Vitamin B5, (Pantothenic acid) is an important vitamin for our bodies to grow and properly use carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids and for healthy skin. Pantothenic acid is water-soluble, which means that the body can't store this vitamin. If the body can't use all of the vitamin, the extra vitamins leave the body through the urine. These vitamins must be replaced in the body every day. Pantothenic acid also plays a role in the production of hormones and cholesterol.

Vitamin E helps maintain healthy skin and eyes, and strengthen the body's natural defence against illness and infection. Good sources of vitamin E include: Vegetable oils, corn oil, soya oil, olive oil, Margarine, Nuts and seeds and Leafy greens. Vitamin E is also found in cereals and cereal products. Most people should be able to get all the Vitamin E needed from their diet, and excess Vitamin E is stored in the body for future use.
