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. 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.
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. Other sources even claim it to be N, N Dimethyglycine or 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: is taken 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.
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.
