Modified citrus pectin has demonstrated unique properties in blocking cancer cell aggregation, adhesion, and metastasis.
It appears to be a promising agent that can keep some advanced cancers in check by limiting the growth of new tumours, and by affecting the primary cancer as well. MCP also appears to show some promise as a natural, non-toxic chelating agent that binds to heavy metals like cadmium, lead, mercury, and arsenic and helps the body excrete them in the urine.
- Pectin is a complex carbohydrate that is abundantly present in citrus fruits. Modified citrus pectin (MCP) is composed of short, non-branched carbohydrate chains derived from the peel and pulp of citrus fruits.
- Compelling research suggests that modified citrus pectin may help block the growth and metastasis of solid tumours such as breast, colon, and prostate cancers.
- Intriguing clinical studies suggest that supplementation with MCP stabilises disease progression and lengthens PSA doubling times in men with prostate cancer.
- Modified citrus pectin may represent a safe, non-toxic d of chelating toxic metals—without the need for intravenous infusions.
- Supplementation with MCP has been shown to increase excretion of dangerous metals such as mercury, arsenic, lead, and cadmium—without removing essential minerals like calcium, magnesium, and zinc from the body.
- A clinical study showed that supplementation with an MCP-alginate complex reduced total body toxic heavy metal burden in patients with a variety of health concerns.
- Modified citrus pectin’s cancer-fighting potential may arise from its ability to interact with specialised proteins called galectins.
Galactose-binding lectins, or galectins, are carbohydrate-binding proteins detected within some cancer cells that help the cells clump or cluster together more easily. This may facilitate the growth and spread of certain types of cancer. Among the galectins, scientists believe that galectin-3 may be particularly important in numerous processes involved in cancer, such as cancer adhesion, migration, progression, and metastasis.
A growing number of studies suggest that increased levels of galectin-3 in the blood or tissue are associated with more frequent cancer metastasis or an increased stage of tumor progression.
Scientists believe that MCP may help fight certain cancers by binding with galectin-3 to help decrease cancer cell aggregation, adhesion, and metastasis.
