NOW Foods Pantethine is our best-selling pantethine supplement. The pantethine form of vitamin B5 is an overlooked cholesterol-support nutrient, despite studies that show it can lower total and LDL cholesterol, lower triglycerides and raise beneficial HDL. Like any cholesterol-support, it doesn't work for everyone, but given its low cost and safety, pantethine is definitely worth trying for those who wish to explore all the natural cholesterol-support options available. Most people can get good results by systemically trying the many natural approaches like pantethine, niacin, fish oil and red yeast rice. Regular cholesterol tests under a doctor's supervision are necessary to evaluate the effective of pantethine or any other approach to cholesterol management. For best results, use the higher end of the dose range by taking 2 or 3 softgels daily.
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.
