Apricot Kernels are the seeds found at the centre of apricots, and feature high levels of vitamin B17. Vitamin B17 also known as amygdalin possesses the properties helpful in aiding pain associated with arthritis and also lowering blood pressure. Amygdalins most prominent attribute however, revolves around its purported cancer fighting and prevention capabilities.
Prevention and Treating Cancer
Since the early 1950’s the amygdalin extracted from apricot kernels has been used to create a chemically modified version of B17 known as Laetrile. Laetrile’s reputation arises from the claim that it can kill cancer cells while leaving normal cells unaffected.
How It Works?
As far as alternative treatments go Laetrile therapy is known as one of the most popular and best known. It is easy to use and very effective when used in high enough doses. If the product is of high quality and implemented correctly into a cancer diet, it can be very effective. It works by targeting and killing cancer cells and strengthening the immune system to fend off against future outbreaks of cancer. Please note – it must be taken as part of a strict diet.
Other Supplements Required for Best Results
As well as adapting to an appropriate anti cancer diet, it is also important to get a range of nutrients that are required for laetrile to work to its full potential. These are the following nutrients to check you are getting whilst using this treatment.
- Zinc (which is the transport mechanism for laetrile),
- Vitamin C (build up to 6 grams a day),
- Vitamins B6, B9 and B12,
- Vitamin A,
- Vitamin E (at least 2,000 I.U.)
Side Effects And Warnings
- Laetrile may cause low blood pressure. Check you are not already taking blood pressure medications.
- Laetrile should NOT be used in conjunction with prescription blood thinners unless your doctor is aware it is being used.
