Now Foods PABA is a dietary supplement with 500 mg of para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) in a capsule. The acid belongs to the vitamins in group B, i.e. water-soluble precursors of many coenzymes - necessary parts of the enzymes that determine the right course of biochemical reactions in the organism.
PABA (para-aminobenzoic or p-aminobenzoic acid) - a compound called vitamin B10, one of non-protein amino acids; it is a part of tetrahydrofolic acid (THF), which is a metabolite of folic acid, performs the function of a coenzyme in many enzymatic reactions and is necessary for purine synthesis and the methylation of homocysteine to methionine.
PABA's effect on skin health:
After entering the organism, PABA co-works with pantothenic acid (additionally, it improves its absorption) and folic acid, providing protection for the pigmentation of external body parts: skin, hair and teeth. It protects from UV radiation and delays the aging of the skin, improving its condition.
PABA restores the natural hair colour:
Moreover, it delays hair greying, as well as prevents it from falling out. Clinical studies have shown its effectivity in 10025% of studied cases. It darkened grey or white hair; however, without continual supplementation, the colour fades after several weeks. Dosages used consisted of 400 mg to 15 g of PABA per day.
In medicine, the esters of p-aminobenzoic acids are used as anaesthetics, namely: procaine (novocaine) and benzocaine. Procaine stops the aging processes, prevents the appearance of wrinkles and hair greying. Benzocaine is used as a topical anaesthetic, it relieves the pain of a sore throat when administered orally.
Other characteristics of PABA:
- it takes part in protein metabolism
- it determines the production of blood cells
- it prevents premature catecholamine breakdown (e.g. adrenaline)
- it fights bacteria
- when administered orally, it stimulates the intestinal microflora to synthesise other vitamins
- it delays the appearance of wrinkles
Symptoms of PABA deficit:
- hair loss
- early hair greying
- a feeling of fatigue
To sum up, Now Foods PABA is a dietary supplement recommended for people who have weak skin and hair, are prone to depression, permanent fatigue or early hair greying. Its effect in stronger when it is connected with folic acid, pantothenic acid and vitamin C.
Vitamin B10 stops the aging process of the skin and prevents hair greying. It is an important coenzyme that takes part in a number of processes in the body and improves immunity. The daily requirement for PABA have not been established, but I recommend taking 1 capsule per day, prophylactically. Preferably with a meal to ensure optimal absorption. PABA is more potent in combination with folic acid and vitamin C. It is interesting that using of PABA stops hair greying. In some cases, the use of dose between 500mg to 15g a day led to darken grey hair. After cessation of supplementation colour faded in a few weeks
