What is Vitamin B-17?
Bitter Apricot kernel extract Amygdalin/Vitamin B17 is a glycoside initially from the seeds of the tree Prunus dulcis, also known as bitter almonds. Several other related speciesin the genus of Prunus, including apricot (Prunus or meniaca) and black cherry (Prunus serotina), also contain amygdalin. Since the early 1950s, a modidied form of amygdalin has been promoted under the names laetrile and " Vitamin B17 " as a cancer cure. 

Vitamin B17 is a commonly used name for a chemical called amygdalin. Typically sourced from apricot pits and bitter almonds, amygdalin is used to make laetrile (a compound said to aid in the treatment of cancer). Although they're frequently referred to as "vitamin B17," neither amygdalin nor laetrile is truly a B vitamin.


There is a compound called amygdalin that is found in the seeds of some foods and has come to be known in some circles as vitamin B17. Calling amygdalin a vitamin has been called into question because it doesn’t appear to fit the definition of a vitamin as stated above. Since it is believed there are no deficiency symptoms associated with a lack of amygdalin in the diet, it is felt amygdalin shouldn’t be called a vitamin. Others have observed that people with a lot of amygdalin in the diet are healthier and rarely get cancer. Therefore, some have concluded amygdalin may serve as a protective agent against cancer and other diseases and a lack of this nutrient can lead to health problems. From this perspective, amygdalin could qualify as a vitamin.


Amygdalin is found in a variety of berries, nuts, beans, and the seeds of fruits such as apples, peaches and pears. Amygdalin is known to be abundant in apricot seeds. One reason amygdalin is thought by some to be a protective agent against disease is related to what is known about the Hunza people who live in the Himalayas. The Hunza’s have been studied for years because of their longevity and relative freedom from disease. While a number of dynamics appear to be involved in the superior health of the Hunza’s, it has been noted that their diet contains a very high amount of amygdalin. The Hunza’s grow apricot trees in large quantity and dry the seeds of the apricot fruit and regularly consume them as part of their diet.


Amygdalin is a member if a family of compounds called nitrilosides and is composed of two molecules of glucose, one molecule of a substance called benzaldehyde and one molecule of hydrocyanic acid. It is believed by some that the hydrocyanic acid in amygdalin kills cancer cells. Some years ago a synthetic version of amygdalin called Laetrile was developed and used by some health practitioners to treat cancer. Is amygdalin/Laetrile an effective treatment for cancer? It depends on who you talk too.

Health benefits of Amygdalin/Vitamin B17


Laetrile is often claimed to treat cancer naturally. It is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a treatment for cancer, or any other medical condition.


Some proponents of laetrile suggest that cancer occurs as a result of a vitamin deficiency. Such proponents claim that consumption of the so-called vitamin B17 can reverse this deficiency and, in turn, aid in the treatment or prevention of cancer. However, as the National Cancer Institute (NCI) states, there is no evidence that laetrile is needed by the body or that laetrile can act as a vitamin in animals or humans.

Laetrile is also purported to protect against conditions like high blood pressure and arthritis.
