Pantothenic acid vs pantethine


Senior Member

I have a question regarding Pantothenic acid vs Pantethine. From what I understand, these 2 supplements are both different forms of Vitamin B5. I also understand that Pantethine is suppose to be the active form of Pantothenic acid.... Yet when I read review on hundreds of people who have tried them most say that Pantothenic Acid has helped with Cyst Acne and Pantethine has helped with lowering Cholesterol. How come? aren't they both the same thing and thus should have the exact same benefit?
Please educate me,
