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. But it would be a whole different discussion if you reside somewhere in Russia or Europe, the birth place of the vitamin. A handful of you might recall that it became a controversial vitamin back in the 1970’s because FDA banned it 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. Certain websites claim that Vitamin B15 is Pangamic Acid, other assertively claim that it’s Calcium Pangamate instead. Other sources even claim it to be N, N Dimethyglycine or DMG. Lastly, other websites use all the terms to indicate Vitamin B15; Calcium Pangamate, DMG and Pangamic Acid.
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: is technically the calcium salt of the Pangamic Acid.
3. N, N Dimethyglycine (DMG): taken from amino acid glycine.
What’s more confusing is that Vitamin B15 have varying meanings which are mostly based on the geographical location. For example, in the United States Vitamin B15 and Pangamic acid are terms used synonymous while in Russia Vitamin B15 is synonymous with calcium Pangamate.
