Amygdalin Extraction Instruction
◆ Amygdalin is a poisonous cyanogenic glycoside found in many plants, but most notably in the seeds (kernels) of apricot, peach, bitter almond, and plum. Most commonly it is called Laetrile, the commercially prepared product of the apricot seed. The name vitamin B17 is also used to describe this compound, although it is not recognised as a vitamin. It can hydrolyze and generate prunasin and mandelonitrile under the glucosidase action, such as amygdalase and prunase, and ultimately decomposed into benzaldehyde and hydrocyanic acid (HCN).
◆Also this product is non-toxic, but its production HCN decomposed by some enzymes is poisonous substance. Numerous studies have documented that it has antitussive and antiasthmatic effects, as well as an effect on the digestive system. D-Amygdalin hydrate is the main component in the traditional Chinese medicine bitter almond. Under the action of β-glucosidase, hydrocyanic acid can be produced. Hydrocyanic acid can combine with the cytochrome oxidase ferric iron in the cell to inhibit the activity of this enzyme. Causes cell respiratory depression and causes cell death.

Amygdalin Extraction Benefits
◆ The bitter apricot kernels can relieve a cough, relax bowel, cure for tuberculosis, sough, lung disease and so on.
◆ Sweet almond and fruit big almond that we eat daily leans to moist, have certain fill lung function.
◆ Almond also contains rich flavonoids and polyphenols composition, this kind of composition can not only reduce human cholesterol, still can significantly reduce heart disease and many chronic disease onsets of danger.
◆ Almond also have hairdressing effect, can promote skin microcirculation, make the skin ruddy luster.
◆ Medical and health care product, Healthy nutrition.
◆ Infantal food, solid beverage, diary, instant food, puffed food.
◆ Flavouring, Middle-aged and old food, baked food, snack food, cool food and drink.
◆ For beauty or cosmetics.
◆ D-Amygdalin hydrate poisoning is very serious. Most of them occur within 1 to 2 hours after eating nuts. Early manifestations were lack of energy, irritability, headache, dizziness, drooling, nausea and vomiting. The symptoms will gradually increase. Respiratory depression, loss of consciousness, closed jaws, convulsions, and body temperature. Blood pressure drops. Often life-threatening.
Poisoning mechanism disposal of Amygdalin Extraction
◆ D-Amygdalin hydrate is hydrolyzed by the action of amygdalin or gastric acid to produce hydrocyanic acid, which has a tissue respiratory inhibition effect. After ingesting bitter almonds, the bitter almonds contained in the mouth, esophagus, stomach and intestines are in contact with water. After hydrolysis by bitter almond enzyme, hydrocyanic acid is released, and bitter almonds are chewed in the mouth and mixed with saliva to produce hydrogen Cyanate.
◆ The cyanide ion binds to the iron-containing cytochrome oxidase, which hinders normal breathing, and the body is in a state of suffocation due to hypoxia. Hydrogen cyanide also acts on the respiratory center and the vasomotor center, causing it to paralyze and eventually leading to death.
