Pantethine is a dietary supplement that is related to vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid).
Pantethine is used for supporting heart health, boosting the activity of the immune system, and supporting gastrointestinal health, as well as aiding with athletic performance.
It is vital for dozens of enzymatic reactions that require Coenzyme A, including those involved with processing fats and carbohydrates. It helps the cells’ tiny energy factories, the mitochondria, and turn fatty acids into energy to help improve energy production in every cell of the body. It also supports healthy adrenal cortex function and hormone synthesis, particularly during times of stress, which is why some people refer to it as the “anti-stress” B vitamin.
