Scientists from Russia managed to create liquid medical pectin for the first time in the world #Биология and Medicine Yesterday at 16:21 284 0 Pectin, an incredibly useful substance found in fruits. It can be used for the prevention and treatment of many diseases, and such formidable as heart and oncological diseases. Pectin helps cleanse the body of harmful substances like salts of heavy metals, radionuclides, cholesterol and so on. Researchers from the State University "Dubna" together with colleagues from scientific organizations have developed the world's first industrial method for obtaining liquid medical pectin. According to them, the product developed using their technology is highly effective and can be used to prevent and treat many diseases. This was reported by the press service of the State University "Dubna". According to experts, the use of this natural thickener and a strong detoxifier significantly reduces the risk of heart and cancer, cleanses the body of harmful substances, such as salts of heavy metals, radionuclides, cholesterol and so on. Special highly purified pectins are used for the production of healthy and special (preventive and therapeutic) nutrition products. However, in its pure and stable form, it is very difficult to obtain it, since the additives of stabilizers and acids used to extract pectin from fruits reduce its beneficial properties, including the ability to "absorb" toxins. To solve this problem, scientists have developed a special technology for obtaining pectin, which is based on the rejection of the use of chemical reagents. And the product is obtained in liquid, not powder form. "By controlling the processes of pectin release at the cellular level with the help of innovative equipment made of chemically inactive materials, we obtained the highest quality product from different types of fruits. The process is completely based on resource-saving and waste-free technology. The rejection of chemical reagents made it possible to preserve the macromolecules of pectin, which, thanks to the liquid "format" of the product, form a three-dimensional network that further increases the detox effect, "said Raisa Gorshkova, a professor at dubna State University. At the heart of the pectin macromolecule are the carboxyl groups of galacturonic acid. Most of these groups are "free," which allows pectin to effectively bind and remove harmful substances from the body. On an industrial scale, pectin substances are obtained mainly from apple and citrus squeezes, sugar beet pulp, sunflower baskets, pumpkin.
