B17 & Apricot Kernel Common Questions


Q: How much B17 is in each apricot kernel?
A: Approximately 10mg of B17 is found in each apricot kernel.

Q: How many apricot kernels should I take each day?
A: You will need to determine the best amount for yourself. With that said most people find that one apricot kernel for every 10 pounds of body weight per day spread out throughout the day is a good amount. You should build up to this amount over a few days or even weeks. Start with one apricot kernel an hour and see how you do. If you notice any unwanted side effects like dizziness, headache or upset stomach, then you are consuming too many kernels too fast. Eating six to ten kernels daily is a very common amount. But remember to never over consume apricot kernels, always start with a small amount and slowly increase that amount if you feel you want to.

Q: Can I take apricot kernels and B17 together?
A: Yes, however they should be spread out at least one hour apart from each other. If you notice any unwanted side effects like dizziness, head ache or upset stomach then youíre consuming too much too fast.

Q: How much B17 should I take daily?
A: Quantities vary from person to person depending on their needs. Research all products before consumption. Consult your naturopath, homeopathic physician, kinesiologist or physician of choice. As with apricot kernels, always start with a small amount and slow move to a higher amount if desired.
