D-chiro-inositol (DCI) is an optically active one of the nine isomers of inositol. In recent years, it has been found that D-chiral inositol (DCI) not only has inositol promoting liver lipid metabolism, but also has insulin sensitization, lowering blood sugar, and improving ovulation in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
D-Chiro Inositol is a specific B-vitamin that helps to improve the health of women with Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). For most women who are suffering from PCOS, Insulin Resistance is the main problem. The body has become less sensitive for sugar entering the body.
Normally, the body will produce enough to DCI out of ordinary Inositol (Myo Inositol), which is present in a regular diet. DCI is the substance in the body which enables the cells in your body to recognize the presence of sugar in your blood. If there is not enough DCI in the body, the body gets confused and the recognition of the Insulin hormone no longer will function as it should. This is also called “Insulin Resistance”. The body will continue producing excessive amounts of Insulin, while the cells do not recognize its presence anymore. The presence of too much Insulin in the blood has a disturbing effect on the other hormones in your body (read also the explanation of PCOS).
