Pantothenate - Vitamin B5 is a key player in fat burning and metabolism is depleted during stressful times, so it plays a role in stress-related weight gain. A deficiency in B5 impairs the function of the adrenal glands.
Vitamin C - helps to support the health function of the adrenal glands, which produce cortisol during times of stress. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant that helps to neutralize excess free radicals and helps to protect the immune system
