• Healthy lipoprotein balance
• Adrenal function
• Liver function
Pantethine, a biological metabolite of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), is a precursor to Coenzyme A, a critical factor in cellular energy production, Phase II detoxification, and the biosynthesis of numerous important orthomolecules (including sex and adrenal hormones and some neurotransmitters). Extensive research supports a role for Pantethine in supporting healthy lipoprotein balance.Pantethine is not to be confused with simple calcium pantothenate/pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). Rather, the making of Pantethine is the very reason the body needs B5 in the first place. That is, pantothenic acid’s whole purpose in the body is to serve as a raw material for the synthesis of Pantethine, which is the “business end” of the critical Coenzyme A (CoA). The real “work” done by CoA is accomplished by Pantethine as CoA’s active site. CoA, in turn, is used by the body in a wide variety of functions, including regulating cholesterol synthesis. Thus, optimal Pantethine levels are a key factor in maintaining optimal blood lipid balance.The key factor determining the body’s Pantethine levels is the conversion of pantothenic acid to Pantethine.The problem: many people can not turne enough pantothenic acid to Pantethine to ensure optimal health – in particular, to support healthy cholesterol balance.This can be at once the cause and the result of the metabolic disturbances associated with insulin resistance, the process through which the body’s cells stop responding to the hormonal command to take up blood sugar, leading to “Syndrome X” and non-insulin-dependent (“type-2”) diabetes. In such people, taking more pantothenic acid does not lead to the body making more Pantethine, by supplementing with Pantethine itself, directly the optimal Pantethine levels will be restored contributing to wide-ranging positive impact on health.
