Modified Citrus Pectin

Modified Citrus Pectin Powder( short for MCP ), also known as Low Molecular Weight Pectin ( short for LCP ) is a substance derived from the peel and pulp of citrus fruits, such as oranges and lemons. It is a modified form of citrus pectin that undergoes a process to reduce its molecular weight, making it more easily absorbable by the body.

Modified citrus pectin powder may have health benefits such as inhibiting certain cancer cell growth, supporting the immune system, and aiding in detoxification by binding to heavy metals in the body.
