Pantethine is a special co-enzyme form of vitamin B5. In essence, it helps to energetically transport fatty substances like triglycerides and cholesterol so that they can be hauled into metabolic action. Researchers at the Princeton Longevity Center have demonstrated in a controlled study that 600 mg to 900 mg of pantethine per day, combined with a healthy diet, lowers cholesterol better than diet alone.
A number of foreign studies back in the 1980s demonstrated the ability of pantethine to lower cholesterol and triglycerides, even in type 2 diabetic patients. These studies occurred during the rise of statins, and were never repeated in the United States. Unlike statins, pantethine is a highly energetic substance that supports adrenal health, mood, nerve function, and improved aerobic capacity. While statins are busy crippling the human genome under a fraudulent promise of improved longevity, pantethine is again proven to be a true cardio-friendly nutrient.
