Nopalea ResearchNopal Juice's cactus fruit contains a very rare and powerful class of antioxidants called bioflavonoids. These bioflavonoids have been scientifically proven to help the body detoxify itself and reduce inflammation. In fact, over 250 scientific studies have been published so far! See what science says about these incredible nutrients. 

Nopal cactus promotes optimum cellular health

The environment surrounding most cells in the human body is comprised mostly of water. Inflammation in the cells causes the water to heat up. Heat causes the wall of the cell to wither, melt and break down very rapidly. Nopal cactus drives down inflammation and turns the fluid environment of the cell into cold, refreshing water that supports a firm, robust cell membrane. A cool environment for the cell slows down the aging process.

During the inflammatory process a chemical is released known as myeloperoxidase (MPE). This is the most powerful oxidant produced by the human neutrophil during acute inflammation, especially from infection or cancer.1 Soon, bioflavonoids found in nopal cactus douse the wildfire of inflammation caused by MPE and protect healthy cells.2 Meanwhile, bioflavonoids drain toxic waste water surrounding the cells and create a cooling environment conducive to cell health.3

Nopal Cactus helps reduce inflammation

One of the most common causes of of death in Australia is related to atherosclerosis - hardening of the arteries. Healthy arteries become diseased from inflammation. Often, LDL (bad cholesterol) oxidises because of stress or toxins or a diet deficient of antioxidants. The inflamed LDL ricochets off the delicate lining of the blood vessel leaving microscopic injuries like millions of tiny paper cuts in the blood vessels. The blood vessels themselves inflame in response to this injury and become sticky. Sticky arteries and sticky cholesterol is a recipe for disaster. Soon, adhesion molecules called ICAM-1 cause the sticky compound to harden.

Bioflavonoids from nopal cactus help reduce inflammation through antioxidant protection of the blood vessel lining and by reducing inflammation in the LDL cholesterol.1 What is more, bioflavonoids prevent ICAM-1 from hardening the cholesterol compound.2 By doing this, bioflavonoids from nopal cactus provide protection for the delicate lining of the arteries and help reduce the risk of heart attacks, stroke and other vascular diseases.

Nopal cactus helps detoxify poisons

A number of experiments have been designed to test the anti-toxin ability of bioflavonoids. One of the most popular series of studies on human toxicity involves one of the most common poisons: alcohol. A study completed in 2004 demonstrated that nopal not only protected against signs of alcohol toxicity, it also reduces inflammation as measured by CRP.1

Other tests on red blood cells of humans and animals have challenged toxins associated with fatal poisons like carbon tetrachloride, toxins created by viruses like Epstein-Barr and even toxins created by cancers such as Chronic Myeloid Leukemia.2,3,4

Nopal cactus helps protect against premature aging

A cell has a "pre-programmed" lifespan. If the cell ages at the appropriate rate we call that healthy aging. If the cell ages too quickly we call that premature aging. Many aspects of the environment of the cell contribute to how quickly - or how slowly - the cell ages. Among the influences already mentioned are fluid balance, inflammation and toxicity. When fluid is balanced and inflammation and toxicity are low, the cell has the opportunity to age in healthy way.

Much of the health of the cell depends on the health of the membrane called the cell wall. It requires building blocks made of fats and proteins and pressure pumps fuelled by minerals. Bioflavonoids act like anchors to give structure to the proteins and fats that comprise the cell walls. This keeps the cell wall healthy and prevents it from breaking down prematurely. It also makes the cell wall robust and prevents it from "popping" too easily.1 Furthermore, bioflavonoids create the perfect mineral balance inside the cell (mostly potassium and magnesium) and outside the cell (mostly sodium and calcium). The tension created by these minerals produces electricity that fuels the pump and keeps the pressure inside the cell higher than the pressure outside the cell.2 The combination of these effects results in slowing the aging process and allowing the cell to live out its full lifespan in a balanced, healthy way.

Agave nectar has an array of benefits

Agave contains saponins and fructans. Saponins have anti-inflammatory properties, including antimicrobial capabilities. In fact, the Aztecs used agave syrup to treat wounds because of its antibacterial properties. Inulin is a type of fructan or fibre that has many health benefits. Studies suggest that inulin can be effective in weight loss because of its low impact on blood sugar and its ability to increase satiety and decrease appetite. Inulin is also associated with lowering cholesterol, reducing the risk of certain cancers and increasing the absorption of nutrients, such as isoflavones, calcium and magnesium. 

How Nopal Juice Works

Nopal Juice is truly a breakthrough product that is backed by scientific research, proven to assist your body to reduce inflammation. All of us are exposed to harmful toxins, trauma and deficiencies. This can all lead to harmful inflammation that causes pain and discomfort. When cells within our bodies are attacked by inflammation they can become damaged and die. These damaged or dead cells can cause illness and infection if the body is not able to eliminate them effectively. 

The incredible bioflavonoids in Nopal Juice have been shown to help the body fight against inflammation and cell toxicity but assisting to rid the body of damaged cells.
