TwinLab Pantothenic Acid (B-5) Caps - 100ea
Pantothenic Acid, a water-soluble vitamin, was discovered in 1919 by R.J. Williams, a biochemist, and was quickly sorted into the B-complex of vitamins. Pantothenic acid is attributed the appellation Vitamin B-5, and its deficiency has been linked to acne, paresthesia, and muscle cramps. Twinlab’s Pantothenic Acid (B-5) capsules are surmised to increase lactic acid dispersion in athletes and bodybuilders, and may help reduce morning stiffness. According to research, Pantothenic acid potentially has a role to play in fat loss and weight management. Natural sources of Vitamin B-5 include meats, whole grains and green vegetables; royal jelly is the richest source of vitamin B-5 naturally available. Pantothenic acid is not toxic and will not harm humans at almost any dosage; gastrointestinal distress was the only reported side-effect from massive doses.
How do Pantothenic Acid (B-5) Caps Work?
Each one-capsule serving of Twinlab’s Pantothenic Acid (B-5) contains 2,500% of the daily recommended dose of Vitamin B-5, based on a 2,000 calorie per day diet. Twinlab’s Pantothenic Acid is derived from d-calcium pantothenate for its superior stability in the digestive tract and corresponding increase in bioavailability.

They are well tolerated by highly allergic individuals and contain no food allergens.
Pantothenic Acid, or Vitamin B-5 is mostly used by bodybuilders and athletes to reduce the accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles, a cause of muscle fatigue due to a reduction in the rate of intra-cellular mitochondrial energy generation, or metabolism. It also has applications in decreasing the level of disability in patients with severe rheumatoid arthritis, as well as lessening pain levels. Maintaining constant, elevated levels of Vitamin B-5 is surmised to have effects on weight management, by allowing the brain to correctly interpret levels of appetite. Studies have also been conducted to research the effect of Pantothenic acid mega-doses on severe acne sufferers, with promising results in as little as a week.
