Wouldn’t you like to know that two of the B-Complex vitamins help in the prevention of cancer and diseases such as Fibromyalgia?
These vitamins also support recovery from alcohol and drug addiction.
All other animals instinctively know that these two vitamins B15 and B17 are nature’s health tools.
You can still get these two vitamins from natural foods, but they were outlawed in supplements in the United States decades ago, and are still removed from the B-Complex vitamin supplement today, and are not included in manufactured health foods.
This article focuses on B15, and check out my newsletter for more articles on B17 and cancer prevention.
Vitamin B15 is also known as Pangamic Acid, and this B vitamin is controversial in America primarily because of the cancer industry.
Pangamic Acid is not available in the USA because the FDA took B15 products off the market over four decades ago. However, the FDA has been monitoring the wide range of medical conditions treated with B15 in other countries.
Hum, I wonder why …
Russia has been the most progressive country using B15, believing it to be a very important nutrient treating a multitude of symptoms and diseases. Russian scientists have shown Pangamic Acid reduces the buildup of lactic acid in athletes, and thereby, lessens muscle fatigue and increases endurance.
I can understand why this vitamin can assist with Fibromyalgia.
B15 is used regularly in Russia for many health issues, including:
- Alcoholism/Drug addiction
- Aging and senility
- Minimal brain damage in children
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Skin diseases
- Liver disease
- Chemical poisonings
Dimethyl glycine (DMG) has been used in the United States as a substitute for B15 because it is believed to increase Pangamic Acid production in the body. Dimethyl glycine combines with gluconic acid to form Pangamic Acid, so DMG is considered to be the active component of Pangamic Acid.
Pangamic Acid is found in:
- Whole grains such as brown rice
- Brewer’s yeast
- Pumpkin and sunflower seeds
- Apricot kernels
- Beef blood
- B15 helps in the formation of specific amino acids such as methionine;
- It plays a role in the oxidation of glucose in cell respiration;
- Lowers blood cholesterol;
- Improves circulation and general oxygenation of cells and tissues;
- Like vitamin E, it acts as an antioxidant helping to lengthen cell life through its protection from oxidation;
- Pangamic Acid mildly stimulates the endocrine and nervous systems;
- Enhances liver function;
- Helps in the detoxification process;
- Helpful for arteriosclerosis and hypertension – some of America’s most common diseases.
Premature Aging And Hangovers
In Europe, vitamin B15 has been used to treat premature aging because of both its circulatory stimulus and its antioxidant effects. It helps protect the body from pollutants, especially carbon monoxide. B15 (and possibly DMG) offers support for anyone living in a large polluted city or under high-stress.
As previously mentioned, in Russia, Pangamic Acid is used in treating alcohol dependency and is believed to reduce alcohol cravings. It has been reported to diminish hangovers.
B15 is used to treat fatigue, as well as asthma and rheumatism, and it even has some anti-allergic properties. Some child psychiatrists have reported good results using Pangamic Acid with emotionally disturbed children; it is used to stimulate the speaking ability and related mental functions. B15 may also be a helpful nutrient to use when getting a vaccination, but more precise research is needed.
Even though it was freely used as a supplement through the 1970s, B15 is still prevented in mainstream foods and vitamins in the United States.
The most common form of Pangamic Acid is calcium pangamate, which appears as dimethyl glycine (DMG), the active component hailed in Russia. Pangamic Acid, B15 or DMG, is often taken with vitamins E and A. The average dose of DMG is 50-100 mg. taken twice daily, usually with breakfast and dinner. This level can improve your general energy levels, support your immune system, and reduce alcohol cravings, making it very helpful in moderating chronic alcohol problems.
Years ago I wrote a health book about B15 and B17, used many decades ago by Dr. John Richardson, M.D. to treat his cancer patients. Sadly, the AMA shut his practice down for using these two vitamins in cancer treatments, and he could no longer legally use these healing nutrients. Over the years, holistic health awareness has expanded worldwide, and many suppressed natural health solutions are now available on the Internet.
Dr. Richardson’s sons documented their father’s work, and they formed the company Apricot Power, offering both B15 and B17 supplements, plus other natural health products available online. Over time, B15 and B17 have become more readily available primarily due to better information via the worldwide web. My book, The Richardson Cancer Prevention Diet, is also available online.
