Wray - Correct dosage for Inositol
I'm curious about Inositol. I know you've made this recommendation to me, as well as several times throughout this site, saying that it regulates blood sugars. However, I am unable to find anything through my searches to confirm this. Yes, it is supposed to help diabetics by preventing their blood sugars from skyrocketing. The fact that it "lowers blood sugars" is somewhat concerning for someone like me whose blood sugars have a history of being too low. Also, not much information is given as far as proper dosing. Your recommendation of 2,000 - 4,000 mg per day can be translated to mean many things. This would be my only complaint. I wish there was an entire page dedicated to not only how much we should take of each supplement, but when, once daily, two or three times divided throughout the day, before meals on an empty stomach or with food. Also, I'm finding many types of Inositol. Inositol with Choline, Inositol Nicotinate, D-Chiro Inositol. It can all be very confusing. Then of course if you try to search for proper dosage and protocol they say to consult your physician and follow their recommendation. Oh please. Most medical doctors will either stare at you blankly or convince you what you're doing is all wrong and try and prescribe Buspirone or something. So that's my long winded question. I just want to know how much, the best time of the day, how often (all at once) or divided throughout the day between meals or with food to get optimal results for anxiety without throwing my now balanced blood sugars back into hell.
