Pure Encapsulations Pantethine
offers support for the heart and metabolism. Pantethine serves as a major component of coenzyme A (CoA) which helps transport and metabolize fatty acids. An acetyl group derived from glucose molecules attaches to coenzyme A to promote the production of energy. This process is called the Krebs cycle and it is what provides cellular energy in the form of ATP for respiration and other essential tasks. In addition coenzyme A may promote the production of some adrenal steroids and hormones (including cortisone which might decrease negative symptoms of stress) bile (which promotes good digestion) and hemoglobin. The difference between pantothenic acid and pantethine also extends to how much they support CoA production; the latter is significantly more active. Coenzyme A may help support healthy triglyceride levels phase II detoxification fatty acid oxidation carbohydrate metabolism and more. While pantothenic acid also has its own benefits a pantethine supplement may be better able to support the heart and overall cardiovascular system. Furthermore it may stay in the body for longer periods of time since its not water-soluble. Recommended use:
2 capsules, 1-2 times daily meals, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
- Supports healthy lipid metabolism*

Pantethine supports healthy utilization and metabolism of various lipids.*
Lipid metabolism support* Pantethine is the active form of the B vitamin pantothenic acid and is a major component of coenzyme A, or CoA. In cells, CoA is essential for fatty acid transport and fatty acid metabolism. Several human studies demonstrate the ability of pantethine to maintain healthy utilization and metabolism of various lipids, promoting healthy cardiovascular function.* Pantethine supports healthy lipid metabolism.*
