Studies have shown that Vitamins B6, folic acid, pantothenic acid and PABA have a close working association with inositol.

Inositol is effective in promoting the bodys production of lecithin. Fats are moved from the liver to cells with the aid of lecithin and inositol therefore aids in the metabolism of fats and helps to reduce blood cholesterol. 50 vegetable capsules.
