Vitamin B5 (aka. Pantothenic Acid) is a water soluble vitamin so we need a steady stream of it.
Here at Forest Whole Food we think being a ‘food detective’ is so important in today’s world. Nutrition facts are fun once you start learning the ropes so we make sure we share as much information as possible.
B5 is essential throughout the bodies systems and because it is part of the B Vitamin group it is associated with maintaining energy levels. B Vitamins work as a team and many supplements are made up of a complex.
Vitamin B5 supports:
- The reduction of tiredness and fatigue
- Energy-yielding metabolism
- Mental performance
- The normal synthesis and metabolism of steroid hormones, vitamin D and some neurotransmitters
