When young, children are told again and again to eat certain foods because they’re packed with vitamins and that’s a good thing. When people become adults, they realize that sometimes they need to be more selective about which vitamins they need, especially if they’re deficient in a particular one or ones. To maintain penis health, men need to be sure that their members have access to certain vitamins, include vitamin B5. What is it about this vitamin that can contribute to making or maintaining a healthy penis?
About vitamin B5
As the name might imply, vitamin B5 is part of the family of B vitamins. There are 8 of them, ranging from vitamin B1 to vitamin B12. (Four which were formerly thought of as B vitamins – B4, B8, B10 and B11 are now considered compounds rather than vitamins.) Vitamin B5 is also known as pantothenic acid, by the way.
It’s a water soluble vitamin, meaning that it is not stored in the body as fat soluble vitamins are. Instead, when vitamin B5 enters the body, the body takes it, removes what it needs from it, and then gets rid of the vitamin when you urinate. Water soluble vitamins can be ruined when the foods containing them are exposed to too much heat or by boiling.
So where does a person get vitamin B5? Well, it can be taken in pill form as a dietary supplement. Usually, however, vitamins are more effective if they are part of a person’s regular diet. There are many foods that contain high quantities of vitamin B5, including many mushrooms, salmon, lentils, avocados, sunflower seeds, lean cuts of chicken and beef, and pork chops. (Remember that heat and boiling can significantly diminish the amount of vitamin B5, so be careful in the preparation of these foods.)
Vitamin B5 and Penis health connection
There are many health benefits associated with vitamin B5, including helping with digestive issues, reducing stress, aiding cell metabolism and helping hair color maintain its pigmentation.
Vitamin B5 is associated with helping to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as to help safeguard cardiac health. All of these have a healthy penis benefit because the healthier the heart and the better able it is to pump blood at the appropriate rate, the healthier the penile erection.
In addition, vitamin B5 is thought to increase a person’s stamina in general. As most people realize, sex can be a very tiring activity – and so maintaining stamina can enable a man to utilize his penis during coupling more effectively.
Vitamin B5 is a natural moisturizer for the skin, as well as a healing agent and a protector that helps heal wounds. All of this can have positive consequences in terms of keeping the penis appearing healthy, attractive and enticing to potential partners.
Finally, vitamin B5 is thought to play a role in keeping hemoglobin levels up. Hemoglobin is key to properly delivering oxygen around the body, which keeps tissues (like those found in the penis) healthier.
