Our expert says:
Vit B 5 can be bought as pantothenic acid at health shops and Dischem. The recommended daily allowance is 5-7 mg per day for an adult, so 10 gram is more than 10 times the recommended dose. Although there are many claims that very high (mega-) doses of vit B 5 helps for acne, there were no clinical trials done to prove this. Vit B 5 is water soluble so overdoses are just removed via the kidneys, but in rats high doses caused liver damage. Very few dermatologists prescribe megadoses of pantothenic acid for acne.
