Vitamins B5 Supplements

Pantothenic Acid is a pale yellow oily liquid. It is non crystalline but its crystallized form as calcium salt is easily available. It gets destroyed in acidic and alkaline solutions, but it stable in neutral medium.

Food processing, caffeine, sulphur drugs, sleeping pills, alcohol etc, also destroy it. Recent work indicates a more specific role for pantothenic acid in the biosynthesis of corticosteroids. Human blood normally contains 18 to 35 mg of pantothenic acid per 100 ml.

• It is considered necessary for synthesis of antibiotics, nervous and digestive system.
• It is expected to blacken hair, though not proved.
• It is a part of the enzyme to metabolize protein, carbohydrate and fats and also helps in synthesis of amino acids.
• It is also reported to be responsible for pigmentation of blood cells.
• It is considered beneficial in stress relieving, arthritis, infections, skin disorders, and premature graying.

Natural Sources of Pantothenic Acid

It is widely distributed both in animal and plant foods. It is found in whole wheat, peanut, mushroom, soyabean, brewer’s yeast, peas, molasses, kidney, liver, brain etc.
