- Binds to toxins for excretion
- Safe and effective
Modified citrus pectin (MCP) is a complex polysaccharide sourced from the soluble fibre of lemon peel. It has a low molecular weight and size, which allows it to pass through the intestinal brush border into the bloodstream for better bioavailability and therapeutic value. Once within the circulatory system, it gains exposure to every tissue and organ system within the body to exert its gentle detoxifying action. It selectively binds to accumulated toxins, such as arsenic and harmful metals including lead and cadmium, for safe and effective urinary excretion. This form of elimination does not alter the kidney’s critical task of mineral retention for calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, or selenium.
The systemic benefits of MCP are effective for accumulated toxins and heavy metals from typical environmental exposure. A clinical study employing MCP for lead toxicity in children aged 5–12 has proven effective and side effect–free. The pilot study conducted at the Children’s Hospital at Zhejiang University School of Medicine yielded dramatic results with an average increase in 24‑hour urinary excretion of lead measuring 132%.
MCP is certainly a nutraceutical worthy of consideration as an agent for detoxification and future clinical research for alternative health.
