Great Benefits of Vitamin B17

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 main sources of the vitamin are apricot seeds and almonds. The two sources are known to contain two strains of 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. The other fact you need to know about this vitamin is that as a result of the fact that apricot is not as easily available from our local stores, the vitamin B17 is not easily available as a subsequent result to the fact that it is primarily sourced from this plant. 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. 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. 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. 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. This is as well a nutritional supplement which will quite prove good in so far as treatment of cancer goes as tests have proved that after the completion of the treatment plans using the vitamin B17 there have been witnessed cases of significant reduction in the cancer cells in the patients under the treatments.
