PANTOTHENIC ACID

PANTOTHENIC ACID

How it Works

Pantothenic acid, also known as vitamin B5, is part of the vitamin B complex family and occurs in all living cells. It is synthesized in the body by the bacterial flora of the gut. Deficiencies may occur when the body lacks the gut flora needed to synthesize pantothenic acid. One of the primary roles of pantothenic acid is the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.

Recommended Use
