other NOW products: B-Complex, Choline and TMG.

I use this product in combination with 5-htp for OCD and other anxiety- and stress related complaints. All I can say is that these two products have been a god-sent, since I have never responded well to SSRI medication in the past. I am currently taking six spoons of 2mg each divided over the day, and aim to claim up to 18g a day, but it's already helping a lot. I feel very calm and relaxed most of the time, and I notice I tend to worry far less over things that would normally have me stressed out all day long.
I've had problems with panic disorder in the past but had CBT treatment about 14 years ago and have only had the odd panic attack here and there since then. I bought this supplement for help with GAD but on the sixth day I had a really intense bout of panic attacks about two hours after I took my dose. I took one teaspoon twice a day for the first few days and then one teaspoon three times a day for the last three. Maybe this was too much, I'm not sure, but I'd read that two teaspoons, three times a day was the amount used in most clinical trials. So I didn't take any the next day and the day after I took half a teaspoon and had another bout of panic about two hours after. Tried again later that day with the same result. I cannot explain why this supplement had this effect on me because I've read so many great things about it and I know it's really helpful to many people with GAD. I'd still recommend it to others but I can only rate it based on my experience and it was definitely a one star affair.
