Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) is not a B vitamin but is closely associated with the vitamin complex. PABA is water soluble and is considered unique in that it is a "vitamin within in a vitamin", occurring in combination with folic acid. It stimulates the intestinal bacteria, enabling them to produce folic acid, which in turn aids in the production of pantothenic acid.
As a coenzyme, PABA functions in the breakdown and utilization of proteins and in the formation of blood cells, especially red blood cells. PABA plays an important role in determining skin health, hair pigmentation and health of the intestines.
It acts as a sunscreen and is incorporated into some ointments. Excessive sun exposure, photo toxicity, ozone pollution exposure, and rickets disease are all factors that increase the demand for PABA.
