1.Fights cancer — In apricot seeds, there is a chemical called amygdalin. This toxic chemical, also known as laetrile, is converted by the body to cyanide. However, the cyanide, in small doses, may be able to kill off cancer cells. Some studies suggest that this is true; however, there are a number of studies that point to a potential health risk of using this chemical to kill carcinogens.
2.Boost immunity –– If you eat SWEET apricot seeds (the bitter apricot seeds are the kind with amygdalin), you will provide your body with a wide range of immune-boosting vitamins and minerals. One of the many health benefits of apricot seed kernels is that apricot seeds can strengthen your immune system and reduce your risk of coming down with a cold or the flu.
3.Improve heart health – Eating sweet apricot seeds can lower your blood pressure, reducing your risk of a wide range of cardiovascular disorders. Thanks to the Vitamin B17 (the fancy term for amygdalin), you can get your blood pressure under control.
4.Improve skin health – Apricot seed kernels are one of the most popular skin treatments around, thanks to the fact that they contain a lot of skin-friendly nutrients. For example, apricot seed oil is loaded with gamma linoleic acid, which helps to tone your skin and make it fresh and firm. The Vitamins A and E in the apricot seed oil will reduce skin aging, can prevent inflammation, and may even be able to fight eczema.
