I got this for my elderly mother. She had a stroke and she lost her language skills. There are a lot of research studies and articles on the use of Inosine for repairing the brain after a stroke. I have not given my mom this supplement long enough to determine whether it is helping her in that area. I can only say that she has been well and in good spirits since she began this. At times she is especially lucid, and then she reverts to her usual state. I'll keep giving it to her and see. I am pleased that inosine is not very pricey, so this is an affordable experiment. Since I have not used it long enough to determine efficacy I gave it 5 stars to encourage others to try it. I also have experience with Source Naturals as a brand of high quality.
Potential benefits of inosine stem from its acting as a building block for DNA and RNA, helping healthy nerve branches grow from nerves damaged in the brain and spinal cord. It may also aid in the preservation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the main form of usable energy in your body.
This was recommended by my doctor due to my fatigue issues. I don't have any negative side effects which is good! I also note that I sleep better with this than without. Although I haven't used it for very long, presently I am pleased with the quality and effect of the supplement
