What is Pantothenic Acid (Calcium Pantothenate)?

B5 is a water-soluble vitamin found in all living cells. It is one of the eight B Vitamins. It is also needed to synthesize coenzyme A, which is needed to active a number of chemical reactions within the body. It is also able to help your body produce ATP, another coenzyme that helps to fuel and energize your body.

Minute amounts of pantothenic acid can be found in numerous foods, with high quantities being found in meats. Whole grains also have a high amount of Vitamin B, but, unfortunately, milling removes much of it. For those who cannot obtain adequate pantothenic acid for their diets, they can take supplements instead. 

Vitamin B5 Benefits:

Calcium pantothenate increases the number of migrating cells to a wounded area, helping the body to speed up the recovery process. Patients often supplement with a combination of B5 and vitamin C after surgery to help with healing[1, 2].

B5 is necessary to break down proteins, carbohydrates and fats for energy production. Supplementing with B vitamins can aid in weight reduction by promoting metabolic function.[2].

Lastly, supplementation may allow individual's to utilize oxygen more effectively as well as reduce lactic acid build up in athletes.

Pantothenic Acid vs Pantethine
