What are Apricot Kernels?

Apricot kernels are the seeds of the apricot fruit and look similar to almonds. Apricot kernels are high in monounsaturated fat, contain a good source of fibre, protein, amygdalin (also called B17) and pangamic acid (also called B15). There are two types of apricot kernels, sweet or bitter. It is the amygdalin in the kernels that give this not unpleasant bitter taste. The bitter taste can be compared to almonds, but is much stronger. Eating apricot kernels is popular and very common in Turkey, Iran and other middle eastern countries.


Health Leads wild crafted bitter apricot kernels are fresh, full of flavour and with all of the valuable nutrients preserved. We treat our bitter apricot kernels with ozone to ensure they are free of moulds and pathogens which helps maintain the freshness of the kernels.


Why use Apricot Kernels?

It has been noted that tribes like the Hunza, Hopi Indians and the Karakorum have a high intake of vitamin B17 and, unlike people in the West, do not suffer from common Western diseases.


The best way to enjoy apricot kernels is to simply chew them as a nutritious tasty snack, but do not swallow them whole. Some foods are an acquired taste, and this can be said for bitter apricot kernels, so when you first try them you might want to do so with orange juice. Why not add them to your cereal, or grind them up and add honey. A suggested dose of 1 to 2 whole kernels per day is equal to approximately 2 of our capsules.


And if you are not too keen on the bitter taste why not try Health Leads Ground Apricot Kernels 500mg x 90 capsules.
