It is also known as niacin (nicotinic acid) and has 2 other forms, niacinamide (nicotinamide) and inositol hexanicotinate, which have different effects from niacin. All B vitamins help the body convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which the body uses to produce energy.

Vitamin B5 (Pantothetic Acid): Vitamin B5, also called pantothenic acid, is one of 8 B vitamins.
