Pantethine is a derivative of the Vitamin B-5. This highly absorbable and biologically active compound helps the body in two key ways.
Coenzyme A (CoA) is an essential cofactor for lipid levels. Pantethine is the precursor to the formation of the CoA. Studies have shown that regular doses of Pathethine lower elevated LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides while raising the HDL-cholesterol (or good cholesterol) in the blood. The other good news is that this supplement may hold off or prevent the need for statins according to one study.
Body Fat Distribution
Pathethine also supports proper cholesterol production and fat storage in the liver. This in turn helps promote the body to distribute body fat in the healthy manner.
