Researchers recently found that supplementation with vitamin B5 significantly lowered Total Cholesterol (TC) and LDL Cholesterol (LDL-C) over and above the effects of diet changes alone. The trial lasted 4 months and required the participants to take 600-900mg of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). This is a relatively high dose of B5 so you should consult with your Naturopathic Doctor before trying this out.
