APRICOT KERNEL

Description

Apricot kernel is a powerful, bitter seed that has been linked to cancer-fighting claims due to its potent source of vitamin B17. It is believed that consuming vitamin B17 in the form of food or supplement can boost immune system. However, apricot kernel should only be taken in moderation as it contains a natural chemical called Amygdalin which converts into cyanide upon ingesting.
