In brief: Vitamin B5 Functions

I commend you for your desire to have good Health.
Vitamin B5 is critical to the manufacture of red blood cells, as well as sex and stress-related hormones produced in the adrenal glands. It plays a role in the breakdown of fats and carbohydrates for energy. It is important in maintaining a healthy digestive tract. Vitamin B5 helps the body use other vitamins, particularly Vitamin B2.
