CALCIUM D-PANTOTHENATE USP
CALCIUM D-PANTOTHENATE USP is used for the prevention and treatment of D-pantothenic acid deficiency (e.g., by means of multivitamins or B-complex preparations). Calpan is practical for preventing pantothenic acid deficiency as well as meeting particular nutritional requirements.
CALCIUM D-PANTOTHENATE USP is best used in solid dosage forms (tablets, sugar-coated tablets, effervescent tablets, film-coated tablets, chewable tablets, and capsules). The product is also hygroscopic and suitable for direct compression. For liquid and semisolid dosage forms, particularly when used in combination with other vitamins, D-panthenol (provitamin B5) is preferable to Calcium D-pantothenate because of its superior stability. CALCIUM D-PANTOTHENATE USP can be added to a number of food products (e.g., products for babies and small children, food products for athletes, low-calorie and calorie-reduced foods, vitamin-fortified juices, etc.).
