Vitamin B5, also known as pantothenic acid, is an essential vitamin for the body. It plays an important role in energy production, fatty acid synthesis, and red blood cell formation. Vitamin B5 helps to regulate hormones, boosts the immune system, assists in tissue repair, supports healthy hair and skin, and helps to prevent digestive problems. Vitamin B5 tests can be beneficial to assess an individual’s health and may be used to diagnose a vitamin deficiency, evaluate how the body is processing fats, help diagnose adrenal insufficiencies, and detect and monitor illnesses. Having a Vitamin B5 deficiency can cause fatigue, stomach issues, hair loss, headaches, insomnia, and depression. Estimates from the U.S. Office of Dietary Supplements suggest that 10-20 percent of Americans are at risk for a vitamin B5 deficiency. For these reasons, obtaining a Vitamin B5 test would be important when evaluating an individual’s health.
