Natural Factors Apple Pectin Concentrate
Does an apple a day really keep the doctor away? It would seem so. Apples are full of healthful phytochemicals and two types of fibre. In fact, one medium apple provides more than 10 percent of the recommended daily fibre requirement. Eating apples is consistently associated with reduced risk for heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, asthma and cancer. The soluble fibre, pectin, is singled out as one of the most beneficial fibres with unique health-promoting qualities.
Pectins are complex polysaccharides (fibres) present in the cell walls of plants and in the spaces between cell walls. Apples are an excellent source of pectin as they can contain from 10 to 20 percent pectin in dried apple pomace. The peel itself contains 15 percent pectin.
Natural Factors ApplePectinRich is derived from the whole apple, including the flesh, core and especially the peel, which concentrates pectin and other phytonutrients. Research shows that apple peels can contain from two to six times more phenolic compounds and two to three times more flavonoids when compared to the flesh.
