The hidden vitamin B17 amygdalin laetrile

by | Nutrition

“The ultimate reason for resistance to an innovation in medicine is always that hundreds of thousands of people live from the fact that something is incurable ..”

Vitamin B17 , also Laetrile or. Amygdalin called, was named by the researcher Dr. Cancer was discovered as a vitamin-like and water-soluble substance and was therefore given the name vitamin B17.

The main active ingredient of vitamin B17 – the nitriloside – consists of one molecule each of hydrogen cyanide and benzaldehyde. It is a very stable cyan compound, which is initially neutral in living organisms, is completely non-toxic and has no effect on healthy tissue! It can only develop its effect through the cleavage enzyme ss-glucosidase, which is not found anywhere in the body in any appreciable amount – except in degenerated and uncontrollably dividing cells! Its concentration there is a hundred to 3000 times higher than in the healthy cells in the vicinity. The vitamin B17 is “split” directly in the sick cells and can only have a (toxic) effect or heal on these cells with its strong “cell toxins”, cyanide (hydrogen cyanide) and benzaldehyde.

Another natural factor contributes to this: the absence or presence of another endogenous enzyme called rhodanase, which has the ability and the property to neutralize the hydrogen cyanide and to convert it into substances that are not only non-toxic for the organism, but even for its own Health conducive and necessary. This enzyme can convert hydrogen cyanide into thiocyanate, which has a positive effect on our organism. Thiocyanate lowers blood pressure and is also the substance from which our body produces vitamin B12, which is important for the nerves. The free benzaldehyde is also converted in the healthy cells of the body with the help of oxygen – into the pain reliever benzoic acid. That is the reason for the general analgesic or slightly numbing effect of vitamin B17.

This means that Laetrile (vitamin B17, amygdalin) has two very decisive properties: Healthy tissue can use vitamin B17 as a nutrient, while it can poison and destroy degenerate cells. However, this natural process is not patentable. It is adapted to the natural regulation possibilities of the body. And in contrast to conventional medical chemotherapy, which deliberately overrides the body’s natural regulatory mechanisms, the body is not poisoned.

In summary:

Vitamin B17 has a cancer preventive effect (avoidance of uncontrolled cell division or cell degeneration)

  • Vitamin B17 relieves pain
  • Vitamin B17 makes a significant contribution to improving general wellbeing

Food with vitamin B17 (average amygdaline content of individual seeds in%):

  • Bitter almonds ≤ 12%
  • Apricot kernels ≤ 8%
  • Peach ≤ 6%
  • Sweet almond ≤ 5%
  • Plum ≤ 3%
  • Sour cherry ≤ 2%
  • Sweet cherry ≤ 2%


  • Legumes and their seedlings (cow peas or black peas, chickpeas, lentil seedlings, white beans, kidney beans, lima beans, peas)
  • Whole grains (buckwheat, oats, rye, barley, millet, brown rice)
  • Cores of apples, wild crab apples, nectarines, pears, plums, prunes, apricots, peaches or cabbage (broccoli, kale, red cabbage, cauliflower)
  • Nuts (raw cashew nuts, macadamia nuts)
  • Spinach, watercress, currants

There is also a maximum dose when consuming amygdalin-containing seeds, which should not be exceeded. Enzymatic processes produce a small amount of hydrocyanic acid, which the organism detoxifies to a certain extent without any problems. Symptoms of poisoning can only occur if the consumption is too high or the body’s detoxification capacity is exceeded.

The lowest lethal dose for an adult person weighing 60 kg is 0.57 mg / kg body weight, which is about 40 apricot kernels consumed at once! If you consider the prussic acid content against the background of the lowest value of the detoxification rate for prussic acid of 0.1 mg / kg / h, the following figures result: An adult can detoxify 6.0 mg prussic acid per hour, which is a consumption rate of around 7 apricot kernels per hour Hour corresponds.

You can’t just swallow 40 aspirin at once with no consequences!

A cumulative or cumulative effect of hydrocyanic acid in the human organism, i.e. an accumulating and strengthening effect over time, and thus a creeping poisoning is naturally not possible!

Experience shows that it is from a consumption of> 30 bitter almonds or> 40 apricot kernels spread over the day can lead to diarrhea, stomach pain, nausea, headache, fever, vomiting and dizziness.

Accordingly, the daily amount should be lower. As with all natural products, larger fluctuations are of course possible, which must be taken into account individually. Therefore start with a creeping consumption and start with the daily intake of a seed kernel and gradually increase from day to day in order to stimulate the necessary enzyme activities until you have reached the desired amount of seed kernels (which, by the way, do not all at once, but take three or four servings throughout the day!).

Dr. Greenberg, Professor Emeritus of Biology at the University of California and Advisor to the California Department of Health, writes: “Aspirin tablets are 20 times more toxic than the same amount of Laetrile. The toxicity of aspirin is cumulative (increasing in effect) and can build up over days or even months. The process initiated by Laetrile, on the other hand, is completed within a few hours and leaves no residue whatsoever. Aspirin poisoning kills more than 90 people in the United States each year. But nobody has ever died of vitamin B17. “
