B5 (pantothenic acid) is found in varying amounts in virtually every food, hence its name derived from the Greek pantos, meaning everywhere. It is a water-soluble vitamin that has a key role in the release of energy from foods.
It is also needed for healthy growth and the production of antibodies to help fight infection. This key B vitamin helps convert food into energy and is essential for the normal functioning of the adrenal glands, along with other benefits.
ANTI-STRESS Vitamin B5 is the main nutrient for nourishing the adrenal glands. It is needed by the adrenal glands to make glucocorticoids, which may be the reason that B5 is known as the anti-stress vitamin.
