IP-6 and Inositol (Lipotropic Factor) powder or capsules provide valuable health benefits by increasing the levels of phosphates in your cells in order to modulate and support immune system health, by increasing its natural killer (NK) cell activity by up to 58%, which can protect cells from harmful free radicals. IP-6 (Inositol hexaphosphate) can be found naturally in some high-fibre foods such the hull or bran of rice, or legumes, or in some seeds, but is often missing from our diet because it has been processed or milled out of them.
As a natural antioxidant, IP-6 appears to have great promise for cancer prevention and therapy, including as an adjunct to chemotherapy. Inositol also has many other functions in the body, including as a lipotropic factor, which can prevent excess fat and cholesterol accumulating in the liver.
