A Guide 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 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. 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.

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. 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. DMG, Vitamin B15, Calcium Pangamate and Panagamic Acid are terms that some websites use synonymous.

For clarification, we stated a short description of each:

1. Pangamic Acid: is basically an ester derived from dimethyglycine and gluconic acid.
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. Much like when Vitamin B15 is defined as Pangamic acid in the United States, while in Russia calcium Pangamate is synonymous with Vitamin B15.
