Any damage on the gut may lead to a leaky gut syndrome which ends up impacting the immune function negatively. Pectin produces a gel like substance that can coat and protect the gut from damage. The gut microbiome also uses pectin to produce other healthy substances that promote even the immune function.

Pectin is very effective in the promotion of detoxification especially of heavy metal toxicity in tissues and organs.


Pectin produces a protective coating on the mucous membrane and can help in protecting the colon from free radical damage that may lead to carcinogenesis. It also absorbs toxic carcinogenic heavy metals and helps in their elimination.
