Inositol is a nutrient that's considered a member of the B-vitamin family.  It is found in cell membrane structures and is important for metabolism of fat and cholesterol, including removal of fat from the liver. High concentrations of inositol are required for the body to function effectively. When the levels are extremely low, it may create severe detrimental effects on the body such as hair loss, anxiety and depressions, diabetic changes, high blood cholesterol levels, and probably increased risk of getting cardiovascular diseases, so supplementing with Inositol can help treat a wide variety of health conditions.

Inositol helps maintain the integrity of the cellular membranes and is important for the proper functioning of the brain and nervous system.

Metabolic syndrome, a group of conditions that increases the risk of diabetes, stroke, and heart disease.
