Apricot seeds contains a toxic chemical known as amygdalin, which is also referred to as Laetrile. Some companies call this compound “vitamin B17” in order to label and market the product as an essential substance. In the body, this chemical is converted to cyanide, which is poisonous and can cause serious harm.
There has been interest in using apricot kernels, which are inside the seeds, to fight cancer because of this toxic chemical that fights cancer cells before it’s converted to cyanide and spread throughout the body.
Some research shows that consuming large numbers of bitter kernels every day over your lifetime may ward off cancer and kill existing cancer. Vitamin B17 is a unique compound that is believed to work with the immune system to fight malignant tumours. A reportedly non-toxic form is called laetrile and is a controversial treatment used in some cancer clinics around the world.
