Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)


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.

Vitamin B5
by Lori Strehle

As a child I suffered with serious bouts of croup every winter. A friend of the family suggested that my mother give me pantothenic acid (B5) to help the situation. I don't know what the supplement actually did, but we did see a major improvement in my immune system that winter and it was the first time in my life I didn't spend the holidays in the emergency room battling croup.
