Scyllitol is a stereoisomer of inositol and a plant sugar alcohol found most abundantly in coconut palm trees, with potential amyloid plaque formation inhibitory activity. Following oral administration, scyllitol crosses the blood brain barrier and inhibits amyloid beta plaque formation in the brain through as of yet unknown mechanism(s). This may lead to reduced disease progression and improvement in cognitive function in patients with Alzheimer disease.
The inositols and their phosphates have been used in the development of metabolically stable insulin mediators, inhibitors, and modulators of important metabolic functions such as glycolysis. Inositols are stable to degradative enzymes in vivo because they lack a hydrolytically labile glycosidic linkage.
