Pectin is a component of plant walls and is extracted from the inner peels of citrus fruits including lemons, oranges, grapefruits and lime. Citrus pectin and apple pectin are well-known sources of dietary fiber that may promote overall health, as well as digestive health. Adding fiber to the diet is also believed to support weight management. Taking a pectin supplement, such as grapefruit pectin, in capsule form is a convenient and easy way to increase your daily fiber intake. Pectin is also available in powder form, which can be mixed into juices, smoothies and other beverages for added fiber content.**
