Pantothenic acid dietary supplement is a water-soluble vitamin that is involved in the metabolism of all nutrients in the body. It is mainly taken into the body in food and drink, mainly liver, milk, yeast, meat and pulses. It is present in all human tissue and has an irreplaceable role. The active form of pantothenic acid in the organism is coenzyme A, which is involved in basic sugar and fat conversion and the synthesis of other vital substances, such as hormones, haemoglobin and amino acids. It helps the skin, hair and nails. Pantothenic acid helps the energy metabolism function normally and the synthesis and metabolism of steroid hormones, vitamin D and certain neurotransmitters. Pantothenic acid also helps reduce fatigue and exhaustion and helps normal mental activity. A lack of pantothenic acid in the body results mainly in tiredness, leg cramps, depression, reduced resistance to infection and a lack of appetite. An daily intake of 10-20 mg of pantothenic acid is required for normal functioning. In cases of acute deficiency or short-term treatment, however, we recommend a dosage of 100 mg daily.
