Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) Fights Cancer

What is Modified Citrus Pectin?
Pectin is a soluble fiber found in large concentration in the peel and pulp of citrus fruits and apples. It is widely used as a thickening or gelling agent in jams, marmalades, jellies and preserves.

Modified citrus pectin (MCP) is pectin derived from citrus fruit peels and pulps that has been modified by PH, temperature and enzymatic process. This modification breaks down the long carbohydrate chains of pectin into shorter, non-branched chains that dissolve easily in water. MCP is better absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed throughout the body. As a result, MCP is a potentially powerful, natural cancer fighter.
