Dr. Ernst T. Krebs has made the fantastic breakthrough of amygdalin in 1952, or otherwise known as B17 vitamin. This discovery is marked as one of the most important achievements in the field of alternative cancer treatment due to the high potency of amygdalin which effectively treats cancer.
Amygdalin is highly concentrated in apricot seeds, but most people are not familiar with the existence of amygdalin, even though it is such an important discovery. It makes you wonder why?
The reason behind this lies in the most lucrative business in the world and that is pharmacy, namely conventional cancer treatments are promoted by a 200 billion dollar market, which relies on the sales of the pharmaceuticals produced by them. Unfortunately, in most cases these treatments are not very effective.
According to Edward Griffin Nature offers us so many remedies and among them is also the remedy against cancer, all we have to do is to find them and produce them. In the case of amygdalin, the cure for treating cancer is found, but the knowledge of its existence is still limited.
Apricot Seeds in the Fight against Cancer
It has been proven that apricot seeds have in their content more amygdalin than most of the other fruits, and for that reason they are so effective in the fight against cancer. The positive thing about this compound is that it solely attacks the cancerous cells and destroys them. Moreover, it protects the body from the reoccurrence of the cancer and at the same time boosts the immune system. On the extremely positive effects of amygdalin, a study was being conducted on the “Hunza” tribe residing in the Himalayan Mountains, where their diet is primarily consisted of apricots. In this tribe there is not a single case of cancer due to the their feeding method which offers them 200 times more concentration of amygdalin, or B 17 than most western people.
The Content of Amygdalin
Amygdalin is consisted of four substances, two glucoses, a benzaldehyde and cyanide. Yes, it is a true fact that amygdalin contains cyanide, but it is not toxic as it forms a part of a bigger compound and as a result of that, it does not show any poisonous features, which is not the case if it does not belong to this compound.
How does it treat cancer?
Once the amygdalin enters into the body and reaches to a health cell, for almost 80 minutes is being decomposed by the Rhodanese enzyme into Beznoic acid and Thiocyanate, and these two can protect and heal the healthy cell. Even if higher amounts of amygdalin enter the body, the surplus of Benzoic acid and Thiocyanate is being eliminated via urination in the most natural way.
However, when amygdalin, or B17, reaches to the carcinogenic cell, then it is completely different situation, it cannot be broken down by Rhodanese since carcinogenic cells do not have it in their content, and because of that it is included in a chemical reaction with Beta-Gucosidase, thus resulting in the production of contaminants composed of Hydrogen Cyanide and Benzaldehyde. These toxins only target and kill the cancer cells, while on the other hand the healthy ones remain intact; this process is known as selective toxicity.
Nevertheless, amygdalin has never been patented due to the fact that it results from a natural process, and not from a chemical one created by humans.
