Apricot Kernels

The pit of the apricot fruit is often shelled and eaten directly or used in cooking similarly to the use of almonds. Oil pressed from the kernels has also been used for cooking in the Mediterranean for centuries. These kernels have been used in Europe for over 150 years in the treatment of cell growths.

It has been suggested that the cyanide in apricot kernels is bound and is not free to circulate, although there is no evidence to support this as of yet. In 2006 the Cochrane Collaboration performed a systematic review of all of the available evidence and found that there was no support for its use in cell growths. This greatly reduced interest in future research, although they did also suggest that more targeted research was required before a final conclusion could be made.

Cyanide content
The kernel of the apricot contains cyanide, and when they are eaten in excess, may cause cyanide poisoning. On average, each kernel contains about 0.5mg of cyanide. Symptoms of cyanide poisoning include: fever, nausea, rash, headacheinsomnia, thirst, anxiety, lethargy, weakness, confusion, and a drop in blood pressure. The skin of someone who has been poisoned with cyanide will often turn pink or cherry red. It is estimated that a lethal dose of cyanide is between 0.5 3.5mg/kg of body weight. So the average 70kg person (155lbs) would have to eat over 70 kernels to reach toxic cyanide levels.

How to take Apricot Kernels
Because there is insufficient research evaluating whether or not the cyanide in apricot kernels is bound, it is advisable to keep portion sizes small. Follow the directions on the packaging and be sure to store packages out of the reach of pets and children.

Important Information
Due to the risk of cyanide poisoning, apricot kernels should not be eaten in large amounts. Do not exceed recommended dosages. Keep package out of the reach of pets and children. Pregnant and breast-feeding women should avoid use.
