Why not use just B5, why use pantothenic acid and pantethine?
Pantethine is the coenzyme form of pantothenic acid. It has benefits that pantothenic acid alone does not, such as lowering of triglycerides and lipid levels as well as lowering bad cholesterol while raising good cholesterol. However, pantothenic acid also works to reduce inflammation, metabolize sebum, increase energy production, establish effective metabolism, and increase cellular detoxification. For these reasons it is obvious why both ingredients have been added.
Also, as explained within the "Why not B5 alone?" link, pantethine alone will not ensure a sufficient supply of Coenzyme-A within the body. There are other nutrients needed to guarantee proper production of utilization of Coenzyme-A. B5, supplied either as pantethine or pantothenic acid, is only one piece of the puzzle.
Pantothenic Acid is the only form of Vitamin B5, proven in medical studies, to effectively fight acne breakouts. We've created a potent blend using pure concentrations of both Pantothenic Acid and Pantethine to maximize its acne fighting power.
