1.Antitussive and antiasthmatic effects
B17 amygdalin can be hydrolyzed by the intestinal microbial enzyme or the bitter almond enzyme contained in the bitter almond itself to produce a trace amount of hydrocyanic acid and benzaldehyde, which has an inhibitory effect on the respiratory center and achieves antitussive and antiasthmatic effects.
2. Improving digestive system
While amygdalin is decomposed by enzymes to form hydrocyanic acid, it also produces benzaldehyde, which inhibits the activity of pepsin and thus affects digestive function.
The mouse hot plate method and acetic acid writhing method confirmed that amygdalin has an analgesic effect, but is different from morphine analgesic. The benzaldehyde benzoin condensing enzyme produced by the decomposition of amygdalin produces benzoin. Benzoin has an analgesic effect. Therefore, the use of amygdalin in the treatment of advanced liver cancer in China can relieve the suffering of patients, and some do not even need to take painkillers.
Studies have shown that amygdalin is a vitamin B17 that has the function of preventing and treating tumors. The anaerobic degradation of tumor cells predominates, and the final product is lactic acid. The acidic environment is beneficial to increase the activity of β-glucosidase, and the amygdalin is decomposed into more benzaldehyde and hydrocyanic acid in tumor cells, which produces selective killing of tumor cells.
5.Reducing blood sugar and blood lipid
6. Regulating immune system
Amygdalin powder can effectively inhibit adjuvant inflammation, enhance the phagocytic function of macrophages, and have the function of regulating immunity.
