Now Vitamins - Citrus Pectin Modified 180 Vcaps
Toxic metals, such as mercury, arsenic, cadmium, lead, and tin, present an unusually significant threat to the body’s natural defenses. Sadly, even the most health savvy individuals are not immune to these effects. The body is in a near constant state of exposure to these invisible particulates. They are found in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the foods & beverages we consume, as well as the cosmetic and chemical products we use. They enter the body through inhalation and digestion, and can also be absorbed through the skin. The human body has not yet evolved to naturally eliminate larger amounts of these toxins, and as a result, they accumulate within the fatty tissues that make up the brain and liver, as well as the lymphatic and circulatory systems.
NOW® Modified Citrus Pectin contains a patented, low-molecular weight citrus pectin called PectaSol®. Numerous studies have shown that PectaSol® can pass easily through the intestinal barrier, allowing it to work systematically throughout the body. Modified Citrus Pectin can bind to, and facilitate the excretion of low levels of the heavy metals that commonly come from routine environmental sources. A recent study has suggested that modified citrus pectin promotes healthy urinary excretion of common, mild environmental exposures of heavy metals without altering the excretion of other nutritional minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, and selenium. In addition, Modified Citrus Pectin has been shown to support healthy cellular growth, as well as cellular reproduction.*
