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 organic cactus is dried at low temperatures to preserve enzymes and heat-sensitive elements. Our Nopal Cactus is highly nutritious, and contains a unique phytonutrient, vitamin, and mineral profile that contributes to its beneficial effects. This profile includes support for the immune system and a moderated balance of blood sugar.* 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.
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.

100% TruGanic™: TruGanic™ is a purist, hard-core, quality standard significantly beyond organic. In addition to no pesticides being used anywhere in the growing process, TruGanic™ includes authentic standards for production, nontoxic cleaning agents and pest control, electromagnetic radiation, processing agents, additives, air quality, and actual verification of purity.
EcoFresh Nutrient Lock™. Our dark glass with unique metal lid and oxygen absorber protects 100% of nutrients (creates a vacuum). Glass is recycled/recyclable, does not outgass (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.
Note: All plastic containers (more so in soft plastic) release gases during the aging and degradation of a material. The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released from plastic negatively affect our health.
All ingredients are optimally dried for maximum life force.
