Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is part of the B-vitamin complex and is essential for healthy adrenal and immune function. In particular, pantothenic acid serves as the starting material for the synthesis of coenzyme A, which is important for metabolism of fats and synthesis of adrenal hormones. Pantothenic acid plays a key role in the formation of acetylcholine, which is needed in the transmission of nerve impulses. Thorne supplies 225 mg of pantothenic acid in each capsule of B-Complex #5 in addition to a blend of B vitamins. This formula provides support for those who not only require a good vitamin B-complex but who may also need extra adrenal support.
Thorne's B-Complex #5 supplies 225 mg of pantothenic acid and the bioactive forms of the other B vitamins in each capsule to ensure you get the most bioavailable B-complex available.
B-Complex #5 consists of a group of eight water-soluble compounds: thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), cobalamin (vitamin B12), folate, and biotin. Although each B vitamin is chemically distinct, they often work together in various biochemical functions throughout the body – from cellular energy production, to healthy red-blood-cell formation, to healthy neurological function. Most B vitamins, with the exception of vitamin B12, are not stored in the body; consequently, they must be acquired daily from the diet in order to maintain optimal health.
Supplementing with active B vitamins is extremely important to everyone, especially individuals who may not be able to convert non-active vitamins to their active forms in the liver because of compromised liver function, poorly functioning enzymes, digestive disturbances, or age. Dietary supplements containing these active cofactors have enhanced bioavailability, ensuring the body gets the nutrients it needs.
Take 1 capsule one to three times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

Capsules are easy to swallow. Happy to have found a b-complex that contains methylobalamin as b12.
This is great price for a good quality B complex with extra B12 for stressed out people and extra Pantothenic acid (B5) for adrenal support. Not sure how well it's working as I'm taking a few other supplements but I am feeling more energetic. I'm also getting lots of rest, laughter and gentle exercise to help my adrenals. I'm also taking Nature's Way, Pantothenic Acid 250 mg on top of this.
Favorite B complex (discontinued)

Very disappointed to see that this B complex has been discontinued as it has been well tolerated by my body where most have not. Looks like I will have to go back to purchasing single B vitamins to produce this mix.

For over 30 years, I have tried numerous brands of b-complex and have not experienced the benefits that a person is supposed to get and I could not figure out why. I thought I would give this product a try and I am so happy that I did. The THORNE b-complex is the first one ever in which I have noticed the benefits that the b-vitamins are supposed to provide. I plan to continue with this product.
most suitable for me
