What is Pantethine?

Pantethine is a compound derived from pantothenic acid, also known as vitamin B5, which is considered the active form of the nutrient. While many foods contain pantothenic acid, such as legumes, whole grains, dairy products, Brewer’s yeast, avocados and organ meats, only trace amounts of its active derivative compound are found in foods. Since it is highly bioactive, absorbable and pre-converted, pantethine is regarded as an advanced, enhanced-potency form of B5 that supplies greater wellness benefits.**

This nutrient has gained most acclaim for its potential in the realm of cardiovascular health. Studies indicate that this compound appears to balance triglycerides and LDL or “bad” cholesterol while increasing the level of HDL or “good” cholesterol, thus helping to maintain overall cardiovascular wellness. While its exact mechanisms are unknown, the substance is thought to work by binding to and deactivating certain enzymes involved in cholesterol and triglyceride production. It is also believed to exert an antioxidant effect that may reduce lipid peroxidation, a process by which free radicals damage cholesterol into an oxidized form that is associated with clogged, hardened arteries. Additional research suggests this B5-related compound may promote healthy circulation by influencing platelet aggregation.**

Pantethine also promotes cellular energy production. It acts as a precursor in the formation of coenzyme A or coA, a compound that promotes metabolism of fats and carbohydrates while playing a key role in the energy-generating Krebs cycle. These energy-optimizing roles at the cellular level make the compound an important contributor to overall vitality. It has become a popular nutritional supplement for performance-oriented athletes and those with active lifestyles.**

Some early research suggests that this B5 derivative’s antioxidant action may have a protective effect on aging eyes. Further research suggest that it supports the immune system and encourages modulated inflammatory responses that may bring relief from seasonal allergies. In addition, the substance has been found to promote a healthy mood and enhance the body’s ability to adapt to stress. In particular, its support of the adrenal glands has led to its reputation as an “anti-stress” vitamin.**
