Vitamin B17 is also known as Amygdalin. Source of vitamin B17 are stone fruit kernels, bitter almond, apricot, peach, and the plum. Vitamin B17 is often considered as cure of cancer. Cancer is a disease caused by an uncontrolled proliferation of tumour cells. The scientific name of Vitamin B17 is mandelonitrile beta-D-gentiobioside, is known as a nitriloside (a natural cyanide-containing substance).Above and beyond the beneficial effects, it can be extremely poisonous because of the high level of cyanide, In the past this was the main cause of the failure of many clinical trials linked with anticancer effects of vitamin B17. Vitamin B17 produces hydrogen cyanide and its release in the tissue of the body and targets the tumour cells. In this review we will discuss about the natural source of B17, pharmacological effects, mechanism of action of vitamin B17.
