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 nopalea(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:
Reduce inflammation
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?

  1. I haven’t heard of this medication before. Thanks for sharing. I hope your knee feels better soon!

  2. Wow, I will have to check this out. I had knee surgery forever ago and it still bothers me. Especially when the weather changes.

  3. I wonder if it would help with carpal tunnel?

  4. It sounds like a good thing to try. I would like to know how it tastes? Has anyone tried it?

  5. I think sometimes natural remedies such as this supplement are better than traditional medicine with a lot less side effects.

  6. Ann Washburn says:

    There is a natural product that I got on Amazon, called Arnica, that has all natural products in it. I suffer EXCRUCIATING shoulder pains from old dislocations/surgery, and it seems to help a fair bit.

  7. A lot of more natural products are actually very effective.

  8. I haven’t heard of this supplement, but I think some supplements can be a great thing.

  9. My son needs something like this. He has been having problems with his knee.

  10. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and my husband actually saw this advertised and wants me to order some. I have tried natural and herbal remedies and some have worked ok and others not so much. After lots of surgeries due to the Ra, I am willing to try anything:)

  11. Cynthia DeLeon says:

    I have heard of Nopalea before from tv infomercials and Ive always wanted to try it! I will definitely google some more info on this. I think natural supplements are the best

  12. I always think natural options are best. However, if they don’t do the trick, I am always willing to use conventional methods if they bring relief.

  13. I totally try anything natural that may help with my condition.

  14. I take naproxen when my hands get too bad, and it seems to help. Is that what you had been using?

  15. Never heard of this either. I’ve noticed more and more first thing in the mornings my legs ache until I’ve been up moving around a bit. I wonder if this would help that?

  16. I wonder if there are any side effects? I could use something like this.

  17. I have heard of this and actually blogged about it. Very interested in actually trying it for my fibro.

  18. Sounds interesting!

  19. I have never heard of this before. I will have to check it out.

  20. anything is worth a try if it means you will not be in pain good luck to you and let us know how it goes
