B17 (Amygdalin)

B17 in Cancer Treatment.

B17 (Amygdalin) is a natural substance (a nitriloside) found in certain plants and it is highly and selectively toxic to cancer cells. This is why B17 should be a part of any cancer treatment protocol.

Amygdalin is a naturally occurring compound found in raw nuts, vegetables, pits or seeds of apples, plums, apricots, cherries, and pears. It can also be found in seeds like flaxseeds, buckwheat seeds, squash seeds and in berries—raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries. Small amounts of amygdalin can also be found in eucalyptus leaves, bamboo sprouts, fava beans, and mung beans.

Studies have identified promising health benefits of amygdalin. In one, it was found to help lower blood pressure, especially when taken with vitamin C. Some of the active compounds in amygdalin stimulate the production of thiocyanate which is known to suppress blood pressure. It can help minimize the risk of stroke, coronary heart disease, and atherosclerosis.

There is also evidence to show that b17 can help relieve inflammatory pain and boost immunity.

Vitamin B17 is made up of benzaldehyde and hydrogen cyanide. Normally, these two components would be toxic by themselves but harmless when part of vitamin B17. It can be broken down by beta-glucosidase.

Beta-glucosidase are enzymes that have functional importance to biological systems. They are components of cellulosomes and “responsible for the hydrolysis of short-chain oligosaccharides and cellobiose.” Cellulosomes are multi-enzyme complexes vital to the “the anaerobic deconstruction of complex plant cell wall carbohydrates.”

Hydrolysis refers to a compound that breaks down chemically as a result of a reaction with water. In plants, beta-glucosidases are instrumental in cell wall lignification, degradation of the cell wall during germination and defense against biotic stress. Among mammals, it is involved in the metabolism of glycolipids and dietary glucosides as well as signaling.

It is said that beta-glucosidase can be found in small quantities in the cells of the body, except in certain organs. It is also “abundant in the cancer cells and tissues.”

This means that amygdalin is broken down effectively to its components in cancer-affected areas. It is neutralized with healthy cells and tissues in the body.  When this happens, the elements of amygdalin that are toxic for degenerative cells exterminate them.

A report published in 2014 also found that amygdalin is a “promising antitumor drug.” It can be used to soothe pain experienced during traditional cancer treatment.

Vitamin B17 cancer treatment should be administered intravenously to maximize therapeutic effects and neutralize cyanide toxicity. B17 iv treatment is part of our comprehensive cancer treatment program.
