What is Pantothenic Acid?
Pantothenic Acid Vitamin B5
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) is found in varying amounts in virtually every food, derived from the Greek pantos, meaning everywhere. It is a water-soluble vitamin that plays a key role in the production of the adrenal hormones and formation of antibodies, aids in vitamin utilisation, and helps convert fats, carbohydrates and proteins into energy.
What is Pantothenic Acid used for?
Vitamin B5 for ANTI-STRESS
Vitamin B5 is the main nutrient for nourishing the adrenal glands. It is needed by the adrenal glands to make glucocorticoids, which may be the reason that B5 is known as the anti-stress vitamin.
Nutritionally oriented doctors often recommend pantothenic acid at 250mg twice daily, in the treatment of allergies.
Vitamin B5 and ENERGY PRODUCTION
Pantothenic acid is crucial for energy release through the production of coenzyme A (CoA) and acyl carrier protein (ACP), two compounds known for their importance in protein, fat, and carbohydrate utilisation.
Vitamin B5 and MEMORY
Pantothenic acid is vital for making the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, a key compound in memory processes and brain function.
Vitamin B5 for ACNE
Pantothenic acid, active in the synthesis of cholesterol and steroid hormones, may be useful at high dosages in the treatment of acne. Research has shown noticeable improvements in decreasing sebum secretion, reduced frequency of eruptions, and improvements in lesion healing.
Vitamin B5 and ARTHRITIS
Vitamin B5 supplementation has been found to reduce pain and stiffness in cases of rheumatoid arthritis. Correcting low blood levels of B5 in these individuals has shown subjective improvements including, morning stiffness, degree of disability, and severity of pain. The mechanism underpinning these effects are likely to be due to improved adrenal response through restored cortisol production.
B5 (pantothenic acid) contributes to normal mental performance and a reduction in tiredness and fatigue. Vitamin B5 also contributes to the normal synthesis and metabolism of steroid hormones, vitamin D and some neurotransmitters.
