Pantethine is a highly absorbable and biologically active form of pantothenic acid (Vitamin B-5). Pantethine forms the reactive component of Coenzyme A (CoA) and the acyl-carrier protein (ACP). CoA and ACP are extensively involved in carbohydrate, lipid and amino acid metabolism. In addition to possessing the metabolic activity of pantothenic acid, Pantethine helps to support healthy serum lipid levels. Pantethine is also important for healthy cardiovascular function through its antioxidant activity.
As our lifestyles get busier, our need for enhanced nutrition increases with every multi-tasking day. This highly absorbable and biologically active form of pantothenic acid (Vitamin B-5) is fundamental in the metabolism of HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol), and plays a key role in the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids and amino acids. As an antioxidant, pantethine is essential to cardiovascular function and also helps support healthy serum lipid levels. NOW Pantethine has become highly regarded as an important cardiovascular safeguard and a welcome addition to any heart-healthy lifestyle.
Pantethine is a combination of the vitamin pantothenic acid and the low-molecular-weight aminothiol cysteamine. Pantethine is the biologically active form of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5).
Pantethine lowers cholesterol and other lipid levels. Research indicates that pantethine supplements are helpful in reducing total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglyceride levels while at the same time raising the good HDL cholesterol in the body. High levels of LDL (low-density lipoprotein) - the "bad cholesterol" - is a major contributing factor of heart disease. The cholesterol forms plaque in the heart's blood vessels, which restricts or blocks the supply of blood to the heart, and causes a condition called atherosclerosis, which is a buildup of fatty substances in the inner layers of the arteries.
Pantethine may be a good cholesterol-lowering alternative for people with diabetes, who cannot take niacin due to the potential side effects on blood sugar regulation.
