"Everything is poison, and everything is a medicine - both determine the dose."The well-known statement of Paracelsus is true about not only medicines, but also many products that are in our diet.

It's hard to believe in this, especially if it's about the favorites of doctors and nutritionists - fruits and berries. Tasty and, of course, useful - where is the "poison" in them? And he is hidden behind a dense shell of bones. In the bones of plums, peaches, apricots, cherries, cherries is a substance such as glycoside amygdalin( which is sometimes called vitamin B17).It is believed that this component has unique abilities, it is cleaved in the stomach with the release of hydrocyanic acid. This acid is the strongest poison, at a dosage of 1 mg / kg of body weight is lethal to humans.

Nevertheless, if you eat a few fruit nucleoli a day, you can not die, but it's quite possible to be cured. Being plant embryos, they contain a huge amount of vitamins and minerals.

The general rule for those who decided to engage in "bone healing": the nuclei that have to be released from the bone shell, in the daily diet should be no more than 10. The number of those that have a pronounced bitter taste( evidence of high content of amygdaline), it is better to reduce to 3-5.
