Did you know that there are eight different B vitamins?1 And each one has a range of healthful benefits and positive effects for the human body and its various systems. The eight B vitamins are:
- Thiamine (B1)
- Riboflavin (B2)
- Niacin (B3)
- Pantothenic acid (B5)
- Pyridoxine (B6)
- Biotin (B7)
- Folate (B9)
- Cobalamin (B12)
Each B vitamin has its own strengths. None of the B vitamins should be ignored in one’s pursuit of healthy living. With that in mind, a great way to get the most out of the B vitamins is to take a daily B vitamin, (also called a multivitamin), in the form of a dietary supplement. Taken once per day with food, such supplementation can provide the body with most of the benefits of B vitamins.
However, there is one B vitamin that stands out, one that should be utilized differently. This is speaking of course of vitamin B5, the incredible B vitamin that promotes healthy skin growth.
Vitamin B5 – Nature’s Gift to the Skin
Vitamin B5 is probably best known for its ability to help the body process food. Vitamin B5 assists in metabolizing fats, proteins, enzymes, carbohydrates, etc. Some experts even suggest that vitamin B5 can help boost energy levels,2 simply by aiding the body in metabolizing food.
But vitamin B5 does a whole lot more than just break down food. Vitamin B5 also promotes the growth of healthy skin, hair, and nails. B5 even benefits the eyes and liver, two organ systems that sometimes need extra nourishment.
This fantastic little vitamin is usually administered via a dietary supplement. We also see the vitamin crop up in several food types, such as eggs, milk, yogurt, cabbage, kale, avocado, cheese, nuts, broccoli, liver, kidneys, and apples. However, to capitalize on Vitamin B5’s benefits for healthy skin, the vitamin is best administered in the form of a topical cream. And for maximum benefit to the skin, some experts recommend a combination of topical application and daily B5 supplements.
One study3 even found that the use of vitamin B5 supplements helped patients with mild to moderate acne. In the study, the daily use of B5 supplements helped reduce acne lesions. But imagine the potential added benefits of utilizing daily supplementation along with a soothing, calming, itch-relief, and dry skin-relief topical cream?
And not only does vitamin B5 (when used in a topical cream) promote healthy, youthful, glowing skin, but it can also be used to remedy unpleasant skin conditions in addition to acne. According to healthline,4 vitamin B5-infused skin cream can be used to treat baldness, dandruff, dry skin, flaky itchy, or red skin, damaged hair, eczema, and even diaper rash.
And while it is true that Vitamin B5 can provide some of these benefits when taken in the form of a dietary supplement, this is not necessarily the best way to use the vitamin. For maximum results, most people prefer taking vitamin B5 in the form of a psoriasis lotion, eczema cream, or natural face moisturizer.
