- Supports brain function
- Supports energy metabolism
A part of the B complex, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is a water-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in the production of cellular energy and metabolism.
It is an essential vitamin and the precursor to Coenzyme A (CoA), which is ubiquitous in the human body and is involved in some of the most important metabolic pathways for generating cellular energy.
As a neurotransmitter, CoA is also essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system.
Vitamin B5 is required for the synthesis of coenzyme A (CoA)
