Pectin Percentage and Sources

Posted by VR on 06/07/2007

Good Afternoon Ted, I have just a couple of questions for you. You said we need 3% pectin daily to help lower cholesterol. What is the 3% Based on and also where can you purchase natural pectin. At this point, I am taking zetia and it has lowered my cholesterol some but not to what it should be. What do you think?

3% pectin is based on food bulk you eat. Which can be taken drinks before you eat food. It blocks out the oils and sugar which goes to the blood stream from going to quickly giving time for the body to process them without forming cholesterol too quickly. Granulated powdered lecithin simply dissolves the fats, reducing the cholesterol. While iodine dissolves waxy substance of cholesterol from taking drop of sodium/potassium iodide. These are known to block or dissolve, which resolve the issue. However, drinking soy milk also reduce blood cholesterol more effective than some medication sold and the ones I just listed here works better than most medicine I am aware of. In general the one you mention does not deal directly, or simple enough as shown here.
