Vitamin B5 is already well established for adrenal and stress support—and is now being increasingly recognised as a great clinical tool for Acne support

Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) supplementation has been shown to significantly reduce acne within just 12 weeks of supplementation.

Acne patients with poor facial skin tend to have reduced quality of life with regard to dissatisfaction about appearance, social impacts and even co-morbid depression.(i)  These psychological effects are not necessarily related to its clinical severity, as even mild acne can be significantly disabling.  Acne can affect people of all ages but it predominantly occurs during the teenage years.

Approximately 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 24 experience at least mild acne.(ii)
As such, this safe and well tolerated water-soluble B vitamin is becoming a popular choice for practitioners in dealing with moderate to severe acne in patients, after numerous reports of success in private clinics as well as emerging public clinical studies that strengthen claims that this vitamin is a valid clinical tool to assist patients struggling with acne related conditions.
