What Is It?
IP6 is inositol hexaphosphate, also known as phytate. IP6 is a component of most cereal grains and seeds, occurring in conjunction with plant fiber. IP6 absorption from food sources is not always good because the IP6 is tightly bound to elements within the fiber. IP6 is a precursor of myo-inositol and is responsible for storing more than 80 percent of the total phosphate content in cereals and legumes.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: IP6 is most commonly known to help chelate heavy metals and free iron and calcium ions. Animal studies have also suggested that phytic acid can reduce the formation of kidney stones.
Secondary Uses: Exciting in vitro and animal studies suggest that IP6 supports normal cell growth, differentiation and behaviour. Some studies suggest that IP6 makes abnormal cells behave like normal cells. Human studies have shown that IP6 helps boosts immune cell activity and reduce other negative side effects of chemotherapy.
Who Should Take It?
Those who are concerned with abnormal cellular growth, who have an excess of heavy metals in their body or experience kidney stones may benefit from taking Phyto C. IP6 may be combined with high doses of inositol for increased effectiveness.
Take 1 capsule three times a day on an empty stomach or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
