Pectin is a substance found in the walls or skin of any fruits or plants. It plays a crucial role in keeping the walls or skin of the fruit intact especially when it ripens. I tried this many years ago when it was first suggested for arthritis. I didn’t find it particularly helpful, but many people did swear for it.
There haven’t been any studies to confirm that it helps relieve joint pain or Fibromyalgia pain. It is still considered an old wive’s tale. However it does help for your bowels. It’s used to bind stools and help in expelling toxins out of the colons.
Pectin is found in grape juice and concentrated pectin in the form of liquid or powder is also widely available in supermarkets.
