Pantesin for healthy blood lipid support
Pantesin® is a high-quality pharmaceutical-grade form of Pantethine (an active form of Vitamin B5). Pantethine forms the reactive component of Coenzyme A (CoA) and the acyl-carrier protein (ACP). CoA and ACP are extensively involved in carbohydrate, lipid and amino acid metabolism. In addition to possessing the metabolic activity of pantothenic acid, Pantethine helps to support healthy serum lipid levels.* Pantethine is also important for healthy cardiovascular function through its antioxidant activity.*
