Vitamin B17 Sources and Facts
Cancer as a disease most dreaded and ravaging millions all across the globe has been one of the diseases which has quite been done a lot of research on all around the world trying to find some of the probable sources of cures to the disease. One of the vitamins which has been somehow leveled as a good source of effective components in fighting the disease has been vitamin B17, also known as laetrile or Amygdalin. There are two main plant sources of this vitamin and they happen to be apricot seeds and almonds. The two sources are known to contain two strains of glucose molecules.
In as much there is still no documented evidence on the toxic nature of the supplement, when you are consuming this supplement you are largely advised to take no more than three grams of it on a daily basis and the intake should be spread over equal intervals of the same number. It is as well important that you note the fact that vitamin is not as readily sourced in its natural form as it is desired due to the fact that the primary source in its natural form-the apricots-are as well not so readily available from our local retail outlets and stores. For this reason the most sustainable source of the vitamin has largely been seen to be the natural extracts. Moreover you can choose to crack open the apricot seeds open and have them swallowed to get the nutrients. Explore this alternative more so when you have the apricot seeds in season. If you cannot find the apricots as in those times when they are out of season, think of using the almonds as a sure alternative for your source of vitamin B17.
It is as well worth noting the fact that apart from the functions mentioned above for vitamin B17 in cancer prevention, they as well play a major role in our overall health and well being. This is one of the vitamins with which are the abilities to boost the body’s immune system and as such be strengthened enough to fight a number of the diseases such as colds and flu and enable the body to function at its very optimum levels. On top of this we have seen some signs of this being a very good cure to cancer as where patients of cancer were placed under vitamin b17 medication to treat cancer, there has been shown a significant reduction in the cancer related cells in the concerned patients after completion of the medication.
