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 Some of these terms might not be all that new to you, since it was the centre of considerable discussions a few years back. People would have heard of a different story regarding the vitamin if they lived in Europe or Russia; these are the places where Vitamin B15 was 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. 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.
For clarification, we stated a short description of each:
1. Pangamic Acid: is taken from dimethyglycine and gluconic acid.
2. Calcium pangamate: the calcium salt derived from pangamic acid.
3. N, N Dimethyglycine (DMG): a derivative 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. For example, in the United States Vitamin B15 and Pangamic acid are terms used synonymous while in Russia Vitamin B15 is synonymous with calcium Pangamate.

The dosages mentioned here are considered as crucial to human physiological metabolism. Based on multiple researches conducted by various people, the most common dosage amount would be 125 mg – 2,500 mg a day; take note that they are typically taken in divided dosages all throughout the day. Many people would rather drink Vitamin B15 with their meals or even on an empty stomach but we suggest that you take the vitamin in between meals. Since Vitamin B15 easily breaks down and enters the body, you should divide the doses per day especially if your aiming for a high dosage.
Researches have stated that people have an exceptionally high tolerance for Vitamin B15. Intake of doses as high as 6,000 mg a day have been recorded without any sign of problems of toxicity, so it’s quite a safe nutrient.
