How does Inosine work?

There is information that suggests inosine might help nerve branches (axons) grow from healthy nerves to injured nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. If this is true, inosine might be useful in treating spinal cord injuries, but more research in people is needed to be sure.

Are there safety concerns?

It is not known if inosine is safe or what the possible side effects might be.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of inosine during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Gout: Taking inosine might make gout worse.

Dosing considerations for Inosine.

The appropriate dose of inosine depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for inosine. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
