NUA Naturals Bitter Apricot Kernals - 175g

  • Bitter Apricot Kernels (Semen Armeniacae Amarum) have long been used in traditional Chinese medicine to relieve coughs, asthma and lubricate the bowel
  • The use of amygdalin to treat certain conditions is so controversial that we cannot write about it, therefore we encourage people to do their own research
  • NUA Naturals Bitter Apricot Kernals
  • The kernels are rich in amygdalin - also known as vitamin B17 (though not technically a vitamin)

Product Description

  • Therefore it is recommended to consume no more than three apricot kernels per day
  • It is also useful to remember here that salt, while beneficial and in fact essential to human health, if consumed in excessive quantities can be toxic
  • Apricot kernels can be very bitter and it is best to take them with food
  • It is important to remember that amygdalin is found in the pips of many fruits such as apples, grapes, cherries, peaches, plums and nectarines though not in such high concentrations as found in bitter apricot kernels
  • The kernels can be ground into juices, smoothies or other recipes
  • One of the issues with bitter apricot kernels is that the metabolism of amygdalin produces hydrogen cyanide – a potent toxin
  • Pack size: 175g
