By providing the active form of pantothenic acid‚ Pure Encapsulations' Pantethine may have several health benefits. Pantothenic acid is a B complex vitamin (vitamin B5) commonly found in foods such as eggs‚ milk‚ legumes‚ certain meats‚ cereals‚ and some vegetables. When consumed via dietary sources‚ it may be more difficult for your body to absorb and process. Pantethine is easier to utilize‚ since it does not have to undergo several enzymatic processes before working.
Pantethine serves as a major component of coenzyme A (CoA)‚ which helps transport and metabolize fatty acids. An acetyl group derived from glucose molecules attaches to coenzyme A to promote the production of energy. This process is called the Krebs cycle‚ and it is what provides cellular energy in the form of ATP for respiration and other essential tasks. In addition‚ coenzyme A may promote the production of some adrenal steroids and hormones (including cortisone‚ which might decrease negative symptoms of stress)‚ bile (which promotes good digestion)‚ and hemoglobin.
The difference between pantothenic acid and pantethine also extends to how much they support CoA production; the latter is significantly more active. Coenzyme A may help support healthy triglyceride levels‚ phase II detoxification‚ fatty acid oxidation‚ carbohydrate metabolism‚ and more. While pantothenic acid also has its own benefits‚ a pantethine supplement may be better able to support the heart and overall cardiovascular system. Furthermore‚ it may stay in the body for longer periods of time‚ since it's not water-soluble.
Take two to four capsules daily‚ in divided doses with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 120-capsule bottle of Pantethine by Pure Encapsulations should last from two to four months.
