An Introduction to Vitamin B15
Vitamin B15 is called other terms like Calcium Pangamate, Pangamic Acid or DMG is surrounding by a thick vale of confusion It’s highly likely that you have heard of the vitamin once or twice before. But it would be a whole different discussion if you reside somewhere in Russia or Europe, the birth place of the vitamin. For those of you who have a difficult time recalling where you heard of it, it might be when the FDA banned the vitamin in the United States way back in the 1970’s.
A fair warning for those that plan on doing a more detailed research regarding Vitamin B15, don’t trust everything you see online; a number of amateur blogs and even certain professional websites have mislabelled Vitamin B15. There are websites that claim Vitamin B15 is none other than Pangamic Acid while others states that Vitamin B15 is actually Calcium Pangamate. Certain websites also claim that Vitamin B15 is N, N dimethylglycine (DMG). DMG, Vitamin B15, Calcium Pangamate and Panagamic Acid are terms that some websites use synonymous.
For clarification, we stated a short description of each:
1. Pangamic Acid: an ester extracted from gluconic acid and dimethyglycine.
2. Calcium pangamate: the calcium salt derived from pangamic acid.
3. N, N Dimethyglycine (DMG): a derivative from amino acid glycine.
Surprisingly, even the geographical location plays a part in the definition of the Vitamin, because it will vary from a certain location compared to the next. Much like when Vitamin B15 is defined as Pangamic acid in the United States, while in Russia calcium Pangamate is synonymous with Vitamin B15.
