One of the known nutrients that are needed by the body is the PABA vitamins. What most people do not know is PABA is not really a vitamin. Rather, it is a form of folic acid. PABA is also known as Para-aminobenzoic acid.


PABA actually does a lot for the body. For instance, it assists in the creation of folic acid and red blood cells, it helps in breaking down protein that are in the body and lastly, it has a lot of anti oxidant actions that can break down toxins and lead the toxins out of the body.


There are some therapeutic benefits that are associated with PABA. PABA is used for the treatment of Peyronie’s disease. For those who do not know, Peyronie’s disease is a condition that affects the male sexual organ. It causes problems in urination and erection. People with this condition were given PABA vitamins and supplements and a good amount of them became better.


PABA is also associated in making a person more fertile. There are not enough studies to really state the reason why this happens but some experts agree that it is probably because of the production of folic acid that can cause fertility.


PABA can also make you look younger because it helps in stopping the hair from turning gray. It also helps in preventing hair loss. We do know that Vitamin B is essential in making the hair healthy and since PABA is a form of B vitamin, it will surely help in keeping the hair healthy and shiny.


It has already been mentioned above that PABA contains some anti oxidant properties. Because of this, PABA is also good for the skin. Some sunscreens have PABA properties because it can alter some of the harmful effects caused by the sun’s rays.


Do remember that there is a limit to the amount of PABA vitamins that you can take in a day. It is recommended that you only take below 8gm. Any amount above that can be toxic for you.


PABA is also associated with some side effects such as skin rash, nausea, anorexia, diarrhea, vomiting, and fever. If this occurs, all you have to do is stop using the supplements and the effects will stop.


Do remember that even though PABA is not considered an essential nutrient, it can actually give you a lot of health benefits. It would be up to you to decide if you would want it to be a part of your diet or not. If it is mixed with other healthy vitamins and nutrients, you will notice a good, dramatic change in your health.
