Modified Citrus Pectin Powder x 454g
- Vegetarian product
Modified citrus pectin (MCP) is derived from the soluble fibre of citrus fruit peels and a galectin-3 inhibitor with potential antioxidant, hypocholesterolaemic, immune-stimulatory, metal chelating, and possible anti-metastatic activities.
MCP is a low molecular weight version of pectin composed of short, slightly-branched carbohydrate chains and is modified for enhanced absorbability. The bioactive fragments, most likely the galactan-containing portion, of pectin binds to galectin-3, a carbohydrate-binding protein involved in inflammation. MCP may decrease prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels and may remove heavy metals. Also, unsaturated oligogalacturonic acids in MCP may stimulate the immune system through the activation of natural killer cells, cytotoxic T-cells, and B-cells.
