In the remote recesses of the Himalaya Mountains, between West Pakistan, India, and China, there is a tiny kingdom called Hunza. These people are known world over for their amazing longevity and good health. It is not uncommon for Hunzakuts to live beyond 100 years and some even to 120 or more. Visiting medical teams from the outside world report that there has never been a case of cancer in Hunza.
Although presently accepted science is unable to explain why these people should have been free of cancer, it is interesting to note that the traditional Hunza diet contains over 200 times more nitrilosides than the average Americandiet. In fact, in that land where there is no such thing as money, a man’s wealth is measured by the number of apricot trees he owns, hence the name Hunza Gold. And the most prized of all foods is considered to be the apricot seed (kernel).
The women of Hunza are renowned for the strikingly smooth skin even into advanced age. Generally their faces appear 15 to 20 years younger than their counterparts in other areas of the world. They claim that their secret is merely the apricot oil which they apply to their skins almost daily. Prince Khan of Hunza described how it was not uncommon to eat 30 to 50 apricot seeds as an after-lunch snack. (Although, we don’t recommend consuming that many at one sitting). Most of the Hunza people are healthy, vigorous, and vital right up to within a few days of the end. We know that quality of life is more important than the quantity, but the Hunzakuts have both.
Cancer is non existent among the Hunza people when they consume their traditional diet which, in addition to the apricots, consists of mainly grain and fresh vegetables. These include:
- Broad beans
- Sprouting pulse or gram
- Berries of various sorts
All of these, with the exception of lettuce and turnips, contain nitriloside or Vitamin B17. The Hunza people utilize every part of the apricot. The apricots are eaten fresh in the summer and dried for the winter months. They remove the kernels, grind and sometimes roast them. The apricot oil is used for cooking, dressings and as facial lotion.
Many people have come to realize that it is better to take preventative measures to disease by incorporating super foods such as the apricot kernels, dried apricots, fresh organic pineapples, coconut water, avacados and the myriad of delectable raw fruits and vegetables that God has provided for our well being.
Even the American Cancer Society and other such agencies are telling North Americans to eat your fruits and vegetables to reduce your chances of getting diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, etc. We at Hunza Gold believe that apricot kernels are the most important super food component provided to mankind and that every person should be taking them daily!
