Nopal Cactus has been used for thousands of years by Mexican natives, both as a food and for enhanced health and vitality. HealthForce Nutritionals Nopal Cactus is the authentic Opuntia streptacantha species (which is the only species that has shown such significant benefits). This cactus is dried at low temperatures to preserve enzymes and heat-sensitive elements, is highly nutritious, and contains a unique phytonutrient, vitamin, and mineral profile that contributes to its beneficial effects. It is also high in bulk-forming mucilaginous fiber that assists most foods, herbs, and supplements taken with it to be gently and naturally timed released into the blood stream. This includes the timed release of sugars into the blood stream to support healthy blood sugar and insulin functions. Will also time release other foods/herbs into the blood stream, including unhealthful foods. Timed releasing less than optimally healthful foods into the blood stream will allow the body to deal with the resultant toxicity with less difficulty.
Suggested Use: 3-6 VeganCaps upon arising and 3-6 VeganCaps per meal or snack. VeganCaps can be opened and mixed into sweet drinks/smoothies for maximum effects (Nopal powder is bitter; do not mix in so many caps that your drink/smoothie becomes unpalatable). Intensive Use: 6 VeganCaps upon arising and 6 with each meal or snack.
Suggested Adjuncts: Avoidance of eating, wearing, or breathing chemicals. A whole food, organic, Vegan diet with emphasis on high-water-content raw foods; a high fiber diet (only whole plant foods have fiber); cinnamon; Vitamineral Green and Vitamineral Earth (unique and extremely nutrient dense superfood complexes for comprehensive nutritional support and balance); Liver Rescue; exercise (try rebounding); fresh air (house plants clean the air).
Important Notice: To insulin users and diabetics, due to Nopal's natural effect of assisting the moderation of blood sugar and insulin levels, check with your doctor as insulin may need to be adjusted.

EcoFresh Nutrient Lock: The dark glass with unique metal lid and oxygen absorber protects 100% of nutrients (creates a vacuum). Glass is recycled/recyclable, does not outgas (see Note below), and is non-toxic to melt down. Plastic bottles and metal/foil pouches (worst and not recyclable) dramatically degrade nutrient levels. Plastic outgasses and is highly toxic to melt down.
