High Quality Form of Vitamin B5
Pantethine is a premier energy boosting and metabolic support nutrient. It is a derivative of vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid). This derivative (pantetheine) is double bonded with sulfur to form the dietary supplement ingredient, pantethine. The sulfur bond enables pantethine to have special biological activity that vitamin B5 does not have.*
Helps Raise Co-Enzyme A (Coa) Levels
Pantethine is the immediate precursor to Co-Enzyme A (CoA).* Supplemental pantethine raises the levels of CoA.* CoA is a pivotal nutrient in at least 70 metabolic pathways, including those involved with the healthy metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and amino acids.* CoA is required for cell engines (mitochondria) to produce energy properly.* CoA helps synthesize acetylcholine, an important compound for nerve function and memory. * It supports Phase II detoxification and the enzyme aldehyde dehydrogenase that helps clear alcohol and related derivatives.* And it helps synthesize glyconutrients like N-Acetyl-Glucosamine, needed for healthy joints and the lining of the GI tract.*
While pantethine supports many aspects of human nutrition, it has become a very popular nutrient for cardiovascular support.* It not only supports the healthy metabolism of cholesterol and triglycerides, it also promotes healthy platelet cell membranes.*
The dose of pantethine used in most human studies is 900 mg per day, though some have been done with 600 mg. Each capsule of our pantethine product contains 300 mg, thus two to three capsules per day reach the 600 mg – 900 mg range. Our Stress Helper® product contains 150 mg of pantethine per capsule.
Thus, a person seeking comprehensive cardiovascular support and weight management support could take 2 LeptiCardio Packs™ (providing 600 mg pantethine) and 2 Leptin Control Packs™ (providing 300 mg pantethine), which would provide 900 mg of pantethine along with many other synergistic nutrients. These packs would be divided between meals or one pack could be taken in the middle of the afternoon to help support energy.* We use only the finest quality pantethine, produced in Japan under strict quality control for over 35 years.
Cholesterol is a normally produced substance that needs to be moved naturally in metabolic processes in order to sustain survival. If cholesterol particles are thought of as the box cars in a train, then pantethine is the engine – providing energy to move cholesterol in normal metabolism.* In essence, when combined with a proper diet and exercise, pantethine helps restore "energetic fitness" to the natural metabolism of cholesterol.* Pantethine directly supports the normal formation of HDL cholesterol (helps make Apo A-I and Apo A-II that are needed to form HDL).* Pantethine also promotes the healthy function the enzyme called HMG CoA reductase, an important enzyme in the normal regulation of cholesterol.*
Triglycerides are the natural way the body packages energy for storage. Stored body fat is composed of triglycerides and there are triglycerides in the blood that are either on their way to storage or available as a fuel source to sustain energy and metabolism. One goal of weight management is to create a favorable metabolic environment where triglycerides are broken down to be used as fuel, which is why proper diet and exercise are so important. Pantethine has been shown to support the liver's metabolism of fatty acids, thereby assisting natural triglyceride metabolism.* Pantethine, in conjunction with a proper diet and exercise, is an excellent weight management nutrient.*
Red blood cells and platelets function best when cell membranes have the right balance of fatty acids in the membranes. This helps them to move more naturally in circulation with less resistance and enables them to perform normal functions more effectively. Pantethine has been shown to promote the healthy formation of blood cell membranes, including the incorporation of the very important long chain omega 3 oils like DHA into the structure of the cell membranes.*
