Today we will discuss B5 or pantothenic acid, an essential nutrient and a water-soluble B vitamin.

Vitamin B2 is also known as Riboflavin and similarly to B1 it’s main role is to help extract energy from the food we eat. However opposite to B1, B2 specializes in burning fat since burning fat requires almost twice as much riboflavin as burning carbs. Let’s learn about the fat-burning Riboflavin !
