Interesting Research on Wellness – Things You Probably Never Knew

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 largely billed as containing some of the essential ingredients in its composition which are seen to be effective in fighting the disease is none but that known as vitamin B17, which is alternatively known as laetrile or Amygdalin in other quarters. The major known sources of this vitamin are almonds and apricot seeds. The two sources are known to contain two strains of glucose molecules.

Even though there has not been a documented and factual evidence over the toxicity or dangers of this supplement and much is still being done on its research and effectiveness, you are supposed to ensure that you are taking no more than three grams per day and take as much in intervals spread of equal nature. 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. The other means for the intake of the essential vitamin B17 you can choose to crack the apricot seeds open and eat them up as yet another alternative way for taking up this essential vitamin. However this only seems tenable and applicable in those seasons when the apricot seeds are readily available as in those times when they are in season. During those times when you seem unable to find the apricots you can alternatively go for the almonds as an alternative.

Nevertheless, it is as well necessary that you mind the fact that aside from the roles in cancer prevention, the vitamin B17 is as well a very good source of health and plays a major role in general health and wellness of the body in general. The nutritional components resent in the vitamin are such as will ensure that the body is functioning in an optimum status and help it fight some of the common infections such as colds and flu. 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.
