Interestingly, there is a tribe in the Himalayas called Hunza tribe. In this strain, a world-famous British surgeon dr. Robert McCarrison has done research because it has been observed that people living in the tribe are cancer-free and have a very long life, on average 100 years. During their research it was found that they consume a lot of peach seeds, both raw and oil for cosmetics, baking and cooking. The research continued with the examination of apricot kernel, which was found to be high in nitrilosides (vitamin B17).
Vitamin B 17 has two molecules, benzaldehyde and cyanide. They are closely connected. Everyone knows that cyanide can be toxic and can be fatal in large quantities. However, naturally occurring vitamin B 17 does not react chemically and is not harmful to healthy living cells. Only one compound can release cyanide from vitamin B 17 and this enzyme is betaglucosidaz. When vitamin B 17 comes into contact with this enzyme in the presence of water, not only cyanide but also benzaldehyde is released. Fortunately, the opening enzyme betaglucosidaz is not present in dangerous amounts in the body, only in cancer cells. In this way, vitamin B 17 breaks down the cancer cells and exposes their toxic content, but only in that area, thus destroying the cancer cells. Another important enzyme in our body is radonez. Also known as defensive, because it is capable of neutralizing cyanide, which is instantly converted to thiocyanate. Radonez is found in large quantities everywhere in our body except cancer cells, so it does not protect them from cyanide. These findings are due to Dr. Allen E. Banik ophthalmologist.
Of course, it cannot be said that peach seed oil is an antidote to cancer, but it can certainly play an important role in prevention.
In addition, apricot kernel oil can have a beneficial effect on hypertension.
There is evidence that the consumption of apricot kernels can help maintain a slightly alkaline, ideal pH (around 7.4) in the blood.
