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. 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. You might recall that some time in the 1970’s, the FDA banned the vitamin 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. Certain websites claim that Vitamin B15 is Pangamic Acid, other assertively claim that it’s Calcium Pangamate instead. Meanwhile, even more websites stated that Vitamin B15 is N, N dimethylglycine (DMG). DMG, Vitamin B15, Calcium Pangamate and Panagamic Acid are terms that some websites use synonymous.

Here’s a brief explanations of each for clarification:

1. Pangamic Acid: is basically an ester derived from dimethyglycine and gluconic acid.
2. Calcium pangamate: Pangamic acid’s calcium salt.
3. N, N Dimethyglycine (DMG): taken from 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.
