Inositol was falsely classified as a type of vitamin B( B8) as this nutrient can be synthesised in the body. It is best described to be like a sugar that does not act like a sugar.

In most people it can be synthesised by your own body yet this depends on genetics, your health and diet.

Inositol is found in high concentrations in the brain where it facilitates communication between the billions of brain cells. All major neurotransmitters — dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, acetylcholine, and GABA — rely on inositol to relay messages. Neurotransmitters can’t do their jobs when there’s no inositol.
