An Introduction 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. 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. 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.
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. Meanwhile, even more websites stated that Vitamin B15 is N, N dimethylglycine (DMG). DMG, Vitamin B15, Calcium Pangamate and Panagamic Acid are terms that some websites use synonymous.
We hope these short descriptions can help clarify certain things:
1. Pangamic Acid: an ester extracted from gluconic acid and dimethyglycine.
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. 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.
