So, what is pantothenic acid?

Pantothenic acid, also known as vitamin B5, is an essential nutrient that plays a crucial role in various bodily functions. It is a water-soluble vitamin that helps convert food into energy and is necessary for the production of red blood cells, hormones, and neurotransmitters. Pantothenic acid is found in many foods, including meats, poultry, fish, whole grains, and legumes. It is also available in supplement form and is often included in multivitamins and B-complex supplements. A deficiency in pantothenic acid can cause fatigue, numbness, and tingling in the hands and feet, and gastrointestinal disturbances.
