Pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5) daily dose

Physiologic roles: сonstituent of co-enzyme A and phosphopantetheine involved in fatty acid metabolism. Deficiency: fatigue, sleep disturbances, impaired coordination, and nausea. The widespread occurrence of releasable pantothenic acid in food makes a dietary deficiency unlikely. If a deficiency occurs, it is usually accompanied by deficits of other nutrients. Toxicity is not a problem with pantothenate.
