    D-Chiro-Inositol - 60 Capsules



    Klaire Labs D-Chiro-Inositol

    Supports Insulin Function and Glucose Regulation

    D-chiro-inositol has been studied for its role in supporting healthy insulin and glucose metabolism, maintaining normal lipid profiles, and promoting healthy cardiovascular and ovarian function.

    This stereoisomer of inositol is a critical second messenger mediating cellular responses to insulin. Embedded in cell membranes, D-chiro-inositol is part of a glycosyl phosphatidylinositol complex that is hydrolyzed into two bioactive molecules upon exposure to insulin. These molecules regulate glucose disposal by activating pathways in which glucose is either converted to glycogen for storage or oxidatively metabolized to produce energy. Studies show D-chiro-inositol is involved in proper insulin and glucose metabolism and may have a role in maintaining normal lipid profiles, cardiovascular function, and ovarian function. It may also help regulate inflammatory stress and modulate serotonin activity. Derived from carob pods, D-Chiro-Inositol is recommended to support normal insulin function and blood sugar metabolism.

    More Info.

    D-chiro-inositol is a naturally occurring isomer of inositol. Derived from carob pods, D-chiro-inositol acts as a critical second messenger, mediating cellular responses to insulin. Studies demonstrate this compound plays a role in supporting ovarian and menstrual function, healthy glucose and insulin metabolism, lipid metabolism, and cardiovascular function. It may also help regulate inflammation metabolism and modulate serotonin activity.

    Product Features:

    • D-chiro-inositol is part of a glycosyl phosphatidylinositol complex embedded in cell membranes that directs the activity of insulin inside the cell. Myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol are intracellularly incorporated into inositol phosphoglycans (IPGs), which are second messengers of insulin, and some actions of insulin are mediated by these IPG mediators.
    • In the ovary, D-chiro-inositol is involved in insulin-mediated androgen synthesis, and exists in balance with myo-inositol. Imbalance of ovarian myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol concentrations can adversely affect Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) signaling. Several studies have emphasized the pivotal role of inositols in improving oocyte quality. A number of studies have suggested that insulin pathway issues could relate to the IPG second messenger system. D-chiro-inositol supplementation has been shown to replenish stores of the mediator and improve insulin sensitivity in women.
    • In the body, D-chiro-inositol is synthetized from Myo-inositol through the epimerase enzyme, which in turn is stimulated by insulin. While D-chiro-inositol is present in some foods, the amount and form may not be sufficient to meet the increased physiological demands in some individuals. Studies show that supplemental D-chiro-inositol positively benefits insulin function and glucose regulation.
