For people like me that have never heard of it:

PectaSol-C - PectaSol-C® Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) is designed to enhance immune function and maintain optimal health.* PectaSol® MCP has been clinically demonstrated to slow PSA doubling time in prostate cells.* It is known to promote normal cell growth by interfering with the binding properties of galectin proteins by preventing them from adhering to each other and the inner wall of blood vessels.*

Have you tried pectal sol? If so did you have any results?

I've read the "copy" but haven't seen anything posted in any forum by people who tried it.

This is a supplement and has no history of ever being successfully used medically for anything. The ingredients can be found in fruit. It is illegal for any claims to be made about cure or treatment for anything.

I highly doubt that this is anything but a good way to give a wallet a slimmer waste line...

This supplement was discussed as a treatment for prostate cancer when my father was alive. He died of prostate cancer 16 years ago.
