Apricot Seed – Important Information

Are You Throwing Away The Healthiest Part Of The Fruit?
Most of us enjoy the outer sweet taste of many fruits like apricots, peaches, and cherries. Did you know that inside these fruits is what many cultures believe to be the healthiest part of the fruit?  Hidden inside the armored pit is a small seed containing a highly nutritious substance called Amygdalin, most commonly known as B17.

What is B17 (Amygdalin)?
Amygdalin, often referred to as B17, is a naturally occurring molecule found in over 1,200 different foods including fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, and seeds.  B17 is found in concentrated amounts in the seeds of apricots, plums, cherries, oranges, nectarines, apples, peaches, and many other fruits. Our natural B17 supplement is extracted from bitter raw apricot seeds.

B17 Is Found in Hundreds of Foods!
In addition to apricot seeds, B17 is found in wild blackberries, wild crabapples, elderberries, apple seeds, cherry seeds, nectarine seeds, peach seeds, pear seeds, plum seeds, prune seeds, fava, bamboo, alfalfa, eucalyptus and cassava, boysenberries, huckleberries, raspberries, strawberries, squash seeds, black beans, black eyed peas, lentils, lima beans, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, cashews, macadamia nuts, spinach, watercress, sweet potatoes and yams.

Why Do I Need It?
B17 is primarily used by people to help support a healthy immune system. Many people believe that B17 is an essential nutrient and may offer a variety of benefits to our health. Please do your own research and decide how it may help you.

Why The Apricot Seeds?
You can find moderate amounts of B17 in the seeds of foods that are named above. But, of all the foods containing B17, the apricot seed has been found to have one of the highest levels.  Our seeds also contain Pangamic Acid (B15) as well as naturally occurring enzymes. These three items work together synergistically to maximize the benefits of B17 to your health.

Bitter Is Better, No Matter What Your Taste Buds Say!
Bitterness in the apricot seed indicates the amount of B17 content it contains. Sweet seeds contain little to no B17 whereas bitter seeds contain the most. California-grown apricot seeds have been shown to contain the most B17 potency over other varieties grown around the world, hence they are the most bitter. Only California-grown Bitter Raw Apricot Seeds are sold here. We recommend grinding  seeds for smoothies, shakes, oatmeal, soups, salads and more.
