Description

What is pantothenic acid?

Pantothenic acid is a vitamin, it is also known as vitamin B5 and is essential to all forms of life.

It is found throughout our cells in the form of coenzyme A (CoA), a vital coenzyme in numerous vital processes. CoA is required to generate energy from food (fat, carbohydrates, and proteins), and our livers require CoA to deal with a number of drugs and toxins effectively.

Why does it matter to me?

  • It plays a role in the absorption of fatty acids which are essential for the body to function normally.
  • It plays an important part in the way our cells communicate with each other, enabling them to work together in a coordinated way (cell signaling).

 
Watch out for…


Processing and refining grains may result in a 35% to 75% loss of pantothenic acid, freezing and canning of foods results in similar losses.
 

How much do I need?

 
The RDA (average daily intake to protect health for 98% of the population) for pantothenic acid is an AI (adequate intake) this is due to a lack of comprehensive data to arrive at an RDA. An AI is assumed to be at the level of an RDA or above it.
