Did Doctors Ban Vitamin B17 Because It Was Too Effective At Fighting Cancer?

Vitamin B17

Here’s what you need to know – this Vitamin is usually found in nuts, berries, leafy greens, sprouts, tubers, and in abundance in the pits of fruits like apricot, peach, and cherry. There are 2 main reasons why you’ve never heard of vitamin B17:

  • It’s illegal to sell as a supplement in North America. Amygdalin is the active compound of vitamin B17
  • Its synthetic (manufactured) form is called laetrile. Laetrile was used as an alternate cancer treatment until 1980 when it was banned by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Note: and, one last thing – this compound contains cyanide, which is a known poison—that’s why the FDA made it illegal to sell as a dietary supplement.

How it Works

First of all, you should know that Laetrile (amygdalin or Vitamin B17) therapy is one of the most popular and best known alternative cancer treatments. Well yes, and you should also know that it’s very simple to use and is very effective if used in high enough doses and if the product is of high quality and if it is combined with an effective cancer diet and key supplements.

According to the experts, this ingredient works by targeting and killing cancer cells and building the immune system to fend off future outbreaks of cancer. Laetrile uses two different methods for killing cancer cells. It involves a strict diet (as do all cancer treatments) and several supplements.

The B17 Controversy

The famous Dr. Weil and other mainstream doctors, say that there is no such thing as vitamin B17. Well yes, and they also claim that the term is inaccurately applied to laetrile, a discredited cancer drug, and amygdalin, the natural substance from which laetrile is made.

As we said, this compound is usually found in the seeds of apricot, peaches, and almonds. Despite the lack of proof that laetrile/amygdalin works, promoters have continued to make unwarranted claims for it, referring to it as vitamin B17 and selling it as a dietary supplement to prevent, as well as treat, cancer.

Other Experts Don’t Agree?

Well yes, other experts claim that this vitamin exists and that it benefits patients diagnosed with cancer, but pharmaceutical magnums do not want the world to know this.

And, the question remains – why? Well, that’s easy to answer – because they would lose their profits. It is much easier to lure people in their own death while keeping the potential cure aside. Yes, and you should be careful, because it’s banned to write, film or participate in public debates on this subject. The FDA, American Cancer Society, and American Medical Association are part of the game as well. Ladies and gentlemen, you should also know that doctors who have used this vitamin to treat their patients and save their lives have faced prosecution. Surprised, or not really?

And now, we’re going to share the story of a woman who decided to take things in her own hands. She fought the disease alone, with no help or expensive treatment. Her treatment involved administration of vitamin B17, and the cancer soon responded the way she expected. This is how the story goes:

“Unfortunately, the cancer came back right after she stopped using the vitamin. If you have not heard about this vitamin before, it is highly concentrated in apricot kernels and provides great benefits when used properly.”

So, what happened – well, this amazing woman refused to do chemo and vitamin B17 was the only thing she took. Believe it or not, the therapy destroyed her malignant tumors, and she was cancer-free and healthy again. She took 500mg of vitamin B17 twice a day for 10 weeks straight.

Banned by the FDA!

Here’s what you need to know – this vitamin was banned by the FDA in the 1980s. Once labeled and marketed as a vitamin, its appearance practically disappeared without a trace within the mainstream medical community.

Note: just a simple Web search pulls multiple blogs and articles either generously supporting this nutrient as a miracle cure or vilifying it as a hoax. As we said, Vitamin B17, also called amygdalin or laetrile, is a glycoside nutrient linked with cancer prevention in alternative medicine practices — and there are anecdotal claims that it’s actually cured cancer.

Bottom Line:

  • As we said, this vitamin is derived from natural food sources and most abundant in seeds of plants of the prunasin family, such as apricots and apples.
  • Vitamin B17 has the scientific name mandelonitrile beta-D-gentiobioside and it’s considered a nitriloside, a natural cyanide-containing substance.
  • Laetrile – the extract form of vitamin B17, is most well-known for potentially helping prevent cancer development through the production of hydrogen cyanide.
  • This beneficial compound is released into the body’s tissues and targets and destroys mutated cells. Although more formal research is still needed to prove vitamin B17’s effectiveness, many alternative medicine practitioners use vitamin B17 to increase immunity.
  • Last, but not least important – cyanide is thought to be the main anti-cancer component of vitamin B17 but is not fully proven in clinical settings as of today.
