Apricot Kernel Overview

Apricot Kernel Apricots are a type of fruit native to China and are a good source of vitamins A and C, potassium, and dietary fiber. They are also a source of antioxidants, which may help to protect the body from damage by harmful molecules known as free radicals. The pit of the apricot contains a seed, which is known as the apricot kernel. Apricot kernel supplements are different from apricot supplements as they are made from apricot kernels while apricot supplements are made from the whole apricot. Apricot kernel supplements are high in a compound called amygdalin, which is sometimes referred to as vitamin B17 (although laetrile, a semi-synthetic form of amygdalin is also known as vitamin B17), which is purported to have numerous health benefits, including as an anti-cancer agent, but this has not been shown in studies. It is important to note that consumption of amygdalin and laetrile is associated with cyanide poisoning after they are metabolized by the body. Apricot kernel supplements therefore must be used cautiously. Apricot kernel also contains pangamic acid, which is sometimes referred to as vitamin B15.
