Introducing a new standard of Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) –
The first Pure MCP completely soluble in Water

  • HIGHEST BIO-AVAILABILITY: unlike other brands, our MCP dissolves in water. This makes it more likely to enter the circulation and bind to and block Galectin-3 and heavy metals*
  • LOW MOLECULAR WEIGHT: 5 to 22 kDa molecular weight range
  • PURE – NO ADDITIVES: the powder contain Modified Citrus Pectin and nothing else
  • MADE IN EU 
  • VEGAN INGREDIENTS
  • Major Keywords: Detox, Colon, Breast, Prostate

*Notes:
– Water solubility is crucial for the bioavailability of natural compounds, allowing them to pass through the intestinal wall and enter the bloodstream.
– Substances that are not water-soluble might become more soluble with higher water temperatures, but this can negatively impact the properties of the compound. MCS Formulas MCP dissolves in cold water, maintaining its beneficial properties

WHY MODIFIED CITRUS PECTIN*

Pectin, a natural polysaccharide found in the cell walls of most higher plants such as citrus fruits, has gained increasing attention over the past decade due to its potential health benefits. (1)

Pectin and Galectin-3

One of the main mechanisms attributed to pectin’s health benefits is the inhibition of Galectin-3 (2). Galectin-3 is a type of protein that consists of beta-galactoside-binding proteins involved in many cellular functions. It contains a carbohydrate recognition domain that allows it to bind to sugars found on the surface of cells and extracellular matrix components.

Galectin-3 is expressed in various cell types, including macrophages, epithelial cells, and fibroblasts. Its expression can increase in response to stimuli such as inflammation and tissue injury. Galectin-3 plays roles in cell adhesion, cell growth and differentiation, immune response, and fibrosis. Elevated levels of Galectin-3 have been associated with various diseases, making it a potential therapeutic target for health challenges involving inflammation and fibrosis (3, 4).

Indeed, Galectin-3  is involved with several cellular activities, which include apoptosis, cell migration, proliferation, angiogenesis and epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) and it is therefore known to play a key role in the spread and metastasis process (5). In unhealthy cells, Galectin-3 over-expressing cells show an increased migration, whereas down-regulation of galectin-3 expression results in decreased migratory and invasive characteristics of unhealthy cells (6).

Pectin and Heavy Metals

Pectin may also bind with heavy metals and toxins in the body, facilitating their excretion (7). Its binding properties are explored for environmental purposes, such as removing heavy metals from wastewater (8). This ability to form complexes with metal ions makes pectin useful in various applications where such interactions are beneficial.

Pectin and Digestive Health

As a soluble fiber, pectin can absorb water and form a gel-like substance in the digestive tract, supporting digestion and regular bowel movements. It also provides nourishment for beneficial gut bacteria. The fermentation of pectin by gut bacteria produces short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), such as butyrate, which support a health colon (9).

Therefore, incorporating pectin-rich foods such as apples, citrus fruits, and berries into the diet can provide multiple health benefits.

The Bioavailability Challenge of Pectin and the Emergence of Modified Citrus Pectin

Due to its large molecular size, pectin is poorly absorbed in the small intestine and passes largely intact into the colon (10). Therefore, in this case, its health benefits will be limited mainly to digestive health.

To enable pectin to be absorbed into the bloodstream, where it can inhibit Galectin-3 and interact with heavy metals, the large pectin molecule have to be broken down into smaller pieces through enzymatic alterations. These smaller pieces of pectin are known as Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP).

Therefore, Modified Citrus Pectin is a form of Pectin but with a lower molecular weight. MCP has a lower molecular weight than regular pectin, typically less than 20,000 Daltons, compared to pectin’s range of 60,000 to 130,000 Daltons.

Modified Citrus Pectin at MCS Formulas: Introducing a New Standard

Not all MCP powders are created equal, and most MCP powders available as food supplements are not fully water-soluble.

Our new MCS Modified Citrus Pectin formulation stands out for its purity, solubility, and bioavailability. Unlike established MCP powders, ours is highly soluble in water, at room temperature, leading to better bioavailability. This enhanced dissolution increases the potential for effective Galectin-3 inhibition and detoxification.
