Transdermal pantethine -- interesting effects

Posted by Hugh on December 7, 2017, at 14:03:02

I've taken pantethine and/or pantothenic acid from time to time over the years, and haven't ever noticed any benefit. Recently, I decided to try taking pantethine transdermally. I mixed some powder from a pantethine capsule with a little dab of body lotion, and rubbed it onto my skin. This had a far more pronounced effect on me than taking it orally. I felt a warm glow in my chest (I'd applied the lotion to my arm) for hours, and I felt more upbeat. However, the next morning I woke up feeling a little hungover. So I lowered the dose.

I've been experimenting with transdermal pantethine for a couple months now, and have been feeling somewhat better. I use NutriCology brand pantethine. My initial transdermal dose was half of a capsule. This was too strong for me, so I've lowered the dose a few times. After mixing the powder with just a tiny bit of body lotion, I apply it to my skin. I'll rub it onto the inside of my left forearm one day, then onto the inside of my right forearm the next day, then onto my stomach the next day, then back to my left forearm the next day. I do this to guard against the possibility of irritating my skin by putting it on the same spot every day.

Pantethine is the active form of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5).

Hi, Hugh.

What symptoms were you targeting?

I hadn't taken pantethine for a few years, and since it can act as an anti-inflammatory, I wanted to see if it would help my gastritis. Taking it orally irritated my stomach (it didn't have this effect on me pre-gastritis), so I decided to try taking it transdermally. Transdermal pantethine has done nothing for my gastritis, but it has improved my mood somewhat.
