Pure Encapsulations Pantothenic Acid offers support for cells and the heart. Pantothenic acid is a B complex vitamin that helps your body convert the carbohydrates and fats you eat into the energy that keeps you going from day to day. In addition this vitamin helps your adrenal glands (which are located on top of your kidneys) produce essential hormones that are related to stress relief and sexual health. It also plays a vital role in manufacturing red blood cells the cells that deliver essential oxygen to the tissues through the circulatory system. Since pantothenic acid is water-soluble your body cant store it for long periods of time. Good dietary sources of vitamin B5 include organ meats broccoli avocados legumes salmon and whole grains; however many processed foods have had the pantothenic acid stripped out of them. You might want to take a supplement like Pure Encapsulations Pantothenic Acid in order to ensure that you have sufficient levels of this nutrient on a daily basis.
