Amygdalin (Vitamin B17)

One of the most active ingredients in the fight against cancer is vitamin B17, also known as Laetrile Amygdalin. This is a substance which can be converted into a potent toxic under the action of the enzyme beta-glucosidase. This enzyme is found in large quantities in or on tumor cells. Another enzyme, the rhodanese, on the other hand occurs almost exclusively in healthy cells and prevents the formation of poisons. Thus, the vitamin B17 tumor cells is a potent inhibitory while not harming healthy cells. In a recent pilot study by the Goethe University Hospital in Frankfurt, inhibition is observed in cancer growth with amygdalin and confirmed in bladder cancer cells.

The safety of the preparation was confirmed in a court judgment.

An additional effect of amygdalin is that of an analgesic effect.
