What You Need to Know About 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. However, it would be a totally different case if you lived somewhere in Russia and Europe where the said vitamin was initially discovered. A handful of you might recall that it became a controversial vitamin back in the 1970’s because FDA banned it 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. Various sources have stated that Vitamin B15 is Pangamic Acid, on the other hand some would claim that the vitamin is actually Calcium Pangamate. 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.
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): a part of amino acid glycine.
What’s more confusing is that Vitamin B15 have varying meanings which are mostly based on the geographical location. The United States defines Vitamin B15 as a Pangamic Acid, meanwhile Russia states that it is calcium pangamate instead.
