The primary function of Vitamin B5, also known as Pantothenic Acid, is to synthesise and metabolise carbohydrates. It converts them from food into fuel in the form of glucose, which the body is then able to use as energy.
Since Vitamin B5 is soluble in water it is dispersed throughout the body dissolved in fluid. It is not stored in the body to any appreciable extent and must be replenished every day. Its influence on the body lasts for approximately 14-18 hours after ingestion, after which its effectiveness can decrease.
