Known as the “anti-stress vitamin”, pantothenic acid plays a role in the production of the adrenal hormones and the formation of antibodies. It helps promote a healthy nervous system and also supports the sinuses and can help the body recover more quickly from surgery. Vitamin B5 is also a stamina enhancer and prevents certain forms of anaemia.
Pangamic acid is involved in energy production and oxygen metabolism.
Signs of pantothenic acid deficiency: Fatigue, headache, nausea, skin complaints and fluctuating blood sugar levels.
