Thorne’s Pectinate contains citrus pectin that has been pH-modified, which breaks the citrus pectin molecule into much smaller pieces that are better absorbed into the bloodstream. Modified citrus pectin acts by surrounding and trapping metal ions, which allows the metal ions to be gently eliminated from the body. Alginate, from seaweed, is comprised of chains of polysaccharides that also act by surrounding and trapping metal ions. Finally, R-lipoic acid is a sulfur-containing antioxidant that binds to metal ions. R-lipoic acid also increases the level of the body’s premier intracellular antioxidant glutathione, in addition to having its own antioxidant activity in the body.
