I seems that the most important discovery in human history happened unofficial. It was the case with Ernest Krebs – biochemist, who in 1950 tried to find out what works best against cancer cells and how to cure cancer.
Krebs claimed that cancer happens over time as a result of the metabolic response of poor diet and started to examine the food habits of Hunza, nation which is hidden far away from civilization in the vicinity of northern Pakistan.
He said that people in this Hunza nation, live their life in perfect harmony with their body and mind, enjoy in healthy life, physically and psychically. Also, beside it, he found out that some of these people live more than 135 years. The secret of their simple way of life is in the fact that they consume large amounts of seeds from apricot.
Krebs was very interested about this fact and later discovered that the seeds of apricots contain amygdalin, responsible for destroying the tumor.
Amygdalin can be found in over 1,200 plant in nature which can be consumed but inside the seeds of apricots, there is present with highest concentration. Amygdalin in nitriloside and its structure is like one of the vitamins of B complex so this is why Krebs called it vitamin B17.
Method of action:
It is believed that amygdalin has ability to act devastating on the cancer cells. The molecules of amygdalin are consisted from one molecule benzaldehyde, one molecule hydrocyanide and two molecules of glucose.
Although cyanide is toxic, when is connected with amygdaline acid is inert and poses no danger to living tissues. Same applies to benzaldehyde which is poison. The secret of the amygdalin actions lies in the enzyme beta- glycoside. The cancer cells due to their specific metabolism, similar to the metabolism of fungi and bacteria contain larger quantities of these enzymes than normal cells. In the infected cells, these enzymes are present more than 3,000 times.
For develop, cancer cells need large amounts of energy or glucose. When you are entering vitamin B17, cancer cells absorb the molecule of glucose from the vitamin B17 and with the enzyme beta- glycoside, benzaldehyde and cyanide of vitamin B17 are released and are destroying the infected cells. Thanks to the high concentration of enzymes beta- glycoside, vitamin B17 is extremely deadly for cancer cells and non- toxic for normal cells.
We suggest you to eat every day seeds of apricot so you will be able to improve your health and prevent the development of cancerous cells.
