Modified Citrus Pectin Information
Question: Is Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) helpful for prostate or breast cancer?
Answer: Modified citrus pectin (MCP) is a soluble fiber that has been processed in such a way that it can be absorbed -- and as a supplement, has been promoted for "detoxification," "cellular health," and preventing or slowing cancer growth, such as in prostate and breast cancer tumors. It is commonly sold as Pectasol® and PectaSol-C® (see our Where to Buy page for our list of retailers that sell modified citrus pectin that we've found to be reputable). While some preliminary evidence suggests a possible benefit, this evidence is far from definitive -- and there can be mild side effects. See the full answer to get the details about MCP >>
