Now Foods Pantothenic Acid is a dietary supplement which contains one of the most important and necessary compounds in the organism - "pantothenic acid", that is vitamin B5. Moreover, it was enriched with an additional dose of calcium.

Pantothenic acid - an organic chemical compound, very common in fauna and flora (in Greek, the word pantothen means "from everywhere" - the acid is literally ubiquitous). It is necessary for every living cell but it is not frequently found in nature by itself. It is a water-soluble vitamin, boiling inactivates only a small amount present in food.

Its role in the organism:
It is a component of coenzyme A (CoA) which takes part in generating energy from food, participates in the synthesis of vitamin D, cholesterol, fatty acids, erythrocytes (haem), several hormones and neurotransmitters. It is also active in regenerating skin cells and mucous membranes. It takes part in producing antibodies. It is also believed that pantothenic acid delays aging processes in the organism, prevents hair greying, restores its natural colour, reduces stress and constipations.

Deficiency consequences
Pantothenic acid is commonly present in most food products and it is additionally synthesised by microorganisms living in our gastrointestinal tracts. In studies with volunteers, they were given strongly modified food without pantothenic acid and the acid was removed from their organisms by the means of special agents. Dangerous symptoms of avitaminosis were observed as soon as after 6-9 months.

Direct consequences of the deficiency might be: disorders of the cardiovascular system, increased heart rate, skin lesions, fatigue, sleep disorders, excessive irritability, anxiety, headaches, nausea, impaired wound healing, sensory disturbances in arms and legs, burning feet syndrome, coordination problems, disorders of the digestive system, e.g. indigestion.

People whose diet is based mainly on boiled and canned food, fries, white bread, pizza, pasta and, on top of that, a lot of sugar and sweets are a group of high risk when it comes to vitamin B5 deficiency.

What is the daily requirement of vitamin B5?
The recommended intake of vitamin B5 for an adult is around 5-6 mg. Pregnant and breastfeeding women, smokers, alcoholics, malnourished people, patients with a chronic wasting disease, people under chronic stress and excessive physical effort, particularly those who do high-level competitive sports - those groups require a higher intake of vitamin B5.

Sources in food: veal, bovine kidneys and liver, pork, chicken, trout, flounder, wholemeal wheat flour, wheat bran, soybean, corn, mushrooms like boletus, walnuts, milk, eggs, peas, beer yeast, bee milk, bananas.

Can it be overdosed?
The excess of pantothenic acid is excreted with urine and faeces, large doses may only cause diarrhoea and water retention in the organism (doses larger than 10-20 grams a day).

To sum up, Now Foods Pantothenic Acid is a perfect supplement to supply our bodies with vitamin B5, necessary for its normal functioning. Its dosage was accurately prepared so that it can be helpful for everyone, particularly for sportspeople and those who are under chronic, exhausting stress

Information

Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.

Excess result

The dosage administered in various publications
