The secret of vitamin B-17

Vitamin B17 (amygdalin or Laetrile) is a cure for cancer.

Amygdalin was first discovered in 1830 in bitter almonds. Ernst. T. Krebs, Jr. (1912 - 1996) was a chemist who first promoted the amygdalin as a cancer drug in early 1950. From amygdalina made semisynthetic distillate calling it vitamin B17 or Laetrile. Today it is often called leatrile or vitamin B17 considers himself amygdalin in the natural form found in the kernels of apricot, apple and other natural sources of this vitamin. The theory of treating cancer with vitamin B17 is based on the fact that the occurrence of cancer or tumors result of malnutrition, in particular the lack of important vitamins (B17) and other minerals, such as scurvy was the result of a similar lack of vitamin C.

The fact is that the 'modern' man called. Western civilization vulnerable to cancer than the 'primitive' cultures. Krebs as one of the possible explanations for the fact that states such as members of the tribe of Hunza consume a day 250-3000 mg of vitamin B17 in contrast to the average American or European is that the normal 'Western' industrial  food gets an average of 2mg nitrilozida (vitamin B17).

Hunza tribe of the ancient tribe steady in northern Pakistan, whose members typically experience over 100 years, and for cancer as a disease do not know. Their food has a rich share of vitamin B17. The richness of the Hunza tribe to measure the amount of apricot trees, which has more trees, a prominent member of the tribe, and richer, because they are pitted dried apricots special delicacy. Dried apricots are pitted richest nitrilozidom (vitamin B17).

After detailed studies of the properties and action of vitamin B17 to patients with cancer Krebs has gathered enough evidence to promote a vitamin B17 as a cure for cancer, are registered numerous cases of successful cure of cancer with high doses of vitamin B17. Dr. John A. Richardson, and Dr. Harold Manner successfully applied vitamin B17 therapy in patients with cancer in terminal phase, confirming the theory of Krebs. Dean Burk eminent biochemist Nacional in the American Institute for Cancer Research was supported by vitamin B17 after successful experiments on animals. Linus Pauling declares that supports the use of vitamin B17 in the treatment of cancer (The New England Journal of Medicine, 8 July 1982).

However, this has alarmed patrons 'Cancer Industry' which earns a billion dollars annually to this disease. The worst thing for the medical-pharmaceutical criminal association is the fact that vitamin B17 was effective in the fight against cancer, it can not be patented, inexpensive and easily available to everyone.

Krebs has been discredited and was declared a fraud. 'The respected medical' experts declared laetrile sophisticated and meanly fraud in the treatment of cancer in medical history. John Richardson he was even indicted. As an epilogue to all United States Agency for Food and Drug FDA (Food and Drug Agency) declared laetrile hazardous substances and prohibits the sale, manufacture, importation and testing of more alive. The prohibition applies even today in the U.S. and Australia.

The story of vitamin B17 is a typical small struggle honest man in the unselfish desire to help his fellow man comes into conflict with the mafia. This story is a lot of time was carefully hidden under the carpet, even though there are plenty of articles on the Internet on Leatrila, in the light of daily appeals to the public for help oncology departments, humanitarian actions to collect money for cancer research, an appeal for the purchase of expensive drugs to cancer patients, I think it is worth re-activate the story of vitamin B17.

  Mode of action

Vitamin B17 is composed of 1 molecule benzaldehyde (benzaldehyde), 1 hidrocijanida molecules (HCN - hydrogen cyanide) and 2 molecules of glucose (sugar). Benzaldehyde and cyanide are toxic elements, but in combination with vitamin B17 molecules of glucose are inert (locked) or no toxicity. To the cyanide and benzaldehyde could break free from vitamin B17 is needed to obtain specific contact with the enzyme beta-glycosides (betaglucosidase). This enzyme is present everywhere in the human body, but most of it is in cancer cells (up to 3000 times more).

The principle of operation is simple: the cancer cells for their growth need huge amounts of energy, or glucose (sugar). When vitamin B17 is consumed, the cancer cells looking for glucose abosrbiraju glucose molecules of vitamin B17, as the enzyme beta-glycosides 'unlocked' benzaldehyde and cyanide from vitamin B17, causing his death. Due to its high concentration of the enzyme beta-glycoside and the great demand of cancer cells for glucose, we can say that vitamin B17 is a precision-guided drug that highly lethal to cancer cells, while the other healthy cells are not toxic. Principle of vitamin B17 is reminiscent of the Trojan horse:  cancer cells gobble for glucose and are absorbed when it terminated.

