Vitamin B5 or Pantothenic acid is a water-soluble vitamin involved in the cycle of energy production in our body and is needed to make the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It is also essential in producing, transporting, and releasing energy from fats. Synthesis of cholesterol, needed to manufacture vitamin D and steroid hormones, depends on pantothenic acid. Pantothenic acid also activates the adrenal glands.

Doses of 2 g/day of calcium pantothenate will reduce the duration of morning stiffness, degree of disability, and pain severity in rheumatoid arthritis patients. Although the results are inconsistent, supplementation will improve oxygen utilization efficiency and reduce lactic acid accumulation even in athletes. Poor muscle co-ordination, muscle cramps, numbness and tingling, painful burning feet, depression, fatigue, weakness, headache and loss of appetite result if you are deficient in this vitamin, which people that consume large amounts of alcohol plus people under stress or who have undergone surgery need to take even more of.

Besides playing a role in the breakdown of fats and carbohydrates for energy, Vitamin B5 is critical to the manufacture of red blood cells as well as sex and stress-related hormones produced in the adrenal glands (small glands that sit atop of the kidneys).

Vitamin B5 is also important in maintaining a healthy digestive tract and it helps your body use other vitamins (particularly B2 [riboflavin]) more effectively. It is sometimes called the "anti-stress" vitamin because it is believed to enhance the activity of the immune system and improve your body's ability to withstand stressful conditions.
