Vitamin B5 - Your Digestive System Depends On It


Vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid plays a supporting role in the secretion of hormones, such as cortisone. In so doing, Vitamin B5 assists body
metabolism, wards off body allergies and helps keep the skin, muscles,
and nerves in optimum condition.

The human body also needs the help of Vitamin B to release energy as
well as to metabolize fat, protein, and carbohydrates. Without this
vitamin, the body will encounter problems with creating
neurotransmitters, certain hormones, and haemoglobin. This gives you an
idea how important this vitamin is to the body's vital functions!

Great sources of Vitamin B5 are beef, brewer's yeast, eggs, fresh
vegetables, kidney, legumes, liver, mushrooms, nuts, pork, royal jelly,
saltwater fish, and whole-wheat foods.


Vitamin B5 Deficiencies

Research also indicates that lack of enough Vitamin B5 in the body can
lead to fatigue, headaches, nausea, depression, and even moodiness.

If you find yourself prone to infection, fatigue, abdominal pains, sleep
disturbances and neurological disorders, you might consider taking
prescribed amounts of Vitamin B5.

Is your diet utterly lacking in non-refined foods? Are you taking a lot of
alcohol? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you will need
more Vitamin B5 in your system.


Vitamin B5 Dosage


The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) is between 10 to 100 mg.
Exceeding the limit usually leads to diarrhea; with taking 15 or more times
the limit usually leading to hypersensitive teeth.

Vitamin B5 performs best when taken with the rest of the B complex
vitamins, and with Vitamin A, C, and E.
