Bitter apricot kernels have been used in ancient Asian medicine for centuries. The bitter taste is due to a compound in the kernels known as B17. Our bitter raw apricot kernels are manually harvested and raw. The kernels can be chewed or ground and sprinkled onto food or added to a juice, coffee or smoothie.
What is B17?
B17 is a substance found naturally in over 10 different foods, including the seeds of many fruits, such as apricots, plums, cherries, oranges, nectarines, apples and peaches, as well as many raw nuts. Our natural B17 supplement is extracted from apricot kernels. B17 was the name given to the purified form of the molecule (Amygdalin) by a biochemist named Ernst T Krebs in 1952.
Why is B17 Important?
We believe that a balanced diet is essential to a healthy life. Few of us consume enough vitamins and minerals from the foods we eat. Nutritional supplements become necessary for optimal body function. B17 is just one of the many nutrients our body needs.
B17 Found in Hundreds of Foods!
In addition to apricot seeds, B17 is found in wild blackberries, wild crabapples, elderberries, apple seeds, cherry seeds, nectarine seeds, peach seeds, pear seeds, plum seeds, prune seeds, fava, bamboo, alfalfa, eucalyptus and cassava, boysenberries, huckleberries, raspberries, strawberries, squash seeds, black beans, black eyed peas, lentils, lima beans, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, cashews, macadamia nuts, spinach, watercress, sweet potatoes and yams.
Why Apricot Kernels?
Of all the foods containing B17, the apricot kernel has been found to have one of the highest levels, in addition to containing B15 and natural enzymes.
