Jarrow Formulas Inositol powder is readily absorbed and used to produce the active inositides as necessary. The various forms of inositol (phosphatidylinositol and inositides such as IP3) are active in cell-to-cell communication, including the transmission of nerve impulses.
Tissues that are affected include the brain, liver and muscles (myo-inositol). Inositol is an indirect source of glucose and glucoronic acid, which are essential to liver detoxification.
Inositol supports liver function and cellular detoxification

How to reduce stress with ASMROur brain is programmed to stress us. It does that a lot and on just about any subject. Like a lot of behavioral reactions, stress used to be and still is a survival mechanism that our brain used in order to inject alertness when needed. It’s there so we could harness internal resources and spring into action in a matter of seconds when hunted or hunting.
Fortunately for us, we rarely need to spring into action nowadays to avoid a prowling lion. Today, stress is not helpful and is often counter-productive. When stressed, most of us lose focus and are immersed in unpleasant feelings.
In the past, we needed all that “potential energy” when we faced fight or flight situations. It probably saved our lives more than once. Today, this energy still exists in each of us in certain situations; if it is not discharged via some sort of conduit (either physical or of a more neural nature), it slows us down.
That’s why we need to get creative in the way we release stress. We don’t have time to go on a vacation every week; often we even can’t step away from the almighty computer, tablet, or cell phone.
The power of positive thinking
Why is stress so hard on the body?When we are stressed, our bodies produce higher levels of cortisol, a hormone that shuts down the thinking center of our brains and activates conflict aversion and protection behaviors. We become more reactive and sensitive. We often perceive even greater judgment and negativity than actually exists. And these effects can last for 26 hours or more, imprinting the interaction on our memories and magnifying the impact it has on our future behavior. Cortisol can be self-inforcing, the more we think about a stressful event, the bigger and longer the impact.
Positive comments produce a chemical reaction too. They spur the production of oxytocin, a feel-good hormone that elevates our ability to communicate, collaborate and trust others by activating networks in our prefrontal cortex. But oxytocin metabolizes more quickly than cortisol, so its effects are less dramatic and long-lasting.
In order to counterbalance the effect of stress, a much higher amount of positive events must happen, which in the real world, is not so easy to achieve.
Another factor which makes it harder to achieve happiness, is that every individual has a 'happiness set point'.
A happiness set point is the point on a continuum of happiness with which we are born.
In early research it was concluded that positive events (such as winning the lottery) and negative events (such as an accident) change our happiness levels for a short period of time, until after a while, we return to the baseline, our happiness set point.
Lately though it has been shown that we *can* change our setpoint. This however, is not very easy and requires hard work!
So let's look at the factors that can help influence happiness!
Fears about contamination of eggs or supplements
In the past week of early June, a lot of fear was placed in the heart of the public of both Dutch, German and French customers, when officials from the National Food Safety Board announced eggs had to be destroyed due to contamination with a banned substance, called fipronyl.
The reason this happened, is that fipronyl is an amazingly effective insecticide that was perfectly legal for use in stables where egg laying poultry live. This insecticide was however banned from January 1 onwards for use on animals in the food chain, with the main reason behind the ban being its toxicity to bees.
What are brain waves?While reading just a single sentence, you will have experienced thousands of brain waves. These waves of electricity flow around our brains every second of the day, allowing neurons to communicate while we walk, talk, think and feel.
OCD?! Obsessive behaviourWhomever is actively dieting and counting calories for a prolonged period of time, may have been teased by friends of having OCD. Is counting calories obsessive behaviour?
For an obese person, it is is easier to simply cut calories by cutting entire food groups such as wheat, foregoing desserts, eat from smaller plates or fast intermittently.
For someone at a normal weight trying to get very lean it makes perfect sense to count calories as this requires far more precision.
