Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) is a complex polysaccharide derived from the soluble fiber of citrus peels, resulting in lower-molecular weight, un-branched chains rich in galactosyl residues. Research documents the ability of these fragments to provide an alternative target to galectins (carbohydrate-binding proteins specific to the sugar galactose) involved in the mobility and adherence to distal sites of abnormal cells. Supports normal cell-surface molecule interaction. Modified citrus pectin is easily absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract and is useful for energy metabolism as well as a laxative.
