Pectin considerably decreases the influence of environmental hazards – absorbs and removes heavy metals, chemicals that come into the body under conditions of high gas concentration, and others, which can accrue in the body and intoxicate it.

Intestinal infections, dysbiosis and intoxication

The intestinal infection pathogens get into healthy human’s body with food. For example, serious intoxication can occur after eating contaminated food which was not maintained properly. The result is a rapid development of microbes. In the best case it threatens with diarrhea. In the worst – with the infectious Diseases Hospital.

According to scientists, galactose structure in pectin macromolecule binds protein complexes on the surface of cancer cells, which are responsible for “sticking” to the healthy tissue, and thus impedes the process of metastasis.

Nowadays cancer is a curable disease. In the treatment of cancer currently surgical treatment, chemotherapy and radiotherapy are used. Unfortunately, the use of these methods is usually accompanied by complications. Therapy brings positive results, however not everyone can stand it.

Pectin in the Dietology

Unlike other dietary fiber, pectin slows the passage of food through the colon, because of increasing its viscosity. Thus, food assimilation is more complete, and therefore organism needs less food. This characteristic is very valuable to those who sits on a diet for weight loss. Also pectin binds carbohydrates that affect weight gain.

Another positive quality of pectin is in its effect on motor function of the intestine. Pectin in the intestinal tract acts as an adsorbent and cleans the intestinal walls of fat and toxic substances. Another important fact is that pectin can excrete radionuclides, stagnant fat and excess cholesterol. These positive qualities ease further process of losing weight.

Diet is very effective in cases with the weight accumulated over the years and is already fixed. Stagnant fat is much harder to break than edematous fat accumulated within six months. According to dieticians pectin diet easily copes with body fat and body cleansing. According to the research, it is proved that consumption of 25 grams of apple pectin extract can reduce weight by 300 grams.

So, for the weight losing Pectin extract has such properties:

• Excretes cholesterol and stagnant fat cells, toxins and radionuclides

• Reduces appetite, resulting in reduced daily calorie intake

• Excellent impact on intestinal microflora

Pectin’s history

The history of pectin began in the late 18th century, when in 1790 the French chemist Louis Nicolas Vauquelin, exploring vegetable products, isolated from fruit juice substance that had gelling properties. Forty years later Brakonno named it pectic acid (from the Greek “pektos” – “congealed, curdled”)

In 1937 Schneider and Bock first established structure formula of pectin, but its industrial production started only in the second half of the twentieth century.

Pectin substances have beneficial effects; they are absolutely harmless natural detoxifiers that subtract heavy metals, radionuclides and other poisonous substances from the body. That’s why they are sometimes called the “gift of nature”.

At hazardous working conditions the increasing of introduction to the organism of pectin and pectin products causes reduce of occupational diseases. In this regard, USSR Ministry of Health in 1968 legislatively provided its issuing to workers along with dairy products. Pectin was issued in the amount of 8-10 g as a jelly or pectin’s concentrate with tea. In 1979 pectin was approved by the chief state sanitary doctor of the USSR as a food product.

Today the scale of pectin production is significant, as well as the variety its application areas. In the list of food additives pectin is labeled as E440 and belongs to the class of consistency improvers: stabilizers, thickeners and gelatinizators. Negative effect of pectin is not established and its use as a food additive is allowed without restrictions in all countries.


Apple pectin extract – drink of everyday use with a pleasant aroma and taste of apples.

Pectin binds toxins, heavy metals, radionuclides, nitrates and other chemical compounds, adjusts function of the intestine and its microflora, reduces the level of cholesterol and sugar in blood.

Hippocrates believed that people should live 120-150 years, and almost all diseases come with the food. Pectins, being soluble dietary fibers, are recommended as a mandatory component of the modern theory of adequate nutrition.

The use of therapeutic doses of pectin, which is an average of 100 grams per day of our drink, – that’s the key to good health.
