The Apricot kernel is a single seed found inside the stone of fresh apricot fruit and is similar in appearance to a small almond.
Apricot kernels may have certain health advantages, and some individuals believe they might aid in cancer prevention.
Scientists believe that a chemical found in apricot kernels called amygdalin might be used to destroy tumors and prevent cancer by preventing cells from replicating.
🡆The daily suggested dosage is 1-2 kernels for adults due to the risk of cyanide poisoning. Apricot kernels have an active enzyme which is known as amygdalin or Vitamin B17. As you consume the apricot kernel, this enzyme is converted into cyanide which is poisonous and can lead to some serious harm. Moderation is considered key while consuming apricot seeds for their beneficial characteristics.
