What is pantothenic acid?
Pantothenic acid plays an important role in the metabolism of carbohydrates, protein, and fat, which means that it's vital to the metabolism of energy. Pantothenic acid is also essential for the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which in turn is important for normal nervous system and muscle function.
Pantothenic acid mainly works with an enzyme called coenzyme A, often shortened to CoA. Coenzyme A is involved in the metabolism of fatty acids in the body and the body's cells are therefore dependent on the enzyme. Vitamin B5 helps coenzyme A release energy from carbohydrates, protein, and fat.
