Fractionated pectin – also known as modified citrus pectin – is a complex polysaccharide obtained from the peel and pulp of citrus fruits. It's rich in galactoside residues – molecules that have an affinity for binding to certain types of unwanted cells.*
These galactoside residues will preferentially bind to the lectins on the cell membranes of the unwanted cell, in turn preventing the attachment of the unwanted cell to a normal cell, thus inhibiting the growth of the unwanted cell.*
Because Thorne's Fractionated Pectin Powder is a powder, it can be taken in higher amounts for those desiring to do so. It provides nutritional support for oncology patients and for liver detoxification.*
Suggested Use: Mix 1 scoop one to three times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner. Mix with a small amount of warm water in a blender or shaker, then dilute with juice of choice.
One Scoop (5 g) Contains:
