Dr. Ernest Krebs came to a realization that the Hunza people who live near Pakistan, have never suffered from common and serious diseases like diabetes, heart stroke or cancer.
Namely, their key to health and longevity lies in their diet. Hunza’s amazing diet consists of bone broth, fresh grains, raw milk, vegetables and some meat, and they almost never consume sugar. Moreover, they are physically active as they are nomads and herders.
But, there is something very peculiar about their diet: they consume great amounts of apricot seeds that are rich in Laetrile (vitamin B17), or to be more precise, they consume from 250 to 3000 milligrams of vitamin B17 per day.
Another interesting fact linked to the importance of the apricot is that Hunza people measure their wealth in apricot trees. The more apricot trees, the richer the man is.
Many would ask themselves “Why is this vitamin so essential to them?” Well, this vitamin is composed of one molecule benzaldehyde, one molecule hydrogen cyanide and two molecules of glucose. In order to liberate benzaldehyde and cyanide, they need to come in contact with a specific enzyme called beta-glucosidase which is mostly present in cancer cells.
Cancer cells get their energy from large amounts of glucose. With vitamin B12 intake, these cells absorb glucose molecule of vitamin B17. This vitamin is extremely deadly to cancer cells because of the high concentration of beta-glucosidase enzymes, while it is completely safe for healthy cells.
Even though cyanide and benzaldehyde are known to be quite toxic and even lethal for the human organism, when they are combined with the glucose molecule of vitamin B17, they don’t have any toxic effects.
The recommended dosage is 5 to 7 seeds per day. Cancer patients should consume 1 to 2 seeds hourly, and by dividing you weight by three, you will get the maximum dosage of apricot seeds that you need to consume daily.
