Uses For Pantothenic Acid
Nutrient Metabolism and Organ Function: Pantothenic acid is a precursor of coenzyme A (CoA), an important cofactor and acyl group carrier in cells. One of the main functions for CoA is the formation of acetyl-CoA, vital for cellular respiration and the metabolism of carbohydrates and fatty acids through the Kreb’s cycle. In the first step of the cycle, acetyl CoA condenses with oxaloacetate to yield citrate and succinyl-CoA providing energy for GDP phosphorylation. Distribution studies indicate that tissues with the highest retention of pantothenic acid are the kidneys, pituitary gland, heart, muscle, liver and adrenal glands and optimal levels help promote healthy adrenal function and cardiovascular health. Additionally, pantothenic acid is required for the synthesis of fatty acids and membrane phospholipids, the amino acids leucine, arginine and methionine, and isoprenoid derivatives, including cholesterol, steroid hormones, vitamin A and vitamin D.*
