Bitter Apricot Kernels & Bitter Almonds.

Updated 06 Jan, 2013

Nutritionists often recommend eating rational quantities of fruit seeds as part of a healthy lifestyle. Bitter Apricot Kernels or Bitter Almonds are popular choices.

The Food Standards Agency advise that consumption should not exceed 1-2 bitter apricot kernels per day. People on medication, or those with food allergies or intolerance, should take medical advice before taking. Apricot kernels can cause a temporary low blood pressure reaction.

Try mixing milled flax seeds into a pot of yoghurt (Budwig diet), and mix in some ground bitter apricot kernels. This is an amazing food, and truly delicious.

As part of a healthy lifestyle, your physician may recommend taking a multivitamin supplement, a digestive enzyme supplement or fresh pineapple, selenium, zinc, lysine, and vitamin C. Eat plenty of organic fruit & vegetables, avoid refined white sugar, drink plenty of water, and take regular exercise.
