We have seen for quite some time, years now, a search all around the world on the possible cures for the dreaded cancer menace. Vitamin B17, also known as laetrile or amygdalin, has been said to have some of the essential composite ingredients that are believed to be as good in fighting this dreaded disease. The main sources of the vitamin are apricot seeds and almonds. These contain two glucose molecules.
On the recommended dosage for this vitamin supplement, it is widely seen and advisable not to take it in not more than three grams on a daily basis and should be spread over three equal intervals in spite of the fact that there is still not yet availed documented evidence on the toxicity of this supplement and further research is still being carried on. You may as well count this as a valuable information in as much as information on vitamin B17 goes-the fact that apricot will not be as easily available from our local stores, it means the vitamin B17 in its natural form is not as well as readily available. As such the most effective sources of the vitamin have always been the natural extracts which have been used as the ready substitutes for the intake of the supplements for vitamin B17. Moreover you can choose to crack open the apricot seeds open and have them swallowed to get the nutrients. This is a very sure way to take in the vitamins when you have the apricots in season. During those times when you seem unable to find the apricots you can alternatively go for the almonds as an alternative.
In spite of the great role laetrile, or otherwise known as vitamin B17, goes in roles in the prevention of cancer it is as well known to be very effective in maintaining and managing the overall health conditions and wellness of the body in general. 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.
