Clinical Study Title:
Availability of vitamin B6 and pantothenate in an average American diet in man.
|Plain English Summary:|
|This study looked at the diet and health of American men in terms of the intake of vitamins B5 and B6. Participants were given diet instructions and their intake of the various vitamins was examined. Using this specified diet, the vitamin B5 availability averaged 50% of the recommended daily value. The availability of the vitamin B6 averaged 71% of the recommended daily value. The average diet then does not meet daily requirements of either vitamin B5 or B6. This supports the use of a daily supplement to compensate for these deficiencies.|
