Without Biotin your body can't properly utilize Pantothenic acid. Biotin also helps your body breakdown and use protein, folic acid, and b12.
If you take a b complex WITH (at the same time) your B5 you will actually hurt the absorbion. Some B Vitamins impare the absorbtion of B5. You should take them seperate. I have read conflicting reports on what exact vitamins, but so far I have heard that B1, B2, B6, B12 hurt the absorbtion of B5.
PS, do a search on Yahoo, or Google for a 'TwinLab pantothenic Acid" and there are a bout 12 stores that offer 55% off Twinlab products.
Usually the cheapest brands are just that, cheap.
