Apple Pectin Powder– 1 oz. Pectin is a fiber found in fruits, a thickening agent for cooking, and as a supplement. It is an excellent powder to add to any bowel formula for diarrhea or as a stand alone product for diarrhea, nausea, and to reduce sickness form radiation treatments. It is beneficial as part of a supplement program to reduce high blood sugar, high cholesterol (LDL) or triglycerides, and high blood pressure. Apple Pectin has been found to be effective in the prevention of re-occurrence of prostate cancer when taken as a supplement after surgery or radiation. Taking Apple Pectin as a supplement can also help to reduce bone and joint pain from arthritis, prevent colon cancer, stop heartburn, and reduce gastrointestinal problems like GERD or Acid Reflux. Apple Pectin is also used by some to prevent heavy metal poisoning. Color of the product will either be light beige to light brownish red, varying by harvest and type of apple it is derived from. It mixes well with bentonite clay, kolin clay, fuller’s earch, psyllium husk fiber, other fibers, herbs, chlorella, and spirulina.
The FDA ruled in 2003 that medical OTC products could no longer sell pectin as an anti-diarrhea remedy. Today, the public still continues to enjoy the benefits of Apple Pectin for many common remedies regardless of drugstore products being discontinued. Kaopectate developed an effective product for diarrhea which combined Apple Pectin with kaolin clay. After 2004, Kaopectate had to withdraw their remedy from the OTC market due to the FDA ruling. Today, Apple Pectin is sold as a thickening agent for cooking.
For Diarrhea- take UP TO but not more than– 15 grams or approximately 1/2 ounce in a day. For an occasional bout of diarrhea, taking all 15 grams in one dose can be beneficial, yielding quick results for most. For more chronic problems, dividing the dose in half, taking 1/2 in the AM and 1/2 in the PM is recommended for more long lasting results.
Arthritis, Bone & Joint Discomfort, Aches & Pains- blend 1 cup of either pomegranate, cherry, or grape juice with 1/4 to 1 teaspoon of Apple Pectin for 1-2 minutes and drink. It can also be added to a smoothie along with coconut water for electrolytes, and one of the fruits mentioned. Combining Apple Pectin with Gelatin, Collagen, and Protein is another way to reduce the discomfort of aches and pains for aging or arthritis.
