Coenzyme A And It's Health Benefits
Coenzyme A, a substance manufactured by body cells from pantotheic acid (vitamin B5), is at the center of the whole metabolic process. It performs a vital role in the process by which the cells generate energy from glucose. Indeed, it helps produce around 90 percent of the energy the body needs to function. Coenzyme A also begins the metabolism of fatty acids. A lack of sufficient coenzyme A can result in stiff, sore muscles and a decrease in energy. Taken as a supplement, coenzyme A increases energy, supports the manufacture of substances critical for the brain and adrenal glands, helps with the manufacture of connective tissue, and supports the immune system. Studies suggest that coenzyme A may be as, if not more, beneficial than coenzyme Q10.
Coenzyme-A is produced in the cells of the liver and other organs. The highest concentrations are in the heart, kidneys, brain, adrenal glands and skeletal muscles. The nutrients that your body needs to make Coenzyme A are pantothenic acid, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and cysteine - all of which are provided through dietary intake.
