Nopalea is an antioxidant supplements that claims to include all-natural ingredients boosting the immune system and weight loss naturally. There are several “official” websites for Nopalea as the product tends to be sold through independent affiliates from the TriVita corporation. TriVita also sells Nopalea on the company website.

List of Ingredients

Water, Nopal Cactus Fruit Pulp, Agave Nectar, Grape Seed Extract, Raspberry Extract, Strawberry Extract, Cranberry Extract, Apple Extract, Apricot Extract, Mango Extract, Orange Concentrate Juice, Papaya Concentrate, Tomato Concentrate Fruit, Kiwi Concentrate, Guava, Lemon Concentrate, Peach Concentrate Juice, Pomegranate Extract, Grape Tea Extract, Beet Juice, Bilberry Concentrate, Acerola Cherry Extract, Amylase, Hemicellulase, Proteases, Stevia Extract Leaf, Guar Gum, Maltodextrin, Cherry Powder, Xanthum Gum.

Product Features

The ingredients are not listed on the TriVita website, that we could find, but they were clearly listed on several affiliate websites. Nopalea is packed with fruit concentrates and extracts and while these will have an antioxidant effect, they could also have a diuretic and laxative effect on the body. One serving size of Nopalea is two tablespoons which claims to pack in a proprietary blend of 907.17 grams. If the label is listed based on the highest concentration being first, water would make up the majority of those 907 grams. There are no weight loss ingredients included in the Nopalea formula. Aside from fruit and a bit of thickening agent, the drink is nothing more than a fruit concentrate.

We are a bit concerned about the claims on the TriVita Nopalea website. The drink is supposed to help relieve pain and make breathing easier. If the product is taken on a daily basis the dieter could see reduced inflammation, detoxification of the body and improved cell health, but no matter how healthy fruit juice may be these are some pretty big claims.

Nopalea sells for $139.99 for four 32-ounce bottles. This price is much higher than any other natural product boating antioxidant support.

Advantages

  • Ingredient list found online.
  • Official website sells the product.

Disadvantages

  • Fruit juice is not a weight loss product.
  • The ingredient list contains no fat burners or appetite suppressants.
  • At only two tablespoons, the dieter could get more out of increasing fruit intake.
  • No support is given for the claims of improved health when taking the supplement.
  • Testimonials are not available on the website.

Conclusion

We would tell consumers to stay away from the Nopalea product and others like it. Nopalea is a fruit juice concentrate that may cause dehydration and diarrhea as is the case with natural fruit juices. The price is far too expensive for any fruit supplement with other superfoods like Acai berry being offered for a mere fraction of the $139.99 cost.

    Nopalea is a Fraud - Truth hurts

    There is NO scientific basis for ANY wellness claims related to the nopal cactus. The first such claims appeared in the last 14 years – no one had ever claimed any benefits before then. The Nopalea brand, in my opinion, is nothing more than a marketing fraud that makes unfounded promises of benefits from a mix of fruit juices that has NO medicinal or therapeutic value.
