antibiotics and sulpha drugs can destroy the natural bacteria that are required to produce PABA and other B complex vitamins.
Various skin and hair conditions may be due to a prolonged deficiency of PABA, as it protects natural hair and skin colour, prevents premature greying of the hair, ageing and wrinkling of the skin.
A general Vitamin B complex deficiency also contributes to these factors. PABA is world famous now for its role as a sunblock. It protects against sunburn and, as a cream, may be used to treat conditions of sunburn.
