Orotic acid is a heterocyclic compound and an acid; it is also known aspyrimidinecarboxylic acid. Historically it was believed to be part of the Vitamin B complex and was called vitamin B13, but it is now known that it is not a vitamin.

The compound is manufactured in the body by intestinal flora. It is sometimes used as amineral carrier in some dietary supplements (to increase their bioavailability), most commonly for lithium orotate.
