Pantothenic Acid is also known as Vitamin B5, part of the B-Complex group of vitamins. Vitamin B5 is not stored in the body to any appreciable extent & therefore must be replenished every day. Wise Owl’s Vitamin B5 supplement is a ‘Food State’ supplement and thus provides nutrients in the same form as those in food. It comprises a food base of ‘lactobacillus bulgaricus’ which acts as a natural carrier to helps give optimal absorption & utilisation of the nutrients. It also contains amino acids that can help absorption.
The primary function of Vitamin B5 is to synthesise & metabolise carbohydrates – from food to glucose to energy. It also stimulates the adrenal glands & thus increases production of cortisone and other adrenal hormones. Vitamin B5 is essential for the synthesis of cholesterol, steroids & fatty acids & aids in the utilisation of other vitamins.
