Thorne Research, Pantethine 60 Vegetarian Capsules


Availability: Out of stock


Quick Overview

    Product Description

    Pantethine is the stable, metabolically active form of pantothenic acid, or vitamin B5. Pantethine is a vital component of coenzyme A (CoA), a cofactor for dozens of enzymatic reactions, including those involved with fatty acid oxidation and carbohydrate metabolism. Clinical trials suggest that, because its biochemical configuration is closer to CoA than pantothenic acid, pantethine may have more clinical benefit in conditions where pantothenic acid has not been effective. Pantethine appears to augment fatty acid oxidation by activation of coenzyme A, promotion of carnitine
    transport of fatty acids into the mitochondria, and subsequent intramitochondrial fatty acid oxidation.

    Consequently, pantethine supplementation has been found to lower total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, and apolipoprotein B, which if high, are all risk factors for cardiovascular disease. In addition, increases in beneficial HDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein A have been noted in
    association with pantethine supplementation. Pantethine has also been found to decrease platelet aggregation in people with diabetes.

    Pantethine is also considered the “antistress” vitamin because it supports healthy adrenal cortex function and hormone synthesis, particularly during times of stress. Pantothenic acid deficiency can result in adrenal atrophy, which is characterized by increased fatigue, headaches, sleep disturbances, nausea, and abdominal discomfort.
