Modified Citrus Pectin x 120 Capsules
- Vegetarian product
Modified citrus pectin (also known as citrus pectin, Pecta-Sol and MCP) is a modified, more digestible form of pectin. It is obtained from the peels, seeds and pulp of citrus fruits using a chemical extraction process.
Modified citrus pectin (MCP): Contains gel-forming polysaccharides from the cell walls of citrus, a form of viscous dietary fibre. MCP may bind to toxins, supporting gastrointestinal detoxification and excretion.
Modified citrus pectin is different from other pectin because of the way it is prepared. It is modified by a proprietary process, which reduces the molecular weight of the pectin molecule. Average molecular weight: 30kD; pH: 6.0-7.2; Methoxylation: not more than 5%.
