This Smoothie Ingredient Is Forbidden In The USA And Can Turn You Into An Athlete

By Ingrid De La O , August 14, 2019

Do you ever wish you had the endurance of an athlete without spending all your time training?

And if you are an athlete – how about something that reduces lactic acid buildup and increases stamina?

In the mid-1900’s, American biochemist Ernst Krebs first discovered and isolated vitamin B15 – also referred to as pangamic acid. Derived initially from apricot seeds, B15 was believed to offer a host of benefits to the liver, respiratory tract, skin, nerves and joints.

Benefits of Vitamin B15

Extending cell span

Accelerating recovery

Protecting against oxidative stress

Protecting the liver against cirrhosis

Stimulating the immune system

Neutralizing cravings for alcohol

Lowering bad cholesterol levels

Warding off hangovers

…and the list goes on. Vitamin B15 has been particularly touted as an “energizer”, recommended for use by athletes to increase performance and endurance.

Not long after B15 hit the shelves in the US, the FDA decided to ban it, claiming it was void of any nutritional benefit. That said, extensive research has been conducted in Russia that supports its perceived benefits. Russian athletes consume up to 300mg of this forbidden vitamin daily to accelerate healing of muscle tissues and boost athletic performance.

While isolated B15 is commercially sold as a supplement in Europe, Japan, and Russia, here in the US we can find this magical compound in a variety of natural sources.

How to Add B15 Into Your Diet

This recipe is designed primarily with ingredients that contain the highest natural levels of vitamin B15, as well as a selection of ingredients that increase its potency and improve its bioavailability. Vitamins A and E improve the efficacy of B15, so we’ve added apricot fruit (vitamin A) and tocotrienols (vitamin E) to the formula. Notice that the apricot seed contains B15 while the apricot fruit has vitamin A – naturally they work together to enhance each other’s properties.

Now let’s get down to it and cheers with a smoothie made from ingredients that contain natural forms of B15!