The enzyme beta-glycoside is present everywhere in the human body, so it is possible to 'unlock' toxic elements cyanide and benzaldehyde to a lesser extent occurs and where the healthy cells. The human body has natural mechanisms for detoxification enzymes by rodenaze (rhodenase). This enzyme allows healthy cells to neutralize the cyanide and convert it into tiocianat (thiocyanate), while benzaldehyde is converted to benzoic acid. Both by-product excreted through urine. Rodenaze enzyme is not present in cancer cells because they have no such 'protection'.

It is precisely this mechanism to secure the neutralization of toxic elements cyanide and benzaldehyde from vitamin B17 medical establishment based their attacks on the effectiveness of vitamin B17. Indeed the existence of molecules of cyanide in vitamin B17 is used as an excuse to declare this combination of highly toxic and ban for human consumption. This happened even though no research has not confirmed this hypothesis, while on the other hand, independent studies confirmed the hypothesis of a safe detoxification of cyanide and benzaldehyde and their effectiveness against cancer.


Because of the possibility of the body to safely neutralize any free cyanide and benzaldehyde molecules that are not spent for the destruction of cancer cells, the consumption of vitamin B17 must be accurately conveyed. Vitamin B17 can be consumed in its natural form (apricot kernel), which is the best in the purified state as pills or intravenously.

Dr. Krebs recommends taking vitamin B17 in its natural form. Pitted apricots are the best source of vitamin B17, because apart from the vitamin B17 also contains other nutrients. The general recommendation is to not eat more than apricot pits as much as we can of whole apricots eaten within one hour. Translated, this means a maximum of 5 apricot seeds within an hour or a maximum of 35 pips in one day for an adult. The daily dose is 1 pitted / 2.5kg weight. We would recommend for the prevention of the consumption of 5 apricot seeds per day.

However, the consumption of stones in patients with cancer have less effect without the full implementation of metabolic therapy based on intravenous vitamin B17 along with certain enzymes and other vitamins. This therapy is expensive and is performed only in a clinic doctor Dr. Ernesto Contreras Rodriguez at the clinic Oasis of Hope Hospital in Tijuana Mexico.

  Sources of vitamin B17

Vitamin B17 is found in millet, maize, Article, bitter almond, cashew nuts, seeds of apple, lemon, cherry, plum, pear and breksve. Almost all the seeds from the rose family (Rosaceae) with B17. The biggest source of vitamin B17 are pitted apricot (apricot) and manioc (cassava root). Often faced with the fact that the member (flax seed) exceptional source of health, and now here it is mentioned as a source of vitamin B17. Lan is almost unusable if you just swallow the seeds, it is recommended to grind the seeds before eating.

Apricot seeds are currently available:

There is a very broad range of apricot kernels available that encompass the entire spectrum of amygdalin content - from very little, to quite a lot. The bitterness of an apricot kernel is indicative of its amygdalin content. Both sweet and bitter varieties contain quantities of amygdalin. However, people don’t realize the significant range of amygdalin content of the apricot kernels being sold as “bitter” varieties.

45 apricot kernels of one variety are all that is required for a daily dose of 1,500 mg of amygdalin. This is a dose that falls within a therapeutic range. In another variety of “bitter” apricot kernels, 200 kernels would have to be consumed in order to achieve similar quantities. However, the people using this variety are still adhering to common dosage guidelines, which means, at best, they’re likely only receiving 80-100 mg of amygdalin, and that’s at 45 apricot kernels per day.

The variety of bitter apricot kernel is critical to their efficacy. The wrong variety will simply not work.

I talk about this in more detail on my own blog at

My mission is to promote apricot kernels correctly. There is so much misinformation online regarding apricot kernels, a large percentage of users aren't giving themselves the best chance they have. I want to clear up some of these myths and misconceptions and attempt to level out the terrain. Apricot kernels absolutely deserve respect in the realm of alternative therapies, but the propagation of misinformation will continue to mar their reputation and their efficacy.
