Vitamin B-5 (Pantothenic Acid)
Vitamin B-5, also known as Pantothenic Acid, is one of a group of 8 water-soluble B-vitamins. The primary function of B-5 is the synthesis of coenzyme A (CoA) and acyl carrier protein (ACP). B-5 plays a major role in breaking down fats and sugars for energy.
Pantothenic Acid and its derivatives cannot be stored in the body in sufficient amounts and any excess is secreted quickly. B-5 is best taken in combination with other B-vitamins (especially B-1, B-2, B-3, and B-6), as they play codependent roles in energy production. *
