The difference is Pantothenic Acid is composed of a single molecule, whereas Pantethine consists of two Pantothenic acid molecules linked by a cysteamine bridging group. When ingested, Pantethine is hydrolyzed into cysteamine and Pantothenic Acid. Cysteamine plays a significant role in supporting a healthy metabolism of cholesterol and triglycerides. Subsequently, Pantethine has beneficial cardiovascular properties, and also may be helpful with similar applications like Pantothenic Acid.
