Pantothenic Acid - Vitamin B5
Pantothenic Acid, also called vitamin B5, is a water-soluble vitamin with many functions in the body. B5 is most well-known for being involved in energy production: it is essential in producing, transporting, and releasing energy from fats, and it participates in the ongoing breakdown of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, converting them into compounds the body can use. B5 is also needed to make the important neurotransmitter Acetylcholine, which the brain uses to send messages to the skeletal muscles, sweat glands, and heart.
B5 is also responsible for producing numerous enzymes necessary for the body to function properly. Some research suggests that supplementing with B5 may help migraines because B5 is involved in the production of the brain chemical seretonin, and seretonin levels are unusually low in people who suffer migraines.
It is very rare to be deficient in B5 because it occurs naturally in many foods, and can easily be found in Multivitamins and B-complex Vitamins. B5 is also a very safe supplement, even in high amounts. There have never been any reported interactions between B5 and other supplements or prescription medications.
