Pecta-Sol™ Powder, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is a unique form of modified citrus pectin.
Pecta-Sol™ modified citrus pectin is a complex polysaccharide (a type of carbohydrate) that is derived from citrus peels and pulp. Regular citrus pectin molecules are long chains of highly branched glucose molecules, which are too large and complex to be absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract.
Pecta-Sol™ modified citrus pectin has undergone a unique manufacturing process that renders the pectin molecules shorter and less branched than regular citrus pectins. This special process ensures the lowest degree of methylation with a molecular weight within a specific range of 10,000-20,000 daltons. Low methylation increases the number of galactosyl binding sites, thus enhancing the intensity of Pecta-Sol™’s immune supporting benefits. The shorter, unbranched chains of modified citrus pectin optimize its reliable absorption, bioactivity, and utilization of its important polysaccharide components.
The pH of Pecta-Sol™ modified citrus pectin is within the preferred range for maximum activity. Pecta-Sol™ modified citrus pectin is rich in galactosyl residues, the key component thought to confer modified citrus pectin’s health benefits. Galactosyl residues interfere with the binding of galectins, a type of protein on the surface of cells. Galactosyl specifically interferes with the carbohydrate-binding galectin 3, which has been identified on prostate, breast, colon, brain, skin, lymphatic, and larynx cells. By interfering with galectin binding, galactosyl interferes with undesirable cell-cell interactions, thereby exerting unique assistance to the immune system.
