On Vitamins: My Rationale Explained

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. 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.

People who try to conduct their own research into the drug have a high chance of being mislead due to some amateur blogs and even professional websites that label Vitamin B15 the incorrect way. There are websites that claim Vitamin B15 is none other than Pangamic Acid while others states that Vitamin B15 is actually Calcium Pangamate. 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: Pangamic acid’s calcium salt.
3. N, N Dimethyglycine (DMG): taken from amino acid glycine.

To add more to the already confusing definition, the meaning of Vitamin B15 can also vary depending on the geographical location. The United States defines Vitamin B15 as a Pangamic Acid, meanwhile Russia states that it is calcium pangamate instead.
