Almonds In Distilled Water
According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) …
“The first bite of the day should be almond to set the full strength of hydrochloric acid for all-day protein digestion.”
Amygdalin was discovered in almonds in 1830.
It’s a cyanogenic glycoside, also known as vitamin B-17.
Amygdalin is promoted as an alternative cancer treatment, arousing the ire of Medical Nemesis and Big Pharma.
Laetrile/amygdalin was first used to treat cancer in Russia in 1845.
According to Wikipedia (last updated Jun. 30, 2020) …
“Amygdalin was first isolated in 1830 from bitter almond seeds (Prunus dulcis) by Pierre-Jean Robiquet and Antoine Boutron-Charlard. Liebig and Wöhler found three hydrolysis products of amygdalin: sugar, benzaldehyde, and prussic acid (hydrogen cyanide, HCN). Later research showed that sulfuric acid hydrolyzes it into D-glucose, benzaldehyde, and prussic acid; while hydrochloric acid gives mandelic acid, D-glucose, and ammonia.”
Soaking almonds in distilled water for a minimum of six hours and a maximum of 72 hours (three days) decomposes traces of amygdalin into the more chemically active hydrocyanic acid, also known as hydrogen cyanide or prussic acid.
Oversoaking almonds beyond 72 hours ferments them (not a good thing) and oxidizes benzaldehyde into benzoic acid.
Almonds also contain anti-carcinogenic protease inhibitors, such as phenols and tannins.
The tannins are mostly in an almond’s skin.
For extra tannins, drink the almond water.
For less tannins, avoid the almond water.
Do you have diarrhea? Drink the almond water.
Do you have constipation? Avoid the almond water.
Almonds help activate the amygdala gland in the limbic system.
The words amygdala and amygdalin come from the Greek word for “almond.”
The amygdala is both almond-shaped and almond-sized.
Stimulating a man’s amygdala gives him an erection and memories of intercourse and orgasm.
