Happy Tuesday everybody, it another week and we are here with another new post. Still on the vitamin matter.
Today we will be taking a look at two water-soluble vitamins are Pantothenic acid (B5) and Biotin (B7).
Pantothenic acid (B5)
Pantothenic acid helps the body break down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins so that our bodies can use them for energy and rebuilding tissues, muscles, and organs.
Vitamin B5 has a role in synthesizing coenzyme A.
It helps maintain a healthy digestive system and assists the body in using other vitamins, especially vitamin B2. Vitamin B2 helps manage stress, but there is no evidence that pantothenic acid reduces stress.
Vitamin B5 works as a moisturizer on the skin and enhances the healing process of skin wounds.
It can help lower cholesterol and levels of blood triglycerides or fats.
- Fortified cereals
- Organ meats (liver, kidney)
- Chicken breast
- Nuts, seeds
- Dairy milk
- Brown rice
It is vital for the body’s metabolism and functioning. Biotin is known to promote cell growth and is often a component of dietary supplements used for strengthening hair and nails, as well as those marketed for skincare.
It is found in a number of foods, though in small amounts. This includes walnuts, peanuts, cereals, milk, and egg yolks. Other foods that contain this vitamin are wholemeal bread, salmon, pork, sardines, mushroom and cauliflower. Fruits that contain biotin include avocados, bananas and raspberries. In general, a healthy varied diet provides the body with sufficient amounts of biotin.
However, we will be drawing the curtain for today here and continue next time, but always remember that we at secure health are just a click away.
