Vitamin B17: You’re Definitely Deficient

DISCLAIMER: Always consult a doctor before undergoing treatment of any kind. 

Vitamin B17 is an anti-cancer vitamin. This vitamin has been systematically removed from the food supply which has led to skyrocketing cancer diagnoses. Indeed, Big Pharma pays a lot of money to create propaganda against consumption of this vitamin in food. The myth that apple seeds are poisonous is a good example of propaganda like this. And the myth that there is cyanide in the apple seeds and apricot kernels that will kill you is another example. The truth is—there is cyanide in these seeds and indeed, it is the cyanide that works as a reactive oxygen species medicine in the body to kill pathogens. The cyanide is packaged with other substances that calibrate it to specifically attack cells that are proliferating abnormally. To healthy human cells, this cyanide is harmless. In grape seeds, proanthocyanidins are the cyanide-substance that has the ability to cure cancer as well as to prevent and speed healing from degenerative diseases including lung disease. But scientific research has shown that not only can grape seeds and certain other seeds like apricot kernels and apple seeds, heal degenerative disease, they can also help prevent cytokine storms in patients with serious infectious diseases of the respiratory system (such as COVID).

Many fruits that were once consumed along with their seeds (which contained vitamin B17) have been hybridized to not produce seeds. Grapes, for example, have been hybridized to be “seedless”. The seedless grapes are touted as better than grapes that have seeds and people have developed an aversion to the seeds, much to the detriment of our health. The bitter taste of the grape seeds is the medicinal vitamin B17 / amygdalin.


Though it is challenging to find vitamin B17 in pill form in the U.S. chronic lung disease patients can consume it in two different forms: as raw, bitter, organic apricot kernels or as either 1) cold pressed grapeseed oil or 2) as cold pressed apricot kernel oil. If you buy food grade grapeseed oil or apricot kernel oil, you can use these oils as salad dressing or you can apply the oil to your skin with a skin penetration enhancer like Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) that is also a powerful anti-cancer agent. These substances (DMSO and apricot kernel oil or grapeseed oil) used together have the ability to reprogram cells that are proliferating abnormally to change back into normal, healthy cells.

NOTE: If you have cold pressed grape seed oil for cooking, don’t overheat it. If you use it for high-heat cooking, you risk destroying the vitamin B17. Indeed, if you suffer from a chronic lung disease, you should avoid even heating oils because the consumption of heated oils causes human cells to become de-electrified. To learn more about the role of healthy fats such as those found in grapeseed oil in electrifying human cells, read more about Dr. Budwig’s protocol here.

Grape Seed Extract for Lung Tissue Repair

Though vitamin B17 is found in the highest quantities in apricot kernel oil, it is more difficult to find scientific studies on apricot kernels or apricot kernel oil because vitamin B17 is a heavily guarded secret in terms of its ability to stop degenerative disease processes, cell proliferation, and due to its ability to cure cancer. Also, most people are more familiar with grape seed oil or grape seed extract as a nutritional supplement, so I like to introduce the idea of taking vitamin B17 in the form of organic, cold-pressed grape seed oil or as grape seed extract because patients can easily imagine themselves consuming this medicine without resistance.


A study at Ohio State University’s Heart and Lung Research Institute showed that grape seed extract promotes the repair of body tissues. This isn’t surprising given the fact that Dr. Sugiura showed that vitamin B17 is a powerful anti-degenerative disease vitamin in his research at Sloan Kettering Memorial Hospital where he was able to cure 100% of animals with cancer using nothing but vitamin B17 (he was quietly dismissed from his post due to this discovery at Sloan Kettering even though he was the inventor of modern-day chemotherapy for cancer).


In the study at Ohio State University, the grape seed extract dramatically enhanced the speed with which tissues were able to heal. It also helped the body  regenerate damaged blood vessels. The study also noted that reactive oxygen species at wound sites were able to kill pathogens. 


The reactive oxygen species that kills pathogens is cyanide, but it works with other substances to function as a medicine rather than as a poison in the body. All medicine, after all, has a dose at which it becomes a poison. 

Grape Seed Extract and Lung Damage Radiation Protection

Grape Seed Extract, apricot kernel seeds, organic, cold-pressed grape seed oil, and organic, cold-pressed apricot kernel oil are all important cancer cures. Indeed, vitamin B17 is central to curing cancer permanently. The doctor who discovered the role of vitamin B17 in curing cancer believed that cancer, like scurvy or ricketts, is a vitamin-deficiency disease. 


Nonetheless, in addition to being useful as a cancer cure itself, scientists have also noted that the proanthocyanidins in grape seeds are the “ideal radioprotective” substance that can protect cancer patients from radiation induced lung injury. The scientists who examined the effects of grape seed proanthocyanidins (note the root “cyanidins” which delineate the presence of cyanide in a molecular package that is safe and healthy for humans) showed that the proanthocyanidins were able to inhibit tumor growth. 


Another study showed that the proanthocyanidins in grape seed extract were able to modulate cytokine secretion in cells infected with Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV). RSV as a respiratory disease causes a lot of illness and death as a result of cytokine production but the proanthocyanidins in grape seed extract are able to function as antioxidants that are also anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, and anti-allergy. This fact is particularly important for chronic lung disease sufferers with asthma, bronchitis, chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD), or pneumnoia because often, airway epithelial cells are infected with RSV in these patients. The inflammation in the airways that’s caused by RSV and the hyper-responsiveness of the bronchioles as a result of infection can’t be treated using conventional medicine. However, it can be treated using grape seed proanthocyanidins. 


Grape seed extract that contains a lot of proanthocyanidins can be used to reduce the production of proinflammatory cytokines in the airway highlighting the fact that grape seed extract can reduce infectious lung disease in addition to reducing the degeneration of lung tissues in degenerative lung diseases. It works in part by making cells in the airway stronger and less susceptible to infection. In RSV, the grape seed extract was able to reduce RSV-induced mucin production, reduce replication of RSV within the airway cells, and also suppress RSV signaling pathways.This study noted that grape seed extract that contains proanthocyanidins could be an important part of the cure for asthma, COPD, chronic bronchitis, and pneumonia as well as other RSV-induced inflammatory diseases.
