Organically grown inside the apricot stone, these power kernels are harvested, removed from the stone, washed, dried and ground into a fine powder. They are then encapsulated into a capsule form.
The bitter apricot kernel is the seed inside the apricot stone and is rich in nutrients missing from the diets of western civilisation. It is said the Hunza people of Pakistan who eat organically are some of the healthiest people in the world. An important part of their diet includes apricots and kernels.
Amygdalin, or vitamin B17, is found in high concentrations in Apricot Kernels. The Food Standards Agency posted a health alert in 2006 claiming that consuming 20-30 kernels in a short period of time could result in cyanide poisoning. However, cases of cyanide toxicity are rare. Due to this matter we recommend that you consume no more than 2 capsules per day.
