The nopal cactus is harvested from the Sonoran Desert and then sent immediately to the processing facilities, where the Nopal cactus fruit is juiced to a puree and the fresh ingredients are bottled into what is known as Nopalea.
The word Nopalea is derived from “Nopal”, which is a type of cactus found in the Sonoran Desert, especially known for its antioxidant-rich healing properties.
The Main Ingredient in Nopalea is The Nopal Cactus Fruit
What makes the fruit so powerful is that it contains one of the highest concentrations of Betalains(powerful antioxidants) of any fruit in existence.
Betalains are natural antioxidants and found in only a few plants in the world. And of all the plants that contain Betalains, the Nopal cactus has the highest concentration. Betalains have scientifically been shown to:
• Reduce bad cholesterol – Betalains reduce oxidized LDL cholesterol
• Protect cells from toxins – Betalains protect many types of cells from toxins that are known to cause tumors.
• Reduce the risk of blood clots – Betalains protect the thin lining of your blood vessels, which helps reduce the inflammation that leads to blood clots.
• Liver Protection – Betalains provide protection from toxins that affect your liver.
What Makes Nopalea Different From Other Super-Food Wellness Products?
If you look in the marketplace today, you will find a dizzying amount
of products to choose from that contain antioxidants to help slow the
aging process and fight free radical damage.
This list includes: Acai, Noni, Mangosteen, Mona Vie, etc., but what
separates this product from others is the high concentration of Betalains.
To put it simply, inflammation is your immune system’s answer to damage within the body. Things like smoking, a poor diet, being overweight, stress, and even lack of exercise contribute to inflammation within the body.
We live in a very toxic environment from the water we drink, the air that we breathe, and even in the food that we eat. These harmful toxins are even produced by our own bodies.
What happens when there is something wrong within your body is that there is an immediate reaction, as your white blood cells go to the scene of the damage and start destroying damaged cells.
Chemical signals are produced from calling for more help, and a part of this response is that free radicals are created, which helps attack the damaged area. Ultimately the body fixes the damage by repairing the tissues, and balance is restored.
What Happens If Your Immune System Can’t Fix The Damage?
Well, inflammation will continue as the free radicals, instead of stopping when a body is healthy, will continue attacking body tissues, but will now start attacking healthy cells.
This leads to continued inflammation within the body, which causes more damage within the body, and ultimately a chronic, never ending cycle of inflammation, causing serious trouble.
You fight harmful carcinogens, hormone disruptors, respiratory toxins, developmental toxins, and neurotoxins that are known to cause a quarter of all the world’s diseases.
By drinking Nopalea you help protect the trillions of cells within your body against inflammation.
