Science-Based Health Benefits of Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)

Science-Based Health Benefits of Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)

Pantothenic acid, also known as vitamin B5, is an important B vitamin that’s used in many different processes in the body including the conversion of food into energy.

As a supplement it is available in several different forms including calcium pantothenate, D-pantothenic acid, zinc pantothenate, dexpanthenol and pantethine.

Pantothenic acid is included in Adrenal Support and Hair, Skin and Nails Support by Beyond Vita®. 

1. Adrenal Health

A deficiency in pantothenic acid may lead to a lower output of adrenal hormones.1 Another study found supplementing with pantothenic acid may increase output.2

Low adrenal hormone production can result in fatigue and a lack of energy.

Pantothenic acid may help increase adrenal hormone production.

2. Helps Lower Cholesterol

In a 2014 randomized triple-blinded placebo controlled study with 32 participants, low to moderate cardiovascular disease researchers found that supplementation with pantethine lowered LDL cholesterol and decreased risk markers for cardiovascular disease.3 Two previous studies also found similar results.4,5

Pantothenic acid as pantethine may help to lower cholesterol levels.

3. Skin Health

Calcium pantothenate has been shown to help increase the production of collagen. Collagen is the main protein in skin which makes it smooth and elastic. In addition it has also been shown to help skin cells multiply faster which may speed up skin healing.6,7

Pantothenic acid may help improve skin health.


Pantothenic acid is an important vitamin that may help improve adrenal health, skin health and cholesterol levels.*
