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. You might have already heard of the at least one term for Vitamin B15 over the years. But it would be a whole different discussion if you reside somewhere in Russia or Europe, the birth place of the vitamin. 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.
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. Other sources even claim it to be N, N Dimethyglycine or DMG. Lastly, other websites use all the terms to indicate Vitamin B15; Calcium Pangamate, DMG and Pangamic Acid.
Here’s a brief explanations of each for clarification:
1. Pangamic Acid: an ester extracted from gluconic acid and dimethyglycine.
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. Much like when Vitamin B15 is defined as Pangamic acid in the United States, while in Russia calcium Pangamate is synonymous with Vitamin B15.

Taking into account multiple researches, a 125 mg – 2,500 mg dosage of Vitamin B15 per day is the most common dosage; take note that these amount are taken in divided dosages. 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.
