Profile: An apricot kernel is an apricot seed.This is well-known for the amygdaline, a drug sold as cancer treatment, along with the related drug laetrile, with some scientific evidence for its efficacy.
Seeds or apricot kernels are cultivated in Central Asia. Oil was used as cooking oil pressed from these cultivars. Apricot kernels can be solid and bitter occasionally.

They are used in apricot jam recipes and Italian amaretto cookies and liqueur. Taken in excess, cyanide poisoning can cause symptoms, including nausea, fatigue, rash, headache, sleeplessness, increased appetite, exhaustion, lethargy, nervousness, various aches and pains in joints and muscles and a decrease in blood pressure.



The apricot kernel is the seed that comes from inside the apricot stone. It is obtained by opening and removing the hard stone coat.These kernels can be bitter or sweet and have different amygdalin levels. Because the amygdalin quality of bitter and sweet varieties can not be clearly differentiated from the consumption advice applies to both bitter and sweet apricot kernels.
Apricot kernel contains an amygdalin toxic compound. Within the body, this material is converted to toxic cyanide. There was an interest in using apricot seed to combat cancer as amygdaline was first picked up and turned into cyanide by cancer cells. Cyanide was hoped to damage only the tumor. Evidence has shown, however, that this is not accurate.

In addition, amygdalin is converted into cyanide in the stomach. The cyanide then moves through the entire body , causing significant damage, including death.
