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.

Thank you, Bulk Supplements

I appreciate the opportunity to purchase this PABA at a reasonable price and will be including it in my B Complex formulation. I have made some up and will be reviewing again once I have had time to observe the results. I am finding that, as we reach our 60's, appropriate supplementation greatly enhances our vitality. We are nearing two years of using your products and do feel better energy and health with the addition.

Folic acid most readily available in leafy green vegetables. * Maintains skin health * Maintains natural color of hair!!! (RETURNS white hair to its normal life- long color. (In my case -- brown -- will know the color when it grows some more.) * Hair is becoming browner and browner, although the change of color is currently on the back of my head, but inching up to the top of my head! * Hair feels like silk, nice and shiny, and growing faster than weeds in my garden! In 3 weeks, my hair was at the top of my shoulders. Now? About 1/2 way down on my back. Thickening and most shiny. No longer is my brush filling up with shedding hair. * Using 1/16th to 1/4th tsp. daily. * PABA synthesizes folic acid. Folic acid most readily available in leafy green vegetables. * Maintains skin health. * Maintains digestive heath * Supports normal red blood cells, fibrous tissues. * My skin now has a nice rosy color. It has always been albino white. Now, my skin looks healthy * You will absolutely not guess my age either my looking at me, or listening to me when I speak. I have a fresh, vibrantly young voice, and healthy looking skin with few if any wrinkles.
