Description: Vitamin B5 is a component of coenzyme A (CoA) which is needed for the destruction of toxins in the liver and for the manufacture of neurotransmitters. Also, pantothenic acid is useful in making fatty acids for use in the myelin sheath and for making phospholipids. However, extremely large dosages (above 10,000 mg/day) have been shown to cause diarrhea.
