Ever since I injured my knee, back in July 2011, I’ve been eating OTC anti-inflammatories like they are candy. As you know, inflammation is one of the leading causes of pain, and I have chronic knee pain that just doesn’t seem to improve.
Because I’d rather not burn a hole in my stomach, I have started researching natural anti-inflammatory products. One that looks promising is Nopalea.
“Nopalea (No-pah lay’uh) is a tasty wellness drink sourced from the fruit of the Nopal cactus (Opuntia Indica). The healing properties of the Nopal cactus have been relied on for centuries by native peoples, and they’re now available in Nopalea.”
It contains rare antioxidants, Betalains, that are scientifically proven to help the body reduce inflammation. When taken daily, Nopalea is believed to:
Cleanse the body of daily toxins
Promote optimal health
With over 3 million bottles sold, I’m thinking they are onto something.
Nopalea offers a free trial (pay only $9.95 for shipping) by calling 1-800-203-7063. I just have to check with my doctor to make sure it won’t interfere with any of my medications. There are no known contraindications with Nopalea and medications. However, Nopalea is a dietary supplement. If you are taking any medications or have a known medical condition, it’s best to consult with your healthcare provider before drinking Nopalea.
What are your thoughts on natural supplements?
