The pain and suffering of arthritis is well known by a large portion of the population since about 50 million people in the U.S. currently suffer from some form of this debilitating condition, without effective or long-term relief.

Recent scientific breakthroughs have shown that the molecule Galectin-3 is a culprit biomarker that is actively responsible for the inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint destruction, which is characteristic of this degenerative disease. Published research has likewise demonstrated that an all-natural dietary supplement, modified citrus pectin (MCP), has the unique ability to inhibit Galectin-3, and thus reduce the pain and inflammation of chronic arthritis.  

The Secret Behind Modified Citrus Pectin’s Rapid Relief
As an integrative physician and MCP expert, I have been recommending this versatile natural compound for cancer and heavy metal toxicity in my clinical practice for over 15 years. Since the 1990s, published research has demonstrated MCP’s effectiveness in preventing cancer growth and metastasis through its ability to block harmful Galectin-3 molecules, which have long been known to promote the growth and spread of metastatic cancer. Clinical research also established MCP’s ability to reduce heavy metal body burden, safely and naturally, without affecting essential minerals.

These proven benefits make MCP an important dietary supplement for protecting and promoting long-term health. But early on, it was remarkable how quickly this simple natural product could offer relief from the pain of arthritis and joint problems. After starting on MCP for just a few weeks or less, my patients would often report significant reduction in joint pain and stiffness.

Initially, I had suspected that this favorable effect was likely due to MCP’s proven heavy metal chelation properties. This is certainly part of the big picture. However, we now understand better the primary role of Galectin-3 in triggering and promoting inflammation and fibrosis within joints, organs and tissues. Elevated levels of Galectin-3 in the body fuel the development and progression of numerous degenerative diseases related to chronic inflammation, fibrosis, malignant cellular growth, and eventually, organ failure. MCP stands alone as the only proven natural inhibitor of this harmful rogue molecule.

The Key Role of Galectin-3 in Inflammation
Galectin-3 is found throughout the body and is perfectly normal in small amounts. It plays a role in cellular communication, growth and development, and in the modulation of immune responses. Perhaps most significantly, it is directly involved in the regulation of inflammation.

Galectin-3 starts to cause problems when levels become too high. In excess, it causes the development of abnormal cellular behavior, such as uncontrolled cell growth and metastasis of tumors. In addition, it plays a role in the progression of inflammation from acute to chronic, and in the progression from chronic inflammation to tissue fibrosis. Scientists now believe that Galectin-3 is directly involved in the development of many inflammatory and fibrosis-related diseases.

Modified Citrus Pectin as a Proven Galectin-3 Inhibitor and More
The good news is that nature has provided us with a natural Galectin-3 blocker in the form of Modified Citrus Pectin. Pectin is primarily found in citrus and other fruit peels. It is a type of soluble fiber that has the ability to bind with and remove toxins such as heavy metals, radioactive isotopes and environmental chemicals from the digestive tract. However, the size and structure of the regular pectin molecule is simply too large to be absorbed into the blood stream and provide benefits to other areas of the body.

This is where Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) with its smaller pectin molecules plays a critical role in promoting health throughout the body, dramatically surpassing the benefits of regular pectin. MCP is produced using an advanced proprietary modification process, reducing the molecular weight of the pectin to fall between 5-13 kiloDaltons (normal pectin is between 50-300 KD). This modification allows MCP to easily and quickly absorb into the circulation, and also ensures greater bioactivity and effectiveness against numerous chronic conditions. Because of its carefully-controlled molecular weight and structure, MCP is able to attract, bind and block Galectin-3 molecules, chelate heavy metals without affecting essential minerals, and provide additional immune-enhancing properties throughout the body. With regular, unmodified pectin, these benefits are greatly reduced, and limited to the digestive tract.

These remarkable health-promoting properties have earned MCP a reputation worldwide as a versatile natural supplement for promoting numerous areas of health. Starting with the first published study in 1992, MCP has been extensively researched and substantiated as a safe and natural anti-cancer and anti-metastatic therapy, heavy metal chelator, immune enhancer, and powerful Galectin-3 inhibitor.

MCP and Arthritis
High levels of Galectin-3 molecules have been found in the lining of joints affected by rheumatoid arthritis. The Galectin-3 molecules stimulate the production of inflammatory compounds, which promote the joint destruction characteristic of this debilitating condition. When taken as a supplement, MCP’s specific structure can attract and wrap around the Galectin-3 molecules to inactivate them, thus breaking the cycle of inflammation, pain and joint damage.

As mentioned, MCP can also help alleviate another of the possible causes of arthritis, through its ability tochelate(tightly bind and remove) heavy metals and toxins from the body. We are regularly exposed to aluminum, lead, mercury, and other metals from numerous sources. Even small amounts can build up in various body tissues, with a particular affinity for joint tissue, and cause chronic inflammation. By removing these health-robbing toxins from the system (without removing essential minerals), MCP can reduce yet another cause of inflammation, and improve overall health and well being.

These applications add further substantiation toModified Citrus Pectin’s ability to effectively promote long term health. MCP is surpassing its reputation among doctors, health professionals and those interested in natural solutions, as an important daily supplement to protect against numerous degenerative or life-threatening illnesses.
