Bluebonnet's Flush-Free Niacin is available in easy-to-swallow vegetable capsules for maximum assimilation and absorption. Inositol is often associated with vitamin B complex but is actually considered a B vitamin derivative that serves as an important component of phospholipids. Inositol is converted to phosphatidylinositol, a phospholipid that is important for the maintenance of cellular membranes, metabolism and growth.
Much of the inositol in body cells occurs in phosphorylated forms, such as inositol triphosphate (IP3), which is found in the cell cytosol. IP3, when incorporated into the phospholipids located at the cell membrane, has been shown to effectively stimulate calcium ions and provide potent cellular support and protection.
B vitamins primarily serve as coenzymes or parts of coenzymes. Coenzymes are catalysts. They activate enzymes, speeding up reactions in the body. As a result, B vitamins are involved in a wide variety of functions, including the metabolism of protein, carbohydrate and fat; and the synthesis of neurotransmitters, betaine, RNA/DNA, red blood cells, antioxidants, and amino acids involved in the reduction of homocysteine levels.
As a dietary supplement, take one capsule daily, preferably with a meal or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
