Inositol and Theanine

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Inositol is a modified sugar. The body can make some of it under ideal circumstances so it is not technically considered a vitamin.  Some people might not absorb it very well though or their bodies might not make enough.  Cells need inositol to function properly. Inositol is beneficial for treating panic attacks and also for thyroid problems such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis. 

Inositol is necessary for basic cellular processes such as the absorption of iodine, gene expression, and calcium balance. 

Here are some links on the benefits of Inositol:

And on Inositol along with Selenium.

Theanine is an amino acid found in mushrooms and green tea. It has a lot of anti-inflammatory properties. The cells in the intestine have transporters which will absorb amino acids or exchange one amino acid for another. Theanine boosts the absorption of glutamine (which is the main amino acid that cells in the intestine need to grow) and boosts tight junction proteins.

Also theanine interferes with a celiac disease process (I don't have access to the full paper but here are some parts of it and I attached a graph that I found.).

For me inositol and theanine supplementation seems to be extremely extremely effective. I used to have bad ibs symptoms from alcohol, dairy and corn grain and a number of other things.  These ingredients would also cause pain in my thyroid (the pain wasn't very strong but I could definitely feel it was inflamed) as well as other symptoms. Now I am not noticing any symptoms even after I introduce these foods back. I tried glutamine supplementation, collagen protein as well as taking all sorts of vitamins and eating a low inflammation diet.  The vitamins did seem to improve my mood some but didn't help with the the food sensitivities or the thyroid pain.

Wheat sensitive. Probably Celiac disease but it could be an allergic response. I get very strong anxiety and then autistic symptoms whenever I eat wheat. It is probably a form of encephalitis (swelling in the brain due to wheat) but I am not sure.  Things that I avoid: All grain, alcohol, eggs, dairy, processed food.

Ch88,

I like good pure research....because it lines out what is happening in our bodies....giving us clues to what is wrong with us....

I tried the Theanine....popular for those with depression....it did not help me....I will post the trace mineral/element research in the Celiac and Diabetes thread...which is helping my blood sugar issues.

If you are still having IBS problems try some Tryptophan....

It can help IBS....see this research on it...entitled  "Tryptophan: ‘essential’ for the pathogenesis of irritable bowel syndrome?"

I hope this is helpful but it is not medical advise.

Posterboy.
