A Guide to Vitamin B15
Out of all the vitamins available to us today, the most confusing one would be Vitamin B15; it’s known by other names such as DMG, Pangamic Acid and Calcium Pangamate Some of these terms might not be all that new to you, since it was the centre of considerable discussions a few years back. People would have heard of a different story regarding the vitamin if they lived in Europe or Russia; these are the places where Vitamin B15 was discovered. You might recall that some time in the 1970’s, the FDA banned the vitamin in the United States.
Be careful when you conduct researches, since certain online sources like professional websites and amateur blogs has incorrectly understood Vitamin B15, thus mislabelling it. 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: is basically an ester derived from dimethyglycine and gluconic acid.
2. Calcium pangamate: Pangamic acid’s calcium salt.
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.
