A Guide to Vitamin B15
Because of the sheer number of vitamins available to us in the market, it can be confusing to know exactly what you need but the most confusing one would be Vitamin B15; DMG, Calcium Pangamate or DMG are the other names of Vitamin B15. You might have already heard of the at least one term for Vitamin B15 over the years. 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. Meanwhile, even more websites stated that Vitamin B15 is N, N dimethylglycine (DMG). Some websites would use all the terms synonymous: Vitamin B15, DMG, Calcium Pangamate and Pangamic Acid.
Here’s a brief explanations of each for clarification:
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): taken 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.
