Sensitol™ is a unique formulation comprised of two naturally occurring isomers of inositol - myo-inositol (MI) and D-chiro-inositol (DCI) - along with alpha lipoic acid, designed to support normal insulin function and cellular metabolism. Inositol occurs naturally as nine isomers in a variety of vegetable and animal foods as well as in the human body. The MI and DCI isomers have been recognized to be the most predominant and have important functions in human physiology, such as mediating normal cell signaling from insulin and from sex and thyroid hormones.
Made with GMO-free ingredients.
Sensitol™'s combination of myo-inositol, D-chiro-inositol and alpha lipoic acid is designed to modulate the metabolic pathways involved in insulin resistance (InsR). Inositols are not considered essential nutrients since they can be synthesized in the body from glucose. However, MI and DCI may be considered conditionally essential nutrients for conditions where dysglycemia and InsR play critical roles, and for which dietary inositol intake and endogenous production are not adequate, such as metabolic syndrome, gestational diabetes, type 2 diabetes and PCOS. Thus, MI and DCI supplementation with InsR may help bring insulin signaling and glucose metabolism closer to homeostasis. Alpha lipoic acid is included because of its role in helping to increase insulin sensitivity and its support of the conversion of glucose into energy.
