Below we've broken down the main functions of our Apple Pectin and the benefits it can provide.
Apple pectin has been shown to help support digestion with one study resulting in a reduction in frequency of bowel movements and reduced intestinal infections.
The fiber in apple pectin is soluble fiber which is broken down into a gel-like substance in the colon during digestion. This fiber ferments in the gut to provide food for bacteria and help promote colon health.
Soluble fiber, like that found in apple pectin, has been shown to help balance the digestive system and glucose levels.
