So, what is acid pantotenic?

Pantothenic acid, also known as vitamin B5, is an essential nutrient that plays a vital role in several bodily functions. It is a water-soluble vitamin that is required for the synthesis of coenzyme A (CoA), a molecule that is necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Pantothenic acid also plays a role in the production of hormones and cholesterol, as well as the formation of red blood cells. This vitamin is found in a wide range of foods, including meats, fish, poultry, whole grains, and vegetables, making it easy to obtain through a balanced diet.
