Vitamin B17

Recommended daily allowance



According to Ernst T. Krebs (was first who amygdalin / laetrile designated as vitamin) recommended about 100 mg of amygdalin per day (the equivalent of about seven apricots seeds).

By Krebs vitamin B17 is properly intaked if it is eaten the whole fruit (including seeds), but it should not be eaten more seeds than the whole fruit. If you consume apricot or peach seeds it shall contain one seed per 10 kg of body weight (eg, a person of 70 kg could intake 7 seeds per day).
