Why choose Inositol by Seeking Health?
Inositol is primarily used in the treatment of liver problems, depression, panic disorder, and diabetes. It also aids in the breakdown of fats, helps in the reduction of blood cholesterol, and helps to prevent thinning hair. A diet low in Inositol may result in deficiency symptoms that culminate in high blood cholesterol, constipation, eczema, and hair loss.
Inositol is a messenger in our neurocommunication system that signals the release of serotoning and norepinephrine- these neurotransmitters depend on Inositol to function properly. Low levels of this nutrient may result in depression and some research has shown that increased levels of Inositol appear to be a promising treatment for depression, OCD and panick disorders including panic attacks.
Benefits of Inositol:
Suggested Use : 1/4 to 1 teaspoon daily or as directed by physician.
Dr. Ben Lynch, founder and Chief Medical Officer of Seeking Health, is a naturopathic physician. While majoring in Cell and Molecular biology at the University of Washington, Dr. Ben took a trip through the South Pacific and Southeast Asia that changed his outlook on traditional medicine, and his life.
During this trip, Dr. Ben hiked through the forests, mountains and coasts of Tasmania, worked a cattle ranch in the Outback of Australia, and volunteered with Mother Theresa in Calcutta. He lived in Fiji with a family having no electricity or plumbing, experienced the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India, worked a fruit orchard in New Zealand, and returned to America with an impression of a different form of medicine than he had ever experienced with his mainstream medical education.
This profound experience led Dr. Ben to Bastyr University, and he studied the Mind-Body Connection, Environmental Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Epigenetics.
Dr. Ben saw the huge need for people to obtain foundational nutrients, and Seeking Health was born. Without foundational nutrients, biochemical dysfunction occurs and causes symptoms. Doctor after doctor and person after person do not understand the absolute requirement for our bodies to have the tools to maintain function.
“If one supports their bodily systems, especially their digestion and mental health, with pure, highly absorbable, well-formulated nutrients, the ability to remain healthy and vital significantly increases. We want your foundation rock solid and we provide the tools to do so.”
-Dr. Ben Lynch, founder of Seeking Health

One of my favorite supplements ever and excellent for my mood disorder. I suffered from massive ptsd, ocd, depression, severe mood swings, my whole life. For some reason this product makes me feel balanced. I noticed a huge difference in my mood in just a couple of days. Helped me get my life force back. I also have fibro and fatigue and it helps.

Inositol does help many who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety. One should start low and work up in the amount taken. Starting with 1/2 scoop in a glass of water - taken in the morning - is a good starting point. See how you feel and increase to 1 scoop after a couple days if you feel you need more. Keep increasing until you get to about 18 grams - as maximum amount taken.
Inositol is not an anti-depressant - it is more anti-anxiety.
It helps balance neurotransmitters and it is quite safe.
In health,Dr Ben
