For those of you wondering, Inositol is a nutrient that's considered a member of the B-Vitamin family. It is found in cell membrane structures and is important for metabolism of fat and cholesterol, including removal of fat from the liver. It's readily absorbed and used to produce the active inositides as necessary. The various forms of inositol (phosphatidylinositol and inositides such as IP3) are active in cell-to-cell communication, including the transmission of nerve impulses. Tissues that are affected include the brain, liver and muscles (myo-inositol). Inositol is an indirect source of glucoronic acid, which is essential to liver detoxification. Inositol is derived from rice bran.
However, the amounts of all additional ingredients are very minimal in energy drinks.
