Bitter Raw Apricot Pits, 2 lbs
- Natural source of amygdalin (B17)
- California grown without pesticides & herbicides
Did you know that some fruit seeds contain a highly valuable nutrient called amygdalin? Stone fruit seeds from peaches, nectarines, and plums have a moderate amount of amygdalin, which is also known as vitamin B17. But apricot seeds are among the foods with the highest levels of amygdalin.
What is amygdalin?
Amygdalin is a naturally occurring compound that may support immune health.* Amygdalin has been used safely for many years for health care, but it is no longer recognized by practitioners of Western medicine. We urge customers to do their own research to decide how apricot seeds may help them.
Bitter, raw apricot pits (in shell)
Remove the hard outer shell with a nutcracker. If you are new to ingesting apricot seeds, do not consume more than 3 seeds per hour. Start with 1 seed and do not consume more than 10 seeds in a single day.
If you don’t like the bitter amaretto taste of whole apricot seeds, then grind them up and mix into smoothies, shakes, oatmeal, or yogurt.
Not intended for children or women who are pregnant or nursing.
Store in a cool, dry place. Do not freeze.
