What’s the best riboflavin supplement? 🤷‍♂️

For years I thought it was riboflavin 5’-phosphate, also known as flavin mononucleotide (FMN). In this episode, I explain why I know believe it is plain old riboflavin.

This episode is brought to you by Vitamins and Minerals 101. This is my new, free, 30-day course that covers the basics of each nutrient, including why it’s important, how to get it from food, how to know if you need more, when you should think about supplementing, and concerns for special diets or special populations. You can get it delivered by Facebook Messenger or email. The Messenger version is taught by Chris Masterbot, my baby bot, is more interactive, and has more jokes and emojis. This requires no background beyond high school and is made for the beginner, but even many experts find it a great refresher and find little golden nuggets in each lesson.

This episode is brought to you by Testing Nutritional Status: The Ultimate Cheat Sheet. I've been through the pain and suffering of embracing a diet because I *thought* it was healthy, only for it to wreck my body and mind. I've been through the path of healing, only to make the mistakes of thinking that what worked best for me would work for everyone, and that what I did to heal would be something I would need to do forever. I've learned the hard way that each of us is unique, and that we all change with time. Your needs are not mine, mine are not what they were ten years ago, and yours won’t be in ten years what they are now. That’s why we need a recipe to know exactly what’s missing, what’s there in excess, and what’s out of balance. It is my mission to empower you to know exactly what your body needs, and to make exactly the right decisions to nourish it.

Pantothenic acid is vitamin B5. You use it to make coenzyme A, a molecule that is central to energy metabolism, most famous for forming acetyl CoA, which lies at the intersection of all anabolic (building up) and catabolic (breaking down) reactions.

Alex Leaf and I team up again, this time to tackle B5.

This is what happens when you don’t have enough:

  • You get fatigue apathy, discomfort, uneasiness, or pain.
  • You get numbness and tingling in the hands and feet.
  • You may get depressed, quarrelsome, childish, or want to spend all day in bed.
  • Your pulse gets higher than you’d expect after minor exertion.
  • Your sleep gets trashed.
  • You get muscle cramps and abdominal cramps, you fart more, and when things get real bad you might throw up.

Much of this can be explained by pantothenic acid’s role in working all of this magic:

  • We use it break down fat, protein, and carbohydrate for energy.
  • We use it to synthesize fatty acids, ketones, and cholesterol.
  • We use it to synthesize all of the steroid hormones, including the sex hormones, the glucocorticoids that regulate blood sugar, and the mineralcorticoids that regulate electrolyte balance and blood pressure.
  • We use it to regulate our use of iron properly, including preventing its accumulation in the brain, where it can cause neurological damage.
  • We use it to make melatonin, which tells our body it’s time to sleep.
  • We use it to make acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter involved in learning, memory, and cognitive performance during periods of sustained, focused attention.
  • We use it to make mucin, which lubricates the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, vagina, penis, and internal organs.
  • We use it to regulate the fasting/feeding cycle by flipping on the genes for autophagy during fasting and flipping on the genes for repair and antioxidant defense during feeding.
  • We use it for quite a few other things too, like the detoxification of some drugs; the synthesis of hemoglobin to prevent anemia; switching on the urea cycle to help us burn protein for energy cleanly; using folate to synthesize DNA, all the major vitamin-derived carriers in the system of energy metabolism, and glycine, an amino acid that acts as a calming, sleep-promoting neurotransmitter, stabilizes blood sugar, and supports collagen synthesis to make your bones strong and your skin smooth.

Burning fat only requires 20% more B5 than burning carbs, which is small compared to how these macros affect riboflavin requirements, However, under conditions of stress you can burn carbohydrate without any B5 at all and you cannot do that with fat. In mice with severe deficiencies of coenzyme A, ketogenic diets dramatically worsen the neurological effects of deficiency.

Although pantothenic acid is named for its presence everywhere and in everything using the Greek word “pantos,” and the common dogma is that no one is deficient, Alex and I make the case in this two-part podcast that suboptimal pantothenic acid status might just be the norm.

And the crazy thing? Official recommendations suggest we only need about 5 milligrams per day. In the podcast we discuss why some people might need GRAMS per day.

Plus, why the FOOD forms might be superior to anything you can get in any supplements on the market.

In part 2, to be released on July 5, we’ll cover how to get pantothenic acid in foods, blood tests, and supplements.

37:14 Roles of coenzyme A

46:02 Roles of 4’-phosphopantetheine

48:12 Burning fat requires 20% more vitamin B5 than burning carbohydrate; and why in the context of severe deficiency of B5 or impairment in the metabolism of B5 a high-fat diet could have devastating consequences.

53:09 The importance of the ratio of acetyl-CoA to free CoA in regulating many metabolic pathways

01:01:02 There are metabolic disorders, such as fatty acid oxidation disorders, that compromise the pool of coenzyme A.

01:03:03 Synthesis of coenzyme A

01:06:47 How coenzyme A synthesis is regulated

01:11:38 Degradation of coenzyme A

01:15:44 The physiology of pantothenic acid absorption

01:29:00 The physiology of pantothenic acid transport in the blood

01:32:11 Cellular uptake of pantothenic acid from the blood

01:33:21 Tissue distribution of pantothenic acid

01:36:00 There may be a particularly high need for pantothenic acid in adolescence.

01:37:01 Mothers actively transfer pantothenic acid to their fetuses and into their milk at their own expense.

01:39:29 Pharmacokinetics of supplementation

01:48:20 A case for why food is superior to supplements for vitamin B5

01:52:41 Inborn errors of coenzyme A metabolism include pantothenate kinase-associated neurodegeneration (PKAN).

Riboflavin is the ultimate fat-burning nutrient. 🔥

Could you need more of it? This episode covers the signs you could need a just a little more, and what it would look like if you started running real low.

This is my new, free, 30-day course that covers the basics of each nutrient, including why it’s important, how to get it from food, how to know if you need more, when you should think about supplementing, and concerns for special diets or special populations. You can get it delivered by Facebook Messenger or email. The Messenger version is taught by Chris Masterbot, my baby bot, is more interactive, and has more jokes and emojis. This requires no background beyond high school and is made for the beginner, but even many experts find it a great refresher and find little golden nuggets in each lesson.

This episode is brought to you by Testing Nutritional Status: The Ultimate Cheat Sheet. I've been through the pain and suffering of embracing a diet because I *thought* it was healthy, only for it to wreck my body and mind. I've been through the path of healing, only to make the mistakes of thinking that what worked best for me would work for everyone, and that what I did to heal would be something I would need to do forever. I've learned the hard way that each of us is unique, and that we all change with time. Your needs are not mine, mine are not what they were ten years ago, and yours won’t be in ten years what they are now. That’s why we need a recipe to know exactly what’s missing, what’s there in excess, and what’s out of balance. It is my mission to empower you to know exactly what your body needs, and to make exactly the right decisions to nourish it.
