Calcium Pantothenate is a calcium salt form of pantohthenic acid. Pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5) is vital for normal physiological functions. Pantothenic acid is a precursor to form coenzyme-A (CoA), and is critical in the metabolism and synthesis of carbohydrate, proteins, and fats. It is thus a necessary factor for Kreb’s cycle of energy production. As one of B vitamins, B5 is also required for the production of steroids and neurotransmitter. The production of neurotransmitter acetylcholine needs B5. This vitamin is also important in the management of healthy cholesterol and triglyceride level. B5 is also widely used in hair care products and emollients. It is great in shampoo, toners, and lotions for moisturizing effect, to make hair easier to comb, to reduces hair splitting, and to improves the condition of damages hair. B5 deficiency is the pathogenesis of acne vulgaris [Leung LH. Pantothenic acid deficiency as the pathogenesis of acne vulgaris. Med Hypotheses. 1995 Jun; 44(6): 490-2]. Thus supplement B5 is effective for acne. Calcium d-Pantothenate is an often used supplement form of B5, because as a salt, it is more stable than pantothenic acid in the digestive tract allowing for better absorption.
