What is Inositol Hexaphosphate?

Inositol Hexaphosphate, also commonly referred to as IP6 or phytic acid, is a dietary phytochemical found in cereals, soy, legumes, and most fiber rich foods. [6] Supplemental inositol hexaphosphate is advantageous because the user can control the timing and amount being consumed. Bioavailability of inositol hexaphosphate is higher when consumed in solution (mixed with water) compared to food.
