Abstract

Identified almost 60 years ago, pantothenic acid is an essential vitamin, which serves as the metabolic precursor for coenzyme A. In the form of coenzyme A and as a component of acyl carrier protein, pantothenic acid is a participant in a myriad of metabolic reactions involving lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates. Though essential, pantothenic acid deficiency in humans is rare owing to its ubiquitous distribution in foods of both animal and plant origin. Pantothenic acid supplementation may have some efficacy, but further investigation into various health claims is necessary before any specific recommendations can be given.
