Hunza bitter apricot kernel oil for health and vitality

One of the most studied properties of Hunza bitter apricot kernel oil is its ability to fight cancer cells and prevent their spread in the body. This valuable quality is due to the amygdalin contained in the oil. Amygdalin, also known as vitamin B17, is a powerful antioxidant that destroys cancer cells. The substance is also found in bitter almonds, cherries, some types of apples, nectarines and peaches, plums, some seeds (flax, black millet), etc. 

Observing the beneficial effect of amygdalin, scientists created a synthetic vitamin B17 called laetrile, which is used in anticancer therapies. The vitamin B17 contained in Hunza bitter apricot kernel oil is completely natural and, along with the other active substances in the oil, contributes to its wide-ranging health effects:
