Excellent!This product is great for uric acid. I find my joints feel better within an hour after taking 2 or 3 capsules. Also, It was suggest by my holistic physician when my blood test showed metals in my body. This product helps to cleanse the body to remove unwanted metals.
NOW Foods, Apple Pectin, 700 mg, 120 Veg Capsules is a great supplement especially for someone like me that don't have time to eat apple. Apple Pectin is a great fiber which can only get by eating the skin of Apple so with this supplement, I don't need to eat whole apple and I can control my sugar intake since Apple has huge amount of naturally occurring sugar. Pectin is a fiber which is beneficial to gut health, weight loss, diarrhea, blood sugar, etc. The product itself is excellent in terms of price. The capsule don't have taste, is of normal size and easy to take. FYI: I am not advising everyone to take apple pectin supplement over natural apple fruit. Of course, a whole natural apple fruit is much more beneficial. It just that the price of apple in my country is too expensive and I just can't afford it to include it in my daily diet so I opt for a supplement.
I'm so glad I found apple pectin in caps because I never seem to find success in mixing a loose powder in water. Very nice amount in the bottle and it benefits in gut cleansing. Only downsides is that it comes in a plastic bottle and there is some amount of filler with the composition, but the price and convenience of this product is worth it.
As someone who is always looking for ways to improve my overall health, I decided to try taking apple pectin as a supplement. To my delight, I noticed significant improvements in my bowel function and blood purification. Not only that, but I've also noticed that my skin is clearer and brighter, and I have better iron absorption. Overall, I'm very happy with the positive effects that apple pectin has had on my health and would definitely recommend it to others.
I bought it for my father because it's getting difficult to have regular bowel movements in old age. I read comments to find that there were similar situations so I bought this product for my father and he takes it along with an Acidophilus pill per day. He says it is effective more or less but not that apparent so he'll try longer as a supplement for his intestines' health.
My 10yo son has been chronically constipated, suffering bouts of encopresis for years. His doctor has always prescribed daily stool softeners containing osmotic salts, polyethylene glycol, sucralose and flavours. I've never been a fan of these satchets and results were only minimal. Since switching him to 1 apple pectin capsule and a full cup of water (we also give a couple of prunes) alongside his breakfast, he has been going daily. This is something! With the pharmacy product it was once every 3 days. Without, it could be a week with a lot of discomfort. With a background in nutrition I know this being a prebiotic fibre is contributing to long-term gut health and production of healthy short-chain fatty acids. Far reaching benefits and a much more favourable approach than focusing on just moving the stool along. I'll be buying this in an ongoing basis. It's a great product.
I love that these are in capsule form as apple pectin is very hard to absorb and drink. Apple pectin is great for binding with heavy metals and pulling them out of your body. Great to use on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. I don't use every day but will keep on hand for fiber and digestion.
Awesomely cheap, and superb in quality. These guys threw so much inside this. The ingredients in these is assured by their brand name. They have been making these for a long time. It wins over most apple pectin by sheer quantities. Size of the capsule is ok and these are cost efficient, which is a big plus. No foul taste or smell. Saw difference in bowel movement/digestion.
