What is Vitamin B17?

Ask Larry: Your Question: A friend of mine went to Mexico and came back with a suitcase full of Vitamin B17. What the heck is Vitamin B17? Is it safe? What would someone use it for?

It is a partly man made (synthetic) form of the natural substance amygdalin, which is a plant substance found naturally in raw nuts and the seeds of Continue Reading

In January, JCB registered with the FDA as an 503B Outsourcing Facility.

Skin care, with chemicals?

On average, American women use 12 personal care products a day, and men average 6. Overall, an adult is likely to be exposed to 126 unique chemical ingredients in personal care products every day. So why aren’t we more careful about what products we put on ourselves?  We want our skin to look good and we don’t want to smell bad, but we’re sadly unaware of the damage that skin and hair products can cause. We Continue Reading
