What is D-Chiro-Inositol?

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 fat for later. As the sugar level goes down, the insulin level goes down as well. Insulin doesn't communicate directly with the cells, however. It communicates through a secondary messenger made out of DCI.

Another important thing that happens to women when there is insulin in your blood: the ovaries release testosterone in response to the insulin. This is natural. As the sugar is disposed of, the insulin level goes down and the ovaries stop releasing testosterone.

DCI is not abundant in diet. It is scarce in foods, so your body must make it from myo-inositol, which is abundant in many foods. But, the transformation is a complicated process with many steps that some people are not able to do very well. As a result, they don't have enough DCI and the sugar doesn't get disposed of quickly.

If you don't have enough DCI, the insulin level stays high, which means that the ovaries keep producing testosterone. This high level of testosterone is the origin of many of the signs and symptoms of PCOS—anovulation (not ovulating), irregular or absent periods, ovarian cysts, unwanted body hair, hair loss, belly fat, acne, infertility, etc.
Supports insulin function and glucose regulation*

Derived from carob pods, D-Chiro-Inositol is recommended to support normal insulin function and blood sugar metabolism.*

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.*
