Modified Citrus Pectin Powder Overview
Now Modified Citrus Pectin Powder contains perhaps the highest quality and most sought after dietary fiber on the market. Modified citrus pectin contains the well-researched PectaSol fiber, which has been shown to pass through the intestinal barrier where it can then bind to heavy metals and circulating toxins, ultimately eliminating harmful waste products through the urea cycle. Now Modified Citrus Pectin Powder comes from the pulps and peels of citrus fruits like grapefruits, lemons, tangerines and oranges. It’s then modified by enzymatic reactions to reduce the molecular size of the citrus pectin fragments, resulting in a highly bioavailable and effective compound.
Modified citrus pectin powder is a complex polysaccharide (carbohydrate) rich in citrus fruit galactosyl residues. This allows for complete absorption compared to the incomplete absorption observed from unmodified citrus pectin. Now Modified Citrus Pectin Powder can help boost your immune system, improve digestive health and encourage full body cleansing.
Modified Citrus Pectin Powder Description from Now
NOW Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) contains PectaSol, a patented, low molecular weight citrus pectin that can pass through the intestinal barrier so it can work systematically. MCP can bind to and facilitate excretion of low levels of heavy metals that commonly come from mild environmental exposure. A recent study indictaes that modified citrus pectin promotes healthy urinary excretion of common, mild environmental exposures of heavy metals such as mercury, arsenic, cadmium, lead and tin wihtout altering excretion of other nutritional minerals, including calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and selenium. In addition, MCP has been shown to supporty healthy cellular growth and reproduction.
