All About Vitamins | Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)

Discovered in 1933, Pantothenic Acid sometimes called Vitamin B5, is an essential nutrient and forms an important part of your daily diet.


Like other B vitamins, it helps convert the proteins, carbs and fats in your diet into energy. It is also crucial for the development of red blood cells, having healthy skin and hair, and a properly functioning nervous system.


Added to a lot of whole-grain processed foods, you can find it naturally in mushrooms, avocados, and broccoli.


Deficiency in this vitamin is quite rare, but issues are thought to be not dissimilar to those found in other B vitamins; fatigue, lower energy levels, restlessness, sleep issues, and muscle cramps.

The best way to see if you are converting the vitamins out of your diet properly is with a DNA test. Explore the NGX website and pick up a DNA test to understand how your body operates at a genetic level.
