Deficiency in Vitamin B5 can have a variety of negative consequences for the body as well as in ones mind. Symptoms of physical malfunctions brought about by lack of Vitamin B5 include fatigue, headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, weakened immune system, abdominal pain, neurological disorders, muscle weakness and cramps, increased insulin sensitivity, acne, digestive problems and slow or retarded growth. Symptoms of a break down in a persons mental capabilities which can be brought about from a lack of Vitamin B5 include depression, personality disorders and change, sleep disturbances and insomnia – which if not attended to immediately and cured, can actually pose as a bigger problem since insomnia can actually cause far greater problems to a person who is already suffering from poor mental health. In general adults should have about 5mg of Vitamin B5 per day with women increasing their daily intake to 6mg to 7mg while theyre pregnant or breastfeeding. Children, depending on their size and weight should have about 2mg to 4mg of Vitamin B5 each day. The importance of the Vitamin B complex to good physical health and proper mental functioning needs to be taught better to people so as to be able to educate them of what theyve been neglecting for so long. For a person to be able to fully utilize not only his physical capabilities but the power of his or her own mind as well, including cognitive functions and emotional responses and stability the standard recommended daily intake levels of these vitamins should be met every single day. Because these are water-soluble vitamins they are washed away daily with the urine and thus the bodys supply of these essential nutrients must be renewed daily.
Nutritional supplements are a reliable and safe way to meet these important nutritional goals provided that proper attention is given to the accepted limits of dosage. Too much of any nutrient can be toxic and can often cause as much damage as having too little. The body is a delicately balanced system and that balance requires to be maintained to function at its best.
