font size

How does Pangamic Acid work?

Since there is no standard identity for the chemicals in pangamic acid, how it might work is unknown. Although pangamic acid is also called vitamin B15, there is no research that shows it is required by the body, as the term "vitamin" would suggest.

Are there safety concerns?

Pangamic acid is considered UNSAFE. Chemicals found in some formulations of pangamic acid may cause cancer.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: It's UNSAFE to use pangamic acid if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. It's difficult to know exactly what chemicals are in the product you are using. Some chemicals found in some formulations can cause birth defects and/or cancer.

Kidney conditions: Pangamic acid can cause kidney stones and other kidney problems, making existing kidney disease worse. Don't use it.
