    Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)


    Vitamin B5 is an ingredient of coenzyme A (CoA), which is used for oxidation of fatty acids, synthesis of acetyl CoA and acetyl choline, synthesis of cholesterol and heme, and decomposition of amino acids.


    It is also used for synthesis of fatty acids as an ingredient of Acyl Carrier Protein (ACP) (Figure 7).


    Generally, B5 is called an anti-stress vitamin, and it helps to improve symptoms such as chronic fatigue, nervous fatigue, hypoglycemia, hypotension, and insomnia.


    In addition, it improves the development of brain and central nervous system tissues, adrenal fatigue and reduced function.


    Fortunately, vitamin B5 is found in almost all foods, so deficiency rarely appears.
