Is anyone taking high dosage Inositol and IP6 specifically as an antiviral treatment? I am looking into AKT1 inhibitors for the treatment of PIV5/MLV viruses and inositol came up as a relatively side-effect free supplement.

Hi GG, remedial action suggested is around 8gm/day for cancer, which is a lot, but it is very cheap, so I guess anywhere up to 8gms. I am specifically curious about its action on PIV5, which I know I have got, but it also may be restrictive of MLVs. I would also like to know about any known side-effects.
