Vitamin B5, or Pantothenic acid, works as part of the molecule called Coenzyme A (CoA). Pantothenic acid is essential for adrenal function, which includes healthy production of cortisol and other adrenal hormones. It is also very important for healthy skin and nerves, and supports the production of acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter), fatty acids, cholesterol, steroids, and phospholipids.
Pantothenic acid is naturally available in foods including brewer's yeast, organ meats, whole grains, broccoli, legumes, egg yolks, cheese, peanuts, chicken and fish. Many studies indicate that Pantethine, especially in this highly bioavailable form, can help to support liver and vascular health.
Pantethine, the coenzyme form of pantothenic acid, has been shown in numerous studies to support cholesterol and triglyceride levels that are already within the healthy range. Health Functions:
