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 several drugs and toxins effectively1.

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)2.

  • It contributes to normal mental performance and to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue3.

 
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 losses4.
 

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.
