Amygdalin is a natural compound of many stone fruits, e.g. almonds, apple or apricots. Chemically it is a glycoside, which means a molecule based on sugar and alcohol. What makes Amygdalin so special is its core, containing cyanide. In case the sugar is removed from the molecule, the cyanide is set free and forms toxic hydrocyanic acid. You may ask about the sense of setting free a toxic substance in a body already suffering of intoxication. Two factors make Amygdalin a precious tool in fighting cancer. First thing is, that cancer cells exhibit an enormous demand of sugar. Their affinity to sugar is many times higher than in healthy cells. This is why most of the Amygdalin ends up in cancer cells. Second good news: Cancer cells (in contrast to healthy cells) provide the enzyme that’s needed to cut the sugar of and set the cyanide free. As a result of these facts, the toxic impact of Amygdalin is restricted to cancerous tissue, while healthy cells are not affected.
Experience shows, that the intravenous administration of Amygdalin is tolerated much better than the oral use. While infusions show no side effects, oral Amygdalin in a higher dose can cause nausea, vomiting and general illness. We recommend to take it orally only in small amounts and rely on infusions when it’s about a high dose treatment
