As co-enzymes, the B vitamins are essential components in most major metabolic reactions. They play an important role in adrenal function, energy production, including the metabolism of lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins. B vitamins are also important for blood cells, hormones, and nervous system function. As water-soluble substances, B vitamins are not generally stored in the body in any appreciable amounts (with the exception of vitamin B-12). Therefore, the body needs an adequate supply of B vitamins on a daily basis.
Pantothenic acid, also known as vitamin B-5, converts into a coenzyme essential for energy production from dietary proteins, fats and carbohydrates. It is a component of coenzyme A and of phosphopantetheine, and is therefore essential for Krebs cycle operation. *†
Vitamin B5 is needed at the onset of adrenal hormone production, with it’s conversion into acetyl-C0A. This acetyl-CoA and your own body’s production of cholesterol are the two raw materials needed to produce adrenal hormones. This is recommended as a regular support to assist your body in reestablishing health adrenal function.
The Depke Wellness Prime Adrenal Support may be a useful dietary adjunct for individuals who wish to supplement their diet with generous amounts of pantothenic acid.
