What Is Pantothenic Acid
Pantothenic acid, also called vitamin B5, is a water-soluble vitamin involved in the Kreb’s cycle of energy production and is needed to make the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It is also essential in producing, transporting, and releasing energy from fats. Synthesis of cholesterol (needed to manufacture vitamin D and steroid hormones) depends on pantothenic acid. Pantothenic acid also activates the adrenal glands. Pantethine—a byproduct of pantothenic acid—has been reported to lower blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides.
Where is it found?
Liver, yeast, and salmon have high concentrations of pantothenic acid, but most other foods, including vegetables, dairy, eggs, grains, and meat, also provide some pantothenic acid.
Twinlab has had had one simple and over-riding objective for nearly 30 years. To bring you products that are based on the latest science, and are manufactured to the highest level pharmaceutical standards.
This is Twinlab's mission for everything that has their name on it: vitamins, minerals, sports nutrition products, special formulas and amino acids. Twinlab's herbs are sold under the Nature's Herbs brand, and their herbal teas under the Alvita brand, but the commitment and standards are the same.
Twinlab's leadership is reflected in the firsts they have brought to the market:
- The first complete line of amino acids
- The first complete line of fish and marine oils
- The most advanced and complete array of antioxidants
- All-capsule vitamin and mineral line well tolerated by allergic individuals
But Twinlab is not only motivated to be first, they are driven to be best. Twinlab insists on their own manufacturing (trust can't be transferred), which takes place in their state-of-the-art facility in American Fork, Utah.
All told, Twinlab produces more than 500 different products. Why so many? Because everyone has their own needs, yet everyone has the same goal: to live healthier, to achieve wellness, to derive the maximum quality of life each and every day. To the extent Twinlab helps you achieve this, they consider it a privilege.
