For this reason practitioners often suggest it for those with a demanding lifestyle and inflammatory conditions such as arthritis.

The tablets are formulated by Lamberts so that the vitamin is gradually released over a period of 6 to 8 hours after swallowing so that it more closely matches how a nutrient is released from food during digestion.
Pantothenic acid plays a part in releasing energy from food, and contributes to normal mental performance. It also contributes to the normal synthesis of natural steroid hormones and nerve chemicals called neurotransmitters. Like many of the B vitamins it also contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
The name pantothenic acid comes from the Greek word "pantothen" meaning "from everywhere" and is often referred to as vitamin B5. And whilst the body can't make it (which is part of the definition of being a vitamin); it can be produced from bacteria living in the digestive system, as long as ones system is running smoothly.
