Question Best Brand of B5??

What's the best brand of B5 to get? I hear powder form is the best...


Is Acnemiracle brand the best?

well i'm not sure which is the best but i just bought the evolution-x b5, because they have the other b supplements included with the b5 so you don't have to take a b complex multivitamin, while also taking all those b5 pills.

I don't know if a best brand exists, but I'm pretty happy with vitacure (they use the NOW brand I think)

Re: Best Brand of B5??

All brands have worked for me, including NOW, Twinlab, GNC, and Vitamin Shoppe.

What's up with the powder form? Anyone tried that?

Re: Best Brand of B5??

I've only tried two brands but the second seems a lot more effective and is a lot cheaper. I live in the UK and I bought a few bottles of Viridian's B5 which contained only B5. Then I decided there must be cheaper and I ordered Evolution-X's B5 pills over the internet. These are cheaper and contain a lot more added ingredients (as Trev says) that have supposedly been found to assist the B5 in its work. Try this brand.

Re: Best Brand of B5??

I wanted to try powder form 'cos I figured it might somehow spread around better (that's the extent of my biological knowledge ). I did take apart one of the capsules to take the powder out and popped it in my mouth like sherbert powder. The taste is revolting. I don't recommend it

Re: Best Brand of B5??

Are there any health risks with taking large dosages of Vitamin B-5 ?

This question has been asked and answered ad nauseum. Try doing a search on this board for "b5 side effects" or "b5 megadosing."

Re: Best Brand of B5??

Now worked for me, as well as vitamin shoppe (cheapest), twinlab, even gnc worked for me. Vitamine shoppe was the best though because it was the cheapest I could find without using the net. 300 pills for 17.00usd.

geez man...think.

i had one break open when it was halfway down my throat. i couldn't stop coughing for an hour. not because the pill was stuck...but because of the b5. i ended up puking the b5 and the pill back up because i was coughing so violently. and then i had the taste of the powder in my mouth for the rest of the day.

just a thought before anyone else tries to take b5 powder straight down.
