Personal Testimonial
I have started taking this amazing new product to test its health benefits. First of all, let me say that it is the best tasting nutrition drink I have ever had. It is sweet to the taste and smells yummy too!
After just a few days of use, I have noticed improved circulation in my hands and feet. The most noticeable difference for me is I feel like something has cleared away all the cobwebs in my brain. In other words, I have experienced a significant increase in mental clarity and focus. This was a pleasant surprise and wasn't a result that I was not looking for.
I have also experienced an increase in my level of energy. Not an energy rush or the jitters but a sustained energy that helps me to do more push ups during my morning exercise regimen. I have also noticed that I am less tired in the evenings.
My 89 year old mother enjoys taking the "cactus juice" as she calls it, on a regular daily basis. It seems to help balance her blood pressure.
She also likes to rub cactus juice on the back of her hands. It nourishes the skin and leaves them feeling soft and smooth. A little prickly pear juice goes a long ways.

Prickly Pear Cactus Plant Supplements
The biggest difference between nopalea juice and prickly pear supplements is the capsules with powdered nopal plant extract do not contain antioxidant betalains. The betalains are the primary ingredient in nopalea cactus juice that helps reduce pain and inflammation in your body.
Prickly pear cactus plant supplements can also be beneficial to your health even though they don't contain betalains. They help manage your blood glucose levels, your cholesterol and improve bowel function. Nopalea cactus supplements can also help improve immune system function in your body.
