An Introduction to Vitamin B15

Out of all the vitamins available to us today, the most confusing one would be Vitamin B15; it’s known by other names such as DMG, Pangamic Acid and Calcium Pangamate Some of these terms might not be all that new to you, since it was the centre of considerable discussions a few years back. However, it would be a totally different case if you lived somewhere in Russia and Europe where the said vitamin was initially 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.

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. Certain websites also claim 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: is taken from dimethyglycine and gluconic acid.
2. Calcium pangamate: Pangamic acid’s calcium salt.
3. N, N Dimethyglycine (DMG): a derivative from amino acid glycine.

What’s more confusing is that Vitamin B15 have varying meanings which are mostly based 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.
