Source Naturals Pantothenic Acid Vitamin B-5 250 mg - 100 tablets
Source NaturalsPantothenic acid is a member of the B-vitamin family, and is often referred to as vitamin B-5. Source Naturals Pantothenic Acid Vitamin B-5's bioactive form, coenzyme A, plays many roles in the body, including the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, the production of energy, as well as the synthesis of red blood cells and the key neurotransmitter, acetylcholine.
Source Naturals Panthothenic Immune Booster
The fact that this vitamin B5 works to decrease stress and helps to create antibodies, which are proteins in the immune system that fight bacteria and viruses, is no coincidence. Stress often weakens our immune system and makes us vulnerable to illness. However, pantothenic acid enhances the immune system and regulates stress-related hormones to ensure a healthy state of mind. The production of more antibodies also aid in healing. Wounds recover faster and bacterial infections become less likely.

Where is it found?
Liver, yeast, and salmon have high concentrations of pantothenic acid, but most other foods, including vegetables, dairy, eggs, grains, and meat, also provide some pantothenic acid.
Are there any side effects or interactions?
No serious side effects have been reported, even at intakes of up to 10,000 mg (10 grams) per day. Very large amounts of pantothenic acid (several grams per day) can cause diarrhea. Pantothenic acid works together with vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and vitamin B3 to help make the fuel our bodies run on.
Source Naturals Pantothenic Acid Addresses the Following Body Systems
Every second of our lives, billions of biochemical reactions are taking place in our bodies. New molecules are produced and spent as old ones are broken down and disposed of. Our metabolism is a massive, complex, yet perfectly orchestrated system of energy that enables us to survive and thrive. In almost every chemical reaction in the body, a spark is needed to energize the reaction. This spark is provided by adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), the energy molecule. It is fundamental to our physiology.
The human brain is the most complex structure known to man; much of how it functions and enables us to think, feel, contemplate abstract concepts, plan our future, and control many bodily processes is yet to be discovered. The function of the brain and nervous system is based on the unique structure of nerve cells (also called neurons), which take in and send out messages in the form of electrical impulses running through the phospholipids and minerals of the cell membranes. Although it is only two percent of our body weight, the brain consumes 20 percent of our energy. Neurotransmitters, brain chemicals that pass messages from one neuron to another, must be produced in adequate quantities to support mood, intelligence, concentration, assertiveness and calmness. This creates a tremendous need for nutritional fuel and energy. Brain functioning can be significantly improved by the right quantity and quality of nutrients.
At any moment, millions of biochemical reactions are taking place in or around our nearly 100 trillion cells. To function at high levels of health, our metabolism is constantly binding molecules together and breaking them apart. In a way, our health is a function of the ease, speed, and coordination of these myriad reactions, processes named methylation, acetylation, phosphorylation, and sulfation. Hormones are messengers that tell the body to begin its various physiological activities, such as growth or sexual development. Hormones are produced in our glands and are often triggered by the brain. They are part of the intricate mechanism that makes us humans with unique personalities.
About Source Naturals
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula™, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple™, Mega-Kid Multiple™, Inflama-Rest™, the Skin Eternal™ line, Higher Mind™, Essential Enzymes™, Male Response™, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas™ help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals' nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
