What is PABA good for?
PABA has several important functions in the body, including contributing to protein metabolism and the formation of red blood cells. PABA is used in the intestinal flora to form folic acid, and also promotes the uptake of folic acid, vitamin B5 and protein from the diet. PABA stands for para aminobenzoic acid and is sometimes referred to as vitamin BX because of its properties reminiscent of B vitamins. That’s why it is often included in supplements with B-complexes.
Where is PABA naturally found?
PABA is to some extent produced by the body itself in the intestines of the bacterial flora. Foods are found in, for example, eggs, liver and sunflower seeds.
Does PABA have side effects?
PABA has no side effects at lower doses. In extreme doses (> 8000 mg) it can cause fever, nausea and liver problems. Always follow the recommended dosing instructions to counteract side effects.
