Apricot kernels have traditionally been a part of the Hunza people’sdiet. Because of the presence of amygdalin, which gives them a slightlybitter taste, their consumption must be limited to small amounts - 1 to 2 kernels per day.

Apricot kernels are the kernels found inside apricot pits and have a strong bitter taste. They make up an important part of the diet of the Hunza people, known for their longevity. Vitamin B17 (amygdalin) gives the kernels their bitterness and transforms into cyanide in the body. Cyanide is toxic in larger amounts, but useful in moderate amounts (up to 10 apricot kernels a day) because weak and diseased cells (e.g. cancerous) are not able to metabolize it and cannot survive.

Vitamin B17 is also connected with the lowering of blood pressure and soothing of arthritis pain. Apricot kernels contain a broad spectrum of antioxidants that neutralize the effects of free radicals, responsible for premature signs of aging.

WARNING: Apricot kernels should not be consumed by children, pregnant women and nursing mothers. If nausea occurs while enjoying apricot kernels, stop eating and seek medical help. In case of excessive consumption of apricot kernels, poisoning may occur, so the recommended daily amounts should not be exceeded. A dietary supplement is not a substitute for a balanced and diverse diet.

PlanetBIO apricot kernels are obtained from organic apricots grown in Turkey.

Is there such a thing as free shipping?

Sure, why not? Here's how it's possible to get your products free of shipping charges.

Do you know the good ol' mantra "Customer is King; we appreciate our customers and would do anything for them" ? Well, it's true for us too, but then again we want the feeling to be mutual. So how can we help each other?

You help us with ordering more than just the minimum order (which is 30 EUR) => to pay the bills, salaries and to grow, offer you more, higher quality, special prices => and we promise to give back to you by not charging the shipping costs.

We're currently shipping to the following countries with the following shipping charges:

  • Zone 0 (Slovenia, home country): 5,00 € (well, they are closer...)
  • Zone 1 & 2 (Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, Austria, Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Croatia): 11,99 €
  • Zone 3 (Czech Republic, Slovakia, France, Hungary, Poland, Great Britain, Lithuania): 15,99 €
  • Zone 4 (Estonia, Latvia, Romania, Finland, Spain, Sweden): 20,99 €
  • Zone 5 (Greece, Ireland, Portugal): 22,99 €
  • Zone 6 (Bulgaria): 31,99 €
  • Please note: We don't send to Switzerland, Turkey and Norway due to too high costs of transport & customs.
  • Unfortunately we don’t offer free shipping for orders from Grand Canary Island and Tenerife.. We are trying our best to find the best solution.

... and we take away that cost if your order:

  • Zone 0: over 20,00 €
  • Zone 1 & 2: over 60,00 €
  • Zone 3: over 80,00 €
  • Zone 4 & 5: over 100,00 €
  • Zone 6: over 120,00 €

Prices of products vary from as low as 2,49 € and up to 24,99 €, but on average they're around 14€. It's not hard to get total amount up to 100€. You don't have to, but if you do, we take care of the expensive transport.

Now, if you order (Zone 3 for example) for let say 64€, you pay extra 16€ for transporting the goods to your place. Wouldn't you rather top that order with another product of 16+€, and get the whole package without shipping charges? We're basically giving you the products for free and covering the transport fee ourselves, but have the opportunity to grow as a company, since we earn more that way.

How's that for a win-win situation?
