What pantothenic acid does for you

It helps ensure that each cell in your body has a steady supply of energy by helping to convert carbohydrates and fat in the food you eat into glucose your body can use. Pantothenic acid is also important for acetylcholine, fatty acid, cholesterol and phospholipids synthesis. It also helps ensure normal body growth and helps the body fight infection by producing antibodies. Lastly, it helps synthesise the stress hormone in the adrenal glands, which helps us to manage stress. It is also thought to prevent ageing and skin wrinkles.
