B15 in water soluble. It is not a vitamin in the strict sense and essential requirements for diet has not been proved. I want to keep it here because of its ability to speed recovery from fatigue. Qualities also linked to other B vitamins like B3 who can increase energy through proper utilisation of food , B4 that helps alleviate fatigue, B5 that can prevent fatigue and B12 that can increase energy. B15 works much like vitamin E in that it is an antioxidant.
Action is often improved by being taken with vitamins A and E.

Function of vitamin B 15

According to Earl Mindell’s New vitamin bible B15 can extend life span of cells. Neutralise craving for liquor and protect the liver from cirrhosis and it works to ward off hangovers. It works in recovery from fatigue. B15 can lower blood cholesterol levels and protect against pollutants and can therefore relieve symptoms of angina and asthma. B15 also referred to as DMG can stimulate immunity responses and aid in protein synthesis.

Foods rich in vitamin B 15

Brewer’s yeast, whole brown rice, whole grains, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds. Because its essential requirement for diet has not been proved there is no list of foods available.

Signs of deficiency

There is limited research on B15 but indications point to glandular and nerve disorders, heart disease and diminished oxygenation of living tissue.

Signs of excess

There have been no reported cases of toxicity according to Earl Mindell’s New vitamin bible. Some people say they have experienced nausea on beginning a B15 regimen, but this usually disappears in few days and can be alleviated by taking B15 after the day’s largest meal.

Recommended daily dosage

Not established.
Daily dose often used are 50-150mg.
