Pantothenic acid, Vitamin B5, works in the body to increase energy levels, support the immune system and relieve stress. It converts choline into acetycholine an essential chemical responsible for transmitting signals between nerves and muscle tissue.

As all other B Vitamins do, B5 plays a role in the conversion of food and stored fats into energy and the production of acetylcholine which enhances the performance of the nervous systems.

Like many B group Vitamins B5 is easily destroyed by food processing and natural sources such as whole grains, nuts should be consumed unprocessed as cooking, preserving and freezing reduces up to 50% of Vitamin B5.

Choline: A Syrup included in the B-complex vitamins. Crucial in the metabolism of fat this compound is often used to treat liver disease.

Choline is the basic component of acetycholine, an essential neurotransmitter. Choline also combines with inositol to form lectithin.

Choline prevents the build up of fat in the liver and assists with the movement of fats in cells.

Sources are organ meats like liver, brains and kidneys, egg yolk, wheat germ and brewer's yeast.

Choline is used as a base for many cosmetic products and occurs in both plant and animal products and is widely used to feed poultry and other animals. Although it can be free it is often in combination with lectithin.


Acetycholine: A neurotransmitting cholinergic formed by the interaction of Vitamin B5 with choline. Acetycholine facilitates synaptic fuction of the nervous system and transmissions to muscles. Atropine interferes and blocks this function.

Acetycholine, as essential as it may be, is constantly destroyed by an enzyme that functions as a cleaner after the neurotransmission activity of acetycholine is completed by turning it into choline and acetate. The body is therefore constantly manufacturing acetycholine.

Acetycholine is a vasodilator and cardiac depressant and stimulates the vagus nerve but is rarely used therapeutically for this purpose as it has such a short life.
