Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)
Recommended daily allowance: 10 mg (milligrams)

Symptoms of deficiency: Excessive fatigue, insomnia, loss of appetite.

Benefits: Detoxifies our bodies from harmful man-made compounds found in herbicides, insecticides and drugs. Aids the body in releasing the energy from foods. May help treat alcoholism, fatigue and stomach ulcers.

Good food sources: Whole grains, mushrooms, salmon, peanuts, meats, eggs, soybeans, liver, brewer's yeast. Cautions: Don't take if you take levodopa for Parkinson's disease. Consult your doctor if you have hemophelia.

Substance interactions: Pantothenic acid counteracts levodopa's effect.

Signs of toxicity: Very low toxicity.

* The elderly, heavy drinkers and people who take cholesterol-lowering drugs are the most likely to have a deficiency.

* The best source is in unprocessed whole grains, fortified cereals, and multivitamin/mineral supplements. Half of pantothenic acid is destroyed by food processing and cooking.

* Pregnant and breast feeding women may want to increase their daily intake, however, mega-doses aren't advised.
