Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)
Also known as: Vitamin B-5
Pantothenic acid, vitamin B-5, helps the body break down fats and carbohydrates for energy. This vitamin also supports cellular health and the production of red blood cells, promotes digestive system health, and helps the body use other vitamins, including B-2. It may also support skin health and healthy blood lipid levels. Pantothenic acid is found in a wide variety of foods, but unfortunately, the amount of vitamin B-5 decreases during processing. Processed foods, like canned and frozen goods, have less pantothenic acid than fresh, unprocessed foods.
