Vitamin B5 converts to ‘co-enzyme A’, which is involved in breaking down carbohydrates, fat and protein to make energy, and in making steroids, fatty acids, bile, haemoglobin and cholesterol. The brain contains high amounts of B5. Vitamin B5 helps make two important substances involved in nerve transmission – ‘acetylcholine’ and ‘sphingosine’. B5 is important for a healthy immune system. It supports the adrenal glands and helps maintain healthy skin, digestion, nerves, bones and joints. Pantothenic acid helps balance cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, stress, mood and sleep. Antibiotics, illness and alcohol deplete levels.
