Pantothenic acid is an important water-soluble B vitamin consisting of an amide of pantoic acid and beta alanine. Essential to all life forms, pantothenic acid is related to the synthesis of the enzymatic cofactor acetyl-CoA, and therefore crucial to metabolic activity in the human body. In this way, pantothenic acid plays an key role in the production of energy, especially in the catabolism of fatty acids.
Pantothenic acid (also known as vitamin B5) comes in several forms, such as the provitamin, pantothenol, as well as pantothenate, of which only the 'D' isomer is biologically active. PureBulk's Vitamin B5 is combined with the essential element calcium to form calcium D-pantothenate, a commonly used supplemental form of this vitamin. It is more stable than free pantothenic acid.
