Original Question: ‘Could you please supply me with some information on cold
pressed apricot oil? What quantities of B17 does it contain and what dosage is
recommended to take internally?’
As far as I can gather, apricot oil does not contain vitamin B17. This is because B17 is water soluble and not soluble in oil. The original method of obtaining B17 from the apricot kernels was to chew them.
The recommended dose per person is something of an unknown factor but the recommended minimum dose is around 50mg.
If you consider that each apricot kernel contains something in the realm of three to five mg of vitamin B17 depending on its size and where it was grown, then the recommended dose would be about 8-10 kernels daily
Note also that there has been a lot of conjecture surrounding the use of Vitamin B17.
