Purica Aztec Nopal Details

  • Balances blood sugar
  • Binds with bile salts to reduce unhealthy lipids
  • High anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory constituents
  • Gentle digestive aid

Purica Aztec Nopal (Opuntia Ficus Indica) or Prickly Pear Cactus is native to Mexico where it has been used as a food and medicine by the ancient indigenous civilizations of Toltecs, Olmecs, and Aztecs. As it is grown in the nourishing pristine soil of the Aztec high mountains, its most important bioactive healing properties are able to develop fully. Aztec Nopal is the most treasured species with the highest concentration of nutritional and healing properties.

Purica Aztec Nopal and Blood Fat Modulation

Purica Aztec Nopal is primarily known for its positive effect on blood sugar because of its ability to normalize levels and increase blood sugar sensitivity. Blood sugar control is attributable to its fiber content and specific hypoglycemic molecular agents. These specific phyto-nutrients have been shown to augment the body’s cellular response.

The Prickly Pear Cactus is also known to balance blood fats because of its carotenoid and glycoprotein properties. Polysaccharide fibers and sterols exhibit a positive effect on cholesterol and triglycerides by literally binding with bile salts, therefore reducing unhealthy lipids in the blood. Because of this, the conversion of blood sugar to fats is prevented.

It is completely safe to take in combination with medications and other natural health products and there are no reported contraindications.

  • Standardized formulation
  • Shelf life and nutritional value optimized through gentle dehydration process
  • A nutrient-rich whole food
  • Unique profile of high soluble and high insoluble fibers
  • 18 amino acids
  • Full complement of B vitamins, minerals and other bioactive phytonutrients
