Pantothenic Acid is also known as vitamin B5 and is partly
manufactured by intestinal microorganisms. It is readily available amongst the
common foods eaten making a deficiency rare.
Vit B5 is water soluble thereby making it very hard to overdose.
This vitamin is highly necessary for adrenal function, making the steroid
hormones and thus helping stress levels. It converts fat and sugars into energy,
maintains normal growth and tissue replacement, and is necessary to sustain the
central nervous system, making the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
As with all B vitamins they are best taken along with a good B complex
product to prevent any imbalances occuring. eg NSP's Vit B Complex in capsule
form or Balanced Vit B.
