How does pantothenic acid work in the body?
Pantothenic acid, which is also called vitamin B5, is a water-soluble vitamin that is important for the body's metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. It supports the body's metabolism and also our mental performance. Pantothenic acid works primarily with an enzyme called coenzyme A, often abbreviated CoA. It is coenzyme A that is important for the metabolism of fatty acids in the body and therefore the body's cells are dependent on the enzymes. Vitamin B5 allows coenzyme A to release energy from carbohydrates, protein and fat.
Does pantothenic acid help against acne?
It has not yet been established whether pantothenic acid helps with acne, but several studies have produced many interesting results. In a study conducted in China, high doses of vitamin B5 were found to reduce pores and thus reduce the appearance of fine lines. According to the theory behind it, the process that regulates fatty acids works better with the help of pantothenic acid. If the fatty acids transported out of the pores are reduced, the blackheads that often contribute to pimples are also reduced (1). However, this study is not enough to prove that pantothenic acid really works, but pantothenic acid is still a popular supplement among people suffering from severe acne.
Recommended daily intake of vitamin B5
At present, there are no direct guidelines for the amount of pantothenic acid that you should get per day, but the National Food Administration has set a recommendation of 5 mg. This is a minimum value so that you do not become deficient in the vitamin, but other dosages can be used therapeutically. Vitamin B5 is found naturally in many foods and especially in meat.
Side effects of pantothenic acid
Because vitamin B5 is a water-soluble vitamin, it cannot be stored in the body but all the excess disappears. There are also no known side effects of the vitamin.
