Product description

The Benefits of Vitamin B5

Adrenal Support (500mg daily) – B5 is one element vital to healthy adrenal function, often with beneficial effects in people suffering allergies, stress and energy shortfalls.
Rheumatoid arthritis (1g-2g daily) – people with rheumatoid arthritis are more likely to be deficient in vitamin B5. Those supplementing experience reduced joint pain.
 
Properties
Vitamin B5 is one of the water-soluble group of B vitamins. Vitamin B5 helps manufacture coenzyme A (CoA) and acyl carrier protein (ACP), involved in the release of energy from fats, proteins and carbohydrates. CoA and ACP also activate the adrenal glands, helping form red blood cells and is needed for cholesterol synthesis so sterols can be made.
 
Contraindications / Precautions
No established side effects, adverse reactions or drug interactions are associated with pantothenic acid. Another form of B5, called panthenine, can lower cholesterol, but pantothenic acid/calcium pantothenate does not share this effect.
