Natural Factors ApplePectinRich, 500mg, 90 capsules
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.
