The benefits of Modified Citrus Pectin Cancer (henceforth, MCP) has been being studied by many scientists around the world for more than twenty years. There are many life-threatening conditions like heart diseases and cancer that can be cured by using this unique ingredient.
What is Modified Citrus Pectin Cancer?
Modified citrus pectin is actually a therapy to beat some kinds of cancer like melanoma skin cancer and prostate cancer and prevent them spreading. There are various kinds of fruits that contain pectin, one of them is citrus fruits, especially in their pips and pith parts. Pectin is also usually used when we want to let the jam set. In modified citrus pectin, the pectin is changed in order to make it easier to be processed by the body and gut.
Can It Prevent Metastatic Cancer?
Yes, it can prevent cancer, especially metastatic cancer like prostate cancer, colon and breast cancer, melanoma, and some others. It is found that MCP is pretty effective to inhibit both angiogenesis and metastatic processes.
What is meant by angiogenesis is the process of establishing the cancer cells’ blood supply in order to help them grow. Meanwhile, metastasis is the process in which the cancer cells enter the lymphatic system or bloodstream after separating from the tumor, in order to form a new tumor in the other organs/parts of the body.
Through the mechanism of galectin (a molecule is involved in the spread of cancer), MCP distracts the “communication” between the cancer cells. MCP prevents the penetration of gelatin and any other molecules into a healthy tissue so that a new tumor and the establishment of the tumor’s blood supply will not happen.
During the MCP interference, the cancer cells can only circulate in the blood stream before finally dying. By distracting the spread of cancer, the modified citrus pectin cancer enhances the immune system of our body and prevent our body from overwhelming which is caused by the uncontrollable cancer cell load.
