Why Is D-Chiro-Inositol Important?
D-Chiro-Inositol (DCI), a sugar alcohol complex, helps regulate glucose levels in the body. Glucose is used by the body for energy or it is converted into other useful compounds. When insulin is high, DCI signals cells to burn or store glucose as fat. Once DCI has sufficiently affected the cells, the body reduces its insulin levels.
How Do Low Levels of DCI Affect Health?
D-Chiro-Inositol is designed to help regulate insulin response. If the body cannot produce a sufficient amount of DCI, then the ability to respond to fluctuations in insulin will diminish. DCI also works as a messenger for serotonin and dopamine. Both are neurotransmitters the central nervous system uses to signal positive moods. Individuals with lowered levels of DCI may feel that their mood is impacted. DCI is also helpful in
boosting autophagy which is an essential part of clearing the debris from cells and provide better cellular performance.
Boost Your D-Chiro-Inositol Levels Today!
DCI is naturally available from certain foods, but an unbalanced diet due to a hectic schedule or environmental factors can decrease intake needed for optimal performance. Boost your D-Chiro-Inositol levels by ordering our exclusive DCI 500 supplement formula today!
Autophagy and Glucose Transport
A decrease in autophagy can affect the efficiency of glucose transport into the cell. If there is a decrease of cellular energy available, parts of the body including the brain, the immune and muscular systems, as well as hormone producing organs may be affected.*
