    IP6 is also known as phytic acid.

    no, not quite. It is a phosphate of inositol. As I understand it people (perhaps not pwme/cfs) have enzymes that can break down inositol with up to 5 phosphate groups but not IP6 inositol with 6 phosphate groups.

    It is used to sequester minerals in plant seeds and something that people into Weston A Price or Paleo are concerned about. which is how I first became aware of it.

    It is not important to the article I just am much more aware of people calling it phytic acid, so I mentioned it. It can qet quite confusing when there are many names for the one compound.
