Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) Info

Pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5) is known as the anti-stress vitamin, and is necessary for optimal healthy function of the adrenal glands. The adrenals are two walnut-sized glands situated above the kidneys whose primary function in the body is stress management. The adrenals produce several important hormones including cortisol, the body’s number one stress and anti- inflammatory hormone.

Another of the B complex vitamins, pantothenic acid is an antioxidant and has a vital role in metabolising carbohydrates and fats for energy production, and in manufacturing adrenal hormones and red blood cells.

Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) Benefits

Pantothenic acid is an important nutrient in restoring under functioning adrenals, as part of a comprehensive nutritional programme. Deficiency symptoms such as burning feet, numbness and shooting pains in the feet are all indications for vitamin B5 supplementation, in conjunction with other B group vitamins.

Our adrenal glands need vitamin B5 to produce the anti-inflammatory hormones, in particular cortisol. Pantothenic acid may therefore be indicated for any inflammatory or stress related condition, including arthritic symptoms.

Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) Side Effects

Pantothenic acid should always be taken in conjunction with a B complex supplement, as all the B group vitamins need to be present in the correct ratio for optimal effect. Caution is advised for children or during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Product Reviews

  • A great vitamin for stress, sickness, allergies and disorders of the immune system.

    star

    Vitamin B5 helps immensely with stress, infection, allergies. It goes hand in hand with Vitamin C to build antibodies and give you that pep to keep going when things get tough!
    I use it when under stress or feel a virus or cold coming on, and haven't had one for ages. Have just finished three very stressful years helping elderly, and often sick, parents move from their home of 52 years into a retirement village. This vitamin was on my list often during that time. I snap the tablets in half or quarters to extend usage and if needed, take 'bits' during the day with my faithful Ester C.

  • brilliant for dry skin

    star

    I have always had extremely dry skin, and had to put moisturiser on my legs daily. After taking B5 my legs no longer need moisturiser, and
    my arms are lovely and smooth also.
