PABA is an antioxidant nutrient that inhibits the formation of the damaging free radicals (unbonded oxygen molecules that cause aging and degeneration). PABA is considered to be one of the B-complex vitamins.
Since unwanted side-effects (including skin rash and fever) are possible at higher quantities, it is best to work with PABA along with a health care professional skilled and knowledgeable in nutritional therapy.
PABA can help in vitiligo repigmentation. Depending on the severity of the problem, recommended dosage varies between 500 and 2000mg, three times daily.
