Vitamin B5 May Help Lower Cholesterol

Researchers recently found that supplementation with vitamin B5 significantly lowered Total Cholesterol (TC) and LDL Cholesterol (LDL-C) over and above the effects of diet changes alone.  The trial lasted 4 months and required the participants to take 600-900mg of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). This is a relatively high dose of B5 so you should consult with your Naturopathic Doctor before trying this out.

For more information on how to lower your cholesterol naturally, see you local Naturopath.
