Pantothenic Acid

Also indexed as:Calcium Pantothenate, Pantethine, Vitamin B5
Pantothenic Acid: Main Image

How to Use It

Most people do not need to supplement with pantothenic acid. However, the 10-25 mg found in many multivitamin supplements might improve pantothenic acid status. So-called primitive human diets provided greater amounts of this nutrient than is found in modern diets. Most cholesterol researchers using pantethine have given people 300 mg three times per day (total 900 mg).

Where to Find It

Liver, yeast, and salmon have high concentrations of pantothenic acid, but most other foods, including vegetables, dairy, eggs, grains, and meat, also provide some pantothenic acid.

Possible Deficiencies

Pantothenic acid deficiencies may occur in people with alcoholism but are generally believed to be rare.
