Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is part of the B-vitamin complex and is essential for healthy adrenal and immune function. In particular, pantothenic acid serves as the starting material for the synthesis of coenzyme A, which is important for metabolism of fats and synthesis of adrenal hormones. Pantothenic acid plays a key role in the formation of acetylcholine, which is needed in the transmission of nerve impulses. Thorne supplies 225 mg of pantothenic acid in each capsule of B-Complex #5 in addition to a blend of B vitamins. This formula provides support for those who not only require a good vitamin B-complex but who may also need extra adrenal support. Thorne's B-Complex #5 supplies 225 mg of pantothenic acid and the bioactive forms of the other B vitamins in each capsule to ensure you get the most bioavailable B-complex available. B-Complex #5 consists of a group of eight water-soluble compounds: thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), cobalamin (vitamin B12), folate, and biotin. Although each B vitamin is chemically distinct, they often work together in various biochemical functions throughout the body - from cellular energy production, to healthy red-blood-cell formation, to healthy neurological function. Most B vitamins, with the exception of vitamin B12, are not stored in the body; consequently, they must be acquired daily from the diet in order to maintain optimal health. Ingredients
