Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid C9H17NO5). Pantothenic acid helps your body metabolize food into energy while assisting your liver in metabolizing toxins that can stall your weight loss efforts.
Pantothenic acid is an essential nutrient that supports an important neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. The latter is sometimes called ‘the memory chemical’ because of the role it plays in brain function.
