IP6 (Inositol hexaphosphate), more commonly known as phytic acid or phytate (the salt form), is a naturally-occurring compound. IP6 is found primarily in grains and legumes. The health benefits of a diet high in fibre seem to be due to the high levels of IP6 in the fibre. Purified IP6 offers several advantages over dietary IP-6. Its rapid absorption compared to dietary IP6 ensures much superior bio availability. Although IP6 gets all the attention, it is really the IP3 that is doing all the work. IP3 plays an important role in cells by helping them grow, mature, replicate and communicate with other cells. Cells that are low in IP3 can become out of control, dividing uncontrollably.
