Bitter Apricot seeds is one of the highest sources of amygdalin which is sometimes referred to as Vitamin B-17 or Laetrile.
In 1952, a biochemist named Dr. Ernst Krebb, Jr. in San Francisco decided that cancer was a metabolic reaction to a poor diet, and a missing nutrient from modern man’s diet could be the key to overcoming cancer. His research led to a compound found in many edible plants throughout nature. That compound is amagdylin, the highest concentrations were found in apricot seed kernels. these kernels are dried, then made into a powder for easy consumption.
Amagdylin is found with the highest concentration and necessary enzymes in our apricot seed kernels A primitive tribe and that still exists today, the Hunzas, were known to consume large amounts of apricot seed kernels, in fact, they even used the seeds as a form of currency. The hard pit had to be broken to get to the soft kernels which they consumed daily. Consuming the apricot seed powder makes it easy to use and measure. The Hunza’s did not have any incidence of cancer with them at all, ever. And they had long, healthy life spans. Laetrile was created by simply extracting amagdylin from the soft apricot kernels, purifying it and putting it into a concentrated form.
The seeds kernels are removed, dried, and made into a powder, you can add it to curries, soups, vegetables, fruit juices, smoothies or cereals. Just sprinkle a teaspoon or two daily. Apricot seed is also a good source of iron, potassium, and phosphorus
