Pantothenic acid, also known as Vitamin B5, is one of the essential B complex vitamins. It works to free up energy from the food you eat (glucose) to use as fuel from the body. Among other things, B5 also plays a pivotal role in the generation of new red blood cells, the creation of the sex hormones (including testosterones), the processing of other B complex vitamins—most pivotally, riboflavin, and cholesterol synthesis.
The Power of Pantothenic Acid
One study out of the Princeton Longevity Center found that B5 supplements can lower LDL cholesterol levels—similar to how statin drugs operate. Pantothenic acid may be useful in preventing diabetic angiopathy, diabetes symptoms, and an array of maladies from carpal tunnel syndrome to colitis to kidney disorders. B5 works synergistically with other B complex vitamins in the body. These include thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), and cyanocobalamin (B12), which are also included in Xjus’s special testosterone-enhancing formula.
Oral applications of pantothenic acid are routinely given to help people with problems like:
- Mental/physical stress and anxiety
- Skin disorders
- A B5 skin application, called dexpanthenol, is frequently used to treat eczema, adverse reactions to bug bites, and poison ivy.
Where Can You Obtain B5?
The good news is that pantothenic acid is present in diverse foodstuffs—hence, the name “pantothenic”—the root “pan” literally means everywhere. Common dietary sources include: avocados, eggs, cruciferous vegetables, fortified cereals, potatoes, milk, peanuts, kale, peas, organ meats, shellfish, and yeast.
