There are several different forms that Pantothenic Acid comes in. As far as supplemental sources are concerned, D-Calcium Pantothenate is the most popular source of this vitamin since it is much more stable than Pantothenic Acid bound to Calcium. Absorption of this source into the digestive tract is much simpler as well. Just about every single fruit and vegetable has some amount of Pantothenic Acid in it (which is what gave the acid it's name, as in the original Greek, "Pantos" means everywhere), with the best sources being chicken, milk, beef, and mushrooms.

Pantothenic Acid is particularly important because of its relation to Coenzyme A. The body converts Pantothenic Acid into Pantethine. Pantethine is a building block of CoA, which itself is important in supporting various bodily functions including The Krebs Cycle, as well as the conversion of various nutrients, proteins, sugars, and fat into energy that the body can use. It also helps to destroy toxins in the liver and break down drugs as well as synthesizing Cholesterol, Choline, and Melatonin. Another chemical resulting indirectly from the breakdown of Pantothenic Acid in the body is ACP. ACP helps to protect nerves from being damaged easily.

Health Benefits Provided By Vitamin B5

The presence of Pantothenic Acid throughout the body allows bodily growth to keep up at a normal level, letting all normal bodily functions to run smoothly. Pantothenic Acid is also instrumental when it comes to creating energy through the metabolic process. It also helps break down essential amino acids and fatty acids into components that can actually be used by the body. This is part of what gives it the capability of keeping the digestive tract in shape and improving the effectiveness of other vitamins consumed.

It is hard to find true cases of Pantogenic Acid deficiency since rich sources of Pantogenic Acid are found just about everywhere; however, this can be a problem for people that are going through starvation. The symptoms of Vitamin B5 deficiency include tiredness, depression, cramps, heart anomalies, numbness, insomnia, and mood swings.

Because of its sensitivity, Vitamin B5 is never added to processed foods since processing techniques usually destroy it. This is why it is best to eat fresher foods for a good source of Pantothenic Acid.

Easy to take

I ordered B-5 as part of Adelle Davis' recipe for treating enlarged adenoids. I like how it dissolves. Also, you can more easily adjust how much you take when buying in bulk.

Good stuff...

Mixes well, good for the adrenals, and also good for detoxing petrochemicals (along with glycine). This is an underutilized B vitamin.
