Apricot Seed Extract Vitamin B17 Amygdalin 500 mg 60 Capsules


They’re also loaded with healthy fats that help to lower “bad” cholesterol. The kernels contain essential fatty acids (omega-6s and omega-3s). These helps fight heart disease, improve mental health, and have a host of other benefits. Apricot kernels also contain the chemical compound amygdalin. Though they do contain nutritional benefits that improve heart and brain health, the use of apricot seeds as a natural treatment is still largely unsubstantiated. The presence of amygdalin (known also as laetrile or vitamin B-17) within the seed can have adverse health effects.

Apricot Seed in a Convenient Capsule

Amygdalin, or B17, is a glycoside nutrient. It is found in the seeds of certain fruits, some nuts, several beans, a variety of berries, some grasses, and certain seeds. Apricot Power offers a natural supplement called Bitter Apricot Seed 500mg that seeks to deliver your B17 right from the whole-food source.

  • Vegan

This supplement does not contain gluten, pesticides, or GMOs. It is made with completely raw and natural California-grown bitter apricots. Vitamin B17 provides a range of health benefits, from helping with digestion to boosting your overall immunity. Since apricot seeds are known to have the highest quantities of vitamin B17, the following are a list of health benefits you may obtain from adding them (in their various forms) into your diet.

1. Helps Immune System Boost

Our bodies have their own defense mechanisms that fight off any potential pathogens or disease-causing organisms. We become vulnerable every time internal or external factors weaken our immune system. Therefore, we could all benefit from an immune system boost to stay healthy and disease-free.

According to some studies, Vitamin B17 may help strengthen your immune system by slowing down the spread of disease and harmful cells. Vitamin B17 may stimulate the immune system by increasing the ability of the body’s white blood cells to attack harmful cells.

2. Helps Pain Relief from Inflammation

According to several studies, Vitamin B17 may help provide pain relief from inflammation. In a case study published in the 1960s, patients who received an intravenous dose of vitamin 17 reported pain relief as the primary benefit. Animal studies also tend to confirm the analgesic effect of vitamin B17.

3. Helps Reducing High Blood Pressure

If you are already taking blood pressure medication, using Vitamin B17 in this manner is something we recommend you discuss with your trusted professional health care advisor. It’s still unclear whether Vitamin B17 can be a long-term treatment for high blood pressure. However, some studies have found that vitamin B17 may help to detox the body and lower blood pressure.

Vitamin B17 may cause the formation of thiocyanate, which is known to be a powerful agent in lowering blood pressure. Production of thiocyanate may cause a low blood pressure reaction in the body.

4. Helps Supports Liver Health

Some diseases, such as fatty liver disease, cirrhosis, or other autoimmune liver hepatitis disorders, affect the health of the liver. They cause among other effects, inflammation responses and degeneration.

A study conducted on non-human subjects showed that vitamin B17 may help to slow down or reverse the effects of these conditions. Test subjects injected with vitamin B17 showed significant, overall decline of the disease.​​​​​​​

5. Helps Antioxidant Properties

Other vitamins such as A, C, and E are already known to have antioxidant properties. There’s already a great deal of research showing why we require these antioxidant nutrients in our diets, or as dietary supplements. Among other amazing properties, these vitamins help to limit or slow down the process by which the cells in our bodies face damage.

However, more and more research now shows that these vitamins can interact with vitamin B17,  and working together with pancreatic enzymes, may help to detox our bodies. They may break down and remove toxic and potentially dangerous cells from our bodies. This may provide a great boost to our immunity and keep our bodies largely disease-free.

6. Helps Vitamin B17 May Have Anti-Aging Properties in Skincare

Like its immunity boosting and anti-inflammatory properties, vitamin B17 is used as an anti-aging remedy. Its properties are thought to protect against and assist in the removal of free radicals that cause aging and damage to skin. Consuming B17 or using B17-infused skincare products may help promote healthy, youthful skin and skin cell regeneration.
