Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is a water-soluble vitamin that is widely distributed in nature. In fact, the name comes from Greek "panthos," which means "everywhere" or "ubiquitous." Pantothenic acid is essential to many animals for growth, reproduction, and normal physiological function. Good sources of pantothenic acid include liver and kidney, poultry, beef, pork, fish, shellfish, lobster, eggs, milk, yogurt, soybeans, lentils, nuts, split peas, avocado, broccoli, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, yeast, whole grains, and royal jelly, and it is most bioavailable from animal sources. Pantothenic acid is easily destroyed by heat, freezing, and canning.
