Two. What is vitamin B5?
Vitamin B5 is an essential vitamin for the human body and is one of the water-soluble vitamins. Besides vitamin B5, the vitamin is also known as pantothenic acid. If the human organism had no vitamin B5, it would easily go out of balance. Vitamin B5 is always associated with proteins, enzymes and amino acids. Furthermore, vitamin B5 is essential for energy metabolism and indispensable for the synthesis of neurotransmitters. Since the organism cannot produce the vitamin itself, it must be taken in daily through the diet. Since the vitamin is sensitive to heat, foods that contain a lot of vitamin B5 should not be cooked but steamed so that the special nutrients are not lost. Vitamin B5 is found in almost all foods.

In general, one should always bear in mind that age, weight and height always play a significant role. Factors such as diet and lifestyle should also be taken into account. There are different groups of people who need more vitamin B5 than usual. These include pregnant and breastfeeding women, for example, as they have to provide for their offspring.
