As co-enzymes, the B vitamins are essential components in most major metabolic reactions. They play an important role in energy production, including the metabolism of lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins. B vitamins are also important for blood cells, hormones, and nervous system function. As water-soluble substances, B vitamins are not generally stored in the body in any appreciable amounts (with the exception of vitamin B-12). Therefore, the body needs an adequate supply of B vitamins on a daily basis. Pantothenic acid, also known as vitamin B-5, is a coenzyme essential for energy production from dietary proteins, fats and carbohydrates. It is a component of coenzyme A and of phosphopantetheine, and is therefore essential for Krebs cycle operation.
Pantothenic Acid 500 mg may be a useful dietary adjunct for individuals who wish to supplement their diet with generous amounts of pantothenic acid.
