An Introduction 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. However, it would be a totally different case if you lived somewhere in Russia and Europe where the said vitamin was initially discovered. You might recall that some time in the 1970’s, the FDA banned the vitamin in the United States.
People who try to conduct their own research into the drug have a high chance of being mislead due to some amateur blogs and even professional websites that label Vitamin B15 the incorrect way. Certain websites claim that Vitamin B15 is Pangamic Acid, other assertively claim that it’s Calcium Pangamate instead. 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: 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. The United States defines Vitamin B15 as a Pangamic Acid, meanwhile Russia states that it is calcium pangamate instead.
