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. Some of these terms might not be all that new to you, since it was the centre of considerable discussions a few years back. But it would be a whole different discussion if you reside somewhere in Russia or Europe, the birth place of the vitamin. 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.
Be careful when you conduct researches, since certain online sources like professional websites and amateur blogs has incorrectly understood Vitamin B15, thus mislabelling it. There are websites that claim Vitamin B15 is none other than Pangamic Acid while others states that Vitamin B15 is actually Calcium Pangamate. Certain websites also claim that Vitamin B15 is N, N dimethylglycine (DMG). Lastly, other websites use all the terms to indicate Vitamin B15; Calcium Pangamate, DMG and Pangamic Acid.
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.
To add more to the already confusing definition, the meaning of Vitamin B15 can also vary depending on the geographical location. Much like when Vitamin B15 is defined as Pangamic acid in the United States, while in Russia calcium Pangamate is synonymous with Vitamin B15.
