Para-AminoBenzoic Acid (PABA) Powder
PABA is so nutritious that it was once considered a vitamin unto itself due to the fact that it can serve as a provitamin to several types of bacteria. Due to the fact that the human body cannot manufacture Folate through use of PABA (something which all other elements classified as vitamins can do) it was found that this should not actually be considered a vitamin. This does not make it any less important though, as it was also determined that PABA remains essential in the metabolic process.
Para-Aminobenzoic Acid is even referred to as Vitamin Bx informally despite the fact that it is not classified as either a vitamin or a nutrient with essential properties. It is called this because it is included in the family of the Vitamin B complex, but is not, itself, part of the normal Vitamin B chain. It is merely a constituent of Folacin.
Health Benefits Provided by Para-Aminobenzoic Acid
PABA has antioxidant properties and may help protect against damage done by free radical molecules which can be quite harmful to healthy cells. These come into being during periods when the body is undergoing oxidative stress. It may also help maintain healthy oxygen levels in the blood and help to maintain healthy levels of electrolytes and red blood cells.
Since PABA may help increase rates of protein synthesis, this makes it an ideal supplement for people seeking to build up muscle mass.
