DATA ON VITAMIN D AND GUT FLORA:
Dr. Berg talks about the importance of vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) on a keto and intermittent fasting plan. B5 is needed to support enzymes for energy metabolism from carbs, protein and especially fat. When you are in keto-adaptation, you need B5. Vitamin B5 helps support the production of melatonin (sleep hormone), acetylcholine to help you feel awake during the day and REM sleep at night; and in the production of cortisol (an adrenal hormone). If you are deficient in B5, the main symptom will be fatigue, however, it also may be inflammation, stress and insomnia. Typically B5 is in our foods, but if your gut flora, the friendly bacteria is incomplete, there will be less B-vitamins made. Your gut flora also need vitamin D to function and low D3 will less the microorganisms that are needed to make B5 leading to a deficiency.
Today we are going to talk about the importance of Vitamin B5 on Keto and Intermittent Fasting Plan. The name of the vitamins is Pantothenic Acid and it is a cofactor of energy metabolism specifically for the enzymes that help you breakdown fat. When you are converting from sugar burning to ketosis by burning fat, you need vitamin B5 big time. The Greek word for this vitamin is “Pantothen” which means “from all quarters” indicating that it is very easy to get from all your foods. When you read on this vitamin you are going to find that it is almost impossible to be deficient because it is everywhere but actually a lot of people are deficient on this. It is a key nutrient that help you make melatonin for sleeping, acetylcholine which is a neurotransmitter that helps you stay awake during the day and helps you get into realm sleep, and also the nerve and muscle function, it is also needed to make cortisol, and a key nutrient to adrenal function. If you are deficient in vitamin B5, you get all sorts of issues like keto fatigue, stress, neuro pain, inflammation, and insomnia. These are the common symptoms when you do a ketogenic diet because the body is requiring more of this vitamin when it actually has to burn more fat.
