Fruit Pectin And Detoxing
Fruit pectin has been proven very effective for removing contaminants from the body such as medication residue and heavy metals. When these unwanted contaminants deposit in the body's cells, they can contribute to a variety of serious diseases. Detoxifying the body from these substances optimizes health and lets the body repair itself.
Pectin is a substance found naturally in lots of fruits and vegetables. Pectin has been effective in removing heavy metals and other contaminants from the blood stream, and these contaminants are evacuated from the body through normal urination. Pectin is found in the rinds of many fruits and vegetables such as bannanas, cabbage, beets, carrots, apples and others.
For a natural, gentle detox eat several servigs of high-pectin fruit daily. One of the best sources for pectin are green apples, organic apples juice and unsweetened applesauce.
If you are looking for a deeper and more controlled detox, you can find pectin at the grocery store in the canned-goods section. Pectin made specifically for chelating heavy metals and drugs can be found at health food stores in powedered form.
Pectin can cause some problems for sensitive people. Some people may experience flare-up of symptoms during detoxification period, such as; dizziness, nausea, joint/muscle pain, fatigue and weakness. Reudcing the dose is usually enough to reduce the symptoms making the detox period more comfortable.
