I recently presented the critical role of Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) and Polybotanicals in integrative cancer breakthroughs. My lecture was offered at The Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND) Conference, November 18th-20th, in Ontario, Canada. OAND is a professional association representing more than 60 percent of Ontarios Naturopathic Doctors. The conference brings together hundreds of Naturopathic physicians, medical professionals and researchers to share the latest advancements in the treatment and prevention of disease. The most important message I shared during the presentation was the value of true integration, mind-body medicine, and the exciting new research on Modified Citrus Pectin and one of its targets, Galectin-3.

Role of Galectin-3 Molecules

I discussed new evidence on the positive effects of Modified Citrus Pectin (derived from the pith of citrus fruit peels) in blocking unhealthy levels of Galectin-3 molecules in the body. Galectin-3 is produced naturally by our bodies, but new research proves that elevated levels in the body can lead to serious health conditions like heart disease, fibrosis and metastatic cancer. MCP is the only natural Galectin-3 blocker available today. By binding to and blocking excess Galectin-3 molecules, Modified Citrus Pectin prevents Galectin-3 from wreaking havoc on our bodies. A new blood test that measures circulating levels of Galectin-3 is approved by the FDA and most health insurance. This test can also help to determine risks of cancer metastasis.
