What is Amygdalin?
May 09, 2017

Amygdalin (from Ancient Greek: ἀμυγδαλή amygdálē "almond") is a poisonous cyanogenic glycoside found in many plants, but most notably in the seeds (kernels) of apricot, bitter almonds, apple, peach, and plum.

AMYGDALIN is an herbal constituent derived from the kernel of various fruits of the genus “Prunus” which includes the plum, prune, almond, apricot, cherry and peach among others. According to the Merck Index, and the Chemical Abstracts Service AMYGDALIN is a white, crystalline, inodorous powder with an intensely bitter taste.

Amygdalin is contained in stone fruit kernels, such as apricot (8%), peach (6%), bitter almond (5%), and plum (2.5%); amygdalin is also found in the seeds of the apple. The stones are taken out of the fruit and cracked to obtain the kernels, which are dried in the sun or in ovens. The kernels are boiled in ethanol; on evaporation of the solution and the addition of diethyl ether, amygdalin is precipitated as white minute crystals. Natural amygdalin has the R configuration at the chiral phenyl center. Under mild basic conditions, this stereogenic center isomerizes; the S epimer is called neoamygdalin. 

Since the early 1950s, both amygdalin and a modified form named laetrile have been promoted as alternative cancer treatments, often using the misnomer Vitamin B17.But studies have found them to be clinically ineffective in the treatment of cancer, as well as potentially toxic or lethal when taken by mouth, due to cyanide poisoning. Neither amygdalin nor laetrile is a vitamin. The promotion of laetrile to treat cancer has been described in the medical literature as a canonical example of quackery, and as "the slickest, most sophisticated, and certainly the most remunerative cancer quack promotion in medical history."
