Pantothenic Acid, also known as vitamin B5 is a water-soluble vitamin, which means that it runs through the bloodstream and any excess of this vitamin is excreted in urine. Therefore, our body does not store this vitamin, so we have to consume it every day.
B vitamins are known energy boosters, because they turn proteins, fats and carbohydrates from the food we eat into energy. This specific vitamin helps lower bad cholesterol and blood triglycerides levels.
Deficiency of pantothenic acid is practically unheard of, because this vitamin is found in small quantities in nearly all foods. Some of the best sources of this vitamin are meat products - especialy beef liver, fish and avocado.
