The next question is what IP6 should I use?
From a previous book I read, I was directed to IP6 Cell Forte by Nature’s Way and actually used the product.
Continuing my research, I came across a second version of IP6 with Inositol which was referenced in a second piece of information. This made me wonder which was the one developed and recommend by Dr. Shamsuddin. Was I originally misled from my initial research or was there a reason for this other brand popping up in my research.
The new product on the radar contains “Third Party Tested” in the label which was not listed on my original source. I decided to write to the new company about their product “IP6 Gold” for any research they had on their product. I was quite impressed by the response.
The response I received was from Mr. Tom Sokoloff, President of IP-6 International, Inc. providing the history of his first meeting with Dr. Shamsuddin. Mr. Sokoloff met Dr Shamsuddin met in March of 1998 during one of the first lectures on IP6 & Inositol.
Mr. Sokoloff said.
There are no details as to why Dr. Shamsuddin dropped his endorsement of Cell Forte. Mr. Sokoloff continued:
There is currently a pilot study underway in Croatia utilizing IP-6 International, Inc’s, IP6 Gold, in patients with periodontal disorder.
You may not know this, but Osteoblasts and Osteoclasts work on bone development. How they work is that when a bone is broken, the Osteoclasts remove the dead portions of the break like a cleanup detail. Then the Osteoblasts come along and create new bone.
Orthopedic medicine provides shots to those with Osteoporosis. The shot stops the cleanup group from removing the dead bone thereby allowing the Osteoblasts to build more bone. So IP6 Gold can have great benefits in this area which we will discuss in a separate post.
Many thanks to Mr Tom Sokoloff for taking the time to respond and to fill in the blanks that are not apparent within the research. I have switched to IP6 Gold (powder version) and feel more confident now than ever over its benefits.
Stay tuned for additional posts during my journey and related topics about this great vitamin being researched.
