Health Canada recently issued a warning for products labeled Novadalin B17Amygdalin, and Bitter Apricot Kernel. According to Health Canada, these products claim to treat cancer with no evidence of benefit. Furthermore, these products contain apricot kernel extract, which may contain amygdalin. This compound can potentially release cyanide in the body when ingested. This can lead to serious side effects, including death. Health Canada advises any consumer who has used these products to stop taking them immediately and to contact a healthcare provider. These products are also available for sale online in the U.S.
