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.*
