Researched ingredients.

The citrus pectin molecule is too large to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Like cellulose, citrus pectin travels through the digestive tract, acting as a prebiotic fiber source. Thorne’s Pectinate® contains pH-modified pectin, which has been pH modified to break the citrus pectin molecule into much smaller pieces that can be absorbed into the bloodstream.This modified citrus pectin, because of its molecular makeup and electrical charge, can surround and trap metallic ions, allowing them to subsequently be gently eliminated from the body. Alginate, from seaweed, is comprised of chains of polysaccharides that can surround and trap metal ions. R-lipoic acid is a sulfur-containing antioxidant that can bind to metal ions and increases levels of the essential intracellular antioxidant glutathione.R-lipoic acid also serves as an antioxidant in the body.
