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 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. 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. Certain websites claim that Vitamin B15 is Pangamic Acid, other assertively claim that it’s Calcium Pangamate instead. Certain websites also claim that Vitamin B15 is N, N dimethylglycine (DMG). Some websites would use all the terms synonymous: Vitamin B15, DMG, Calcium Pangamate and Pangamic Acid.

For clarification, we stated a short description of each:

1. Pangamic Acid: is taken from dimethyglycine and gluconic acid.
2. Calcium pangamate: Pangamic acid’s calcium salt.
3. N, N Dimethyglycine (DMG): a part of 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.
