Product Features

Some studies have shown that Nopal supplements can have a stabilizing effect on conditions such as diabetes. However diabetes is a very serious medical condition and you should not take any kind of supplement without first seeking the advice of your Family Physician or diabetes professional. Nopal is also thought to be able to lower the levels of your cholesterol. It is rich in amino acids, as well as in vitamins and minerals. Some manufacturers include Nopal in weight loss supplements as they claim that it can help to procure weight loss. There is however no concrete evidence to back up the claims of certain manufacturers that Nopal can help procure weight loss. Stand alone Nopal supplements and weight loss supplements which contain Nopal can be ordered directly from on line stores or in person from drug stores or from pharmacies. There do not however seem to be many offers of money back guarantees upon purchase of stand alone Nopal supplements sold on line.

    As far as the (weight loss, IT WORKS! I took Nopal for approximately 2 weeks and lost about 8 lbs. This was a little scary as I’m sure gradual weight loss is healthier. I ended up with a diagnosis of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), so be careful.
