Inositols are considered to be Essential Vitamins that are found highly in whole grain, citrus fruits, and vegetable content, in the form of Myo-Inositol . The structure of Inositol contains 9 stereoisomers all of which are equatorial except Myo-Inositol which is structurally different by a lone axial hydroxyl group . Myo-Inositol is similar to glucose sharing the same mechanism to cellular signaling and is known to be referred to as a B-vitamin, due to the nutritional factors it holds in the human body and diet .
