May Promote Urinary Tract Bowel Function and Prostate Health
Incontinence happens in both men and women but for different reasons. In men, the prostate can enlarge (benign hypertrophy) resulting in irregular urination. In women, a decrease in muscle tone causes the muscles that control the bladder to become weak. Both of these conditions result in urine being 'left behind,' so to speak, which can lead to bladder infections. 

Although urine is itself a sterile fluid, there's nothing stopping bacteria from using it as a breeding ground. Our Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules - Nopal Cactus (Prickly Pear) has natural antimicrobial and antibacterial properties(11*) that may help to keep your bladder infection-free, and much more comfortable.

Weight Management
Do You Shy Away From Handsome People Who Flaunt Their Fat-Free Muscular Bodies?
Do You Find It Embarrassing To Shed Your Clothes At The Swimming Pool?
Frustrated With What You See In The Mirror?

Studies show that being overweight plays a major role in health risks such as heart disease, respiratory problems, and hormonal imbalances(12*).

Over 66% of Americans are overweight by at least 20 pounds. Obesity is at an all-time high as America becomes the fattest nation on the face of the earth(13*).

Most of us could stand to lose a few pounds or, at the very least, start down the road to a healthier lifestyle. We have become a nation dependent on fast food and quick-fix, prepackaged foods to accommodate our busy lifestyles.

Nopal cactus (Prickly Pear) may help to ramp-up your metabolism, turning you into a fat-burning machine. Combined with exercise and a proper diet plan you may be able to shed off those unwanted pounds.

The soluble fibers found in the Nopal cactus (Prickly Pear) are hemicellulose, pectins polysaccharides, mucilages, and gums and are used to delay the intestine's glucose absorption. The Nopal cactus (Prickly Pear) fibers, lignin, and pectin also decrease one's appetite or satiety which is a significant factor in controlling obesity (weight management).

If a patient is allergic or sensitive to psyllium (which is a well-known fiber supplement taken orally for the cleansing of the colon), Nopal cactus (Prickly Pear) is a fantastic and gentler alternative.
