One of the many troubling aspects of the 40:1 combination products is the price. The myo in products like Ovasitol™ costs the manufacturers a few dollars per pound (and that is being generous — $1/kilogram is an easy deal to find if you are buying large quantities). DCI, on the other hand, is expensive. Why the difference? Myo-inositol is a remnant product — it exists in such copious quantities in nature that it can be extracted from ...

Introduction This article follows up on another piece I wrote concerning myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol therapies for PCOS. That piece does a good job of comparing those two forms of inositol. PCOS women looking for answers about which form of inositol is right for them have recently discovered a new wrinkle—products that offer myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol combined in a 40:1 ratio. I have had a number of questions from PCOS women ...

DCI is what is known as a secondary messenger in the insulin signaling process and is considered an insulin sensitizer. When you eat food, sugar is extracted and goes into your blood. Your pancreas releases insulin in response to the sugar. The insulin tells the cells of your body to either burn the sugar for energy or to store it as ...

  Cruising the Internet for Information on PCOS   One of the things I enjoy most about working with the PCOS community is speaking to the many women with PCOS who are intelligent, hard-working investigators—and they have to be. Too many times I’ve heard the familiar tale about the day a woman was diagnosed with PCOS. Her doctor sat her down and said, “You have PCOS. Here is a prescription for Metformin and birth control. See ...

D-chiro-inositol is a complex carbohydrate and a member of the inositol family of compounds. Two other important members of the inositol family are myo-inositol and pinitol, which are discussed in separate articles. We usually call it DCI for short, but the official IUPAC name is: cis-1,2,4-trans-3,5,6-Cyclohexanehexol. Let’s stick with DCI. Unlike a sugar (which is a specific kind of carbohydrate, even though the words are often used ...

Here is a question we answer quite a bit: "Does caffeine kill ᴅ-chiro-inositol?" The short answer is: no—caffeine does not kill, interfere with, or otherwise affect ᴅ-chiro-inositol. The term inositol is often used loosely when discussing myo-inositol, pinitol, etc, and this leads to some confusion. The only studies about inositol and caffeine are very specific to the effects of caffeine on the function of myo-inositol in the brain. ...
