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 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.
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. Other sources even claim it to be N, N Dimethyglycine or DMG. Some websites would use all the terms synonymous: Vitamin B15, DMG, Calcium Pangamate and Pangamic Acid.
Here’s a brief explanations of each for clarification:
1. Pangamic Acid: an ester extracted from gluconic acid and dimethyglycine.
2. Calcium pangamate: is technically the calcium salt of the Pangamic Acid.
3. N, N Dimethyglycine (DMG): a part of 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. The United States defines Vitamin B15 as a Pangamic Acid, meanwhile Russia states that it is calcium pangamate instead.
