Keywords:Dexpanthenol, Dietary sources, Wound healing, Pantothenic acid
Dexpanthenol, a vitamin from the B complex that is an alcoholic analogue of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), is converted to pantothenic acid by certain enzymes and then circulated throughout the body as coenzyme-A. Pantothenic acid is rich in the liver, kidney, butter, almond and wheat bran. Dexpanthenol is administered topically as an ointment, emulsion, or solution at dosages of 2 to 5% to treat a variety of skin and mucosal conditions. Pantothenic acid is reported to act as anti-inflammatory, radical scavenger and assist in the wound healing. In this review, we want to shed some light on the dietary sources, medicinal significance, and wound healing applications of dexpanthenol.
