Dexpanthenol

Dexpanthenol is a synthetic alcohol of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). It used as a food additive, in multivitamins, and in cosmetics. Pantothenic acid occurs naturally in the body. Dexpanthenol is used prophylactically after surgery to prevent atony of the intestine, treat itching skin and minor wounds. Pantothenic acid is purported to have additional beneficial effects including, but not limited to, increased athletic performance, constipation, dry eyes, allergies, and hair loss; although data may not support them all. Dexpanthenol is an alcohol of D-pantothenic and cholinergic agent. It is readily oxidized to pantothenic acid which is in turn a precursor to coenzyme A, a cofactor of a variety of enzyme catalyzed reactions including synthesis of acetylcholine. Dexpanthenol may increase the effect of acetylcholine. It also acts on the gastrointestinal tract and increases gut motility. When applied topically, it relieves itching and promotes health.
