This vitamin is also known as Pantothenic acid. It has been proven to speed up wound healing in animal-testing. It is particularly true when combined with vitamin C. It can be used in treatments for rashes, insect stings and acne due to its skin healing abilities. This is all theory as it has only shown results on mouse models but not human models.
There is also the rumor that it is an “anti-stress” vitamin, and that taking this vitamin daily will help reduce stress. There is only empirical evidence to support this BUT NO ACTUAL SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE HAS PROVED THIS THEORY. Please keep note of this in case you plan to use this as an anti-stress.
