It’s used in treatment for irregular heartbeats mainly. Inositol, a carbocyclic sugar, is essential for cell signaling and neurotransmitter production. It’s also used in explosives and solid rocket propellants. Other uses of these compounds are dietary supplements, medications etc., by industries and pharmaceutical companies.
