Apricot Kernels


Apricot is a fruit that gets its name from the Greek ‘malakos’ which means soft. It is also known as alligator pear and ‘pits’. Apricot is a rich source of vitamin A and various B vitamins which aid our bodies in producing red blood cells.

Apricot also helps us to absorb iron and prevents conditions like anaemia. The vitamin A present in apricots can improve vision. Vitamin C found in this fruit fights against cold, cough, flu and heart problems like high cholesterol and hypertension. Antioxidants can protect our body from cancer, ageing and heart diseases. The phosphorus present in apricots works against osteoporosis.

We urge you to do some of your own research on the potential toxicity of Apricot Kernel. There is a substantial body of conflicting research that has arisen with the rise in belief of Apricot Kernel potentially being a natural cancer cure due to the B17 they contain and there are many food safety bodies that warn that the kernels could be deadly to a toddler at the very least and very toxic to an adult.  At present, there are not any trials that have been conducted to verify the claims one way or another.
