New Breakthrough Study: Modified Citrus Pectin Boosts Chemo’s Power against Ovarian Cancer Ovarian cancer is one of the deadliest cancers because it’s often detected at a late stage, with higher risk of resistance to frontline chemotherapy drugs such as paclitaxel (commonly sold as Taxol). However, a new preclinical study from the University of Tehran and the Neuroscience Research Center, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran, published in the Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention showed that Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) increased the effectiveness of paclitaxel against ovarian cancer cells.
The research on Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) continues to grow, highlighting its powerful benefits against inflammation and the protein galectin-3 -- a culprit in heart disease, cancer, inflammation and fibrosis. In this powerful new study, published in Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology: Journal of the American Heart Association, MCP blocked galectin-3 and reduced the inflammation, blood pressure, fibrosis and aortic wall thickness associated with vascular hardening and cardiovascular disease. Furthermore, MCP out-performed the pharmaceutical drug sprironolactone, safely without toxicity. Click here to read more about the study.

American Chemical Society Highlights Modified Citrus Pectin as Solution to Chronic Disease Marker Galectin-3
Cancer, heart disease, chronic inflammation—these disease conditions plague humanity, causing early death and untold suffering. Slowly, scientists are uncovering their numerous causes including genetic anomalies, environmental toxins, obesity and other factors. However, a rapidly expanding body of research points to a single biological culprit that profoundly affects these and other conditions—the molecule Galectin-3.
"We need to outsmart the cancer before it outsmarts us. To do this, we have to find ways to attack cancer from many angles, so it doesn't have the opportunity to develop protective mutations," says integrative medicine pioneer, Isaac Eliaz, M.D.
Doxorubicin (Dox) is an effective anti-cancer drug, but it's also a very toxic one, causing severe heart and immune damage. The doses needed to impact tumors are not well tolerated by patients; however, researchers may have found an answer through combination therapy. A study published in the journal Cell Biology International has shown that combining Dox with the natural supplement Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) increases the anti-cancer activity of Dox. This finding bodes well for prostate cancer patients, especially those too weak for normal chemotherapy regimens. Combination therapy may allow for lower doses of Dox with enhanced clinical impact and reduced toxicity.
Integrative physician Isaac Eliaz, M.D., L.Ac., is a leading researcher and expert on safe detoxification and protection from radioactive isotopes and heavy metals. Here, Dr. Eliaz outlines a strategic plan for combating potential radiation exposure, using natural detoxifiers, trace minerals, antioxidants, and immune boosters. "This approach will help to remove potential radiation from the body, protect cells, tissues and DNA, and strengthen vitality and immunity. The beauty of this strategy is that while these solutions help remove radiation, they also enhance overall health with numerous additional benefits," says Dr. Eliaz.
In a groundbreaking study, Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP), a highly researched natural compound enhanced the anti-cancer effects of two poly-botanical formulas. When co-administered with formulas that attack breast and prostate cancer, MCP significantly increased their anti-cancer action, further reducing metastasis in highly invasive breast and prostate cancer cells. The study was led by researchers at the Cancer Research Laboratory at Indiana University Health and Indiana University School of Medicine, and published in the peer review journal Integrative Cancer Therapies.
Your skin is vulnerable. As the largest organ system, it performs numerous essential tasks and is the frontline of defense against bacteria, viruses, allergens, toxins, and more. You do your best to protect your skin, but it’s out in the open, exposed to sun, wind and environmental pollutants. Skin structure is complex, and part of an intricate network involving other organs. To keep it healthy, you need to support this system. Healthy skin is a vital component to wellness and vice versa. Here are some recommended ways to love your skin and promote overall health.
The older we get, the more vigilant about health we need to be, but aging gracefully is possible, and there are numerous ways to protect our longevity naturally. One of the best scientifically researched natural ingredients, and one that I have researched extensively and used in my clinical practice for over 15 years with excellent results, is modified citrus pectin (MCP). MCP is an all-natural dietary supplement derived from the pith of citrus fruit. It is an ideal supplement for protecting health and longevity simply because it targets age-related conditions -- primarily cancer, but others as well.
