Inositol hexaphosphate (IP6), also known as phytic acid, is a natural antioxidant component of fiber-rich foods such as whole grains and legumes and is found in almost every cell of the body. Related to the B vitamin inositol, IP6 differs by the presence of six phosphate groups, influencing various cellular mechanisms. In studies, IP6 promotes healthy cell metabolism and maintains proper enzyme activity in cells. The unique conformation of IP6 also gives it the specific ability to modulate hydroxyl radical formation, supporting natural defense mechanisms. Pure Encapsulations IP6 is a purified brown rice extract, providing highly-charged antioxidant and cellular function support shown to nutritionally promote prostate, breast, colon and liver cell health.
