(*) See References and Disclaimer at the bottom of the page.

Our Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules (Prickly Pear) contain histidine. This amino acid is essential for infants and adults (it was once thought to be essential only for infants) and is needed for building protein(1*).

Histide has many roles in the body, including tissue repair and maintenance of the myeli. Myelin is an insulating cover that is vital to the operation of the body's entire nervous system(2*).

Histidine is also a precursor to histamine, a compound that the immune system cells release when an allergic reaction happens. It plays a role in producing gastric juices as well as protecting the body against radiation(3*).

Histide is abundantly found in hemoglobin, and a lack of histidine may lead to nerve damage (especially auditory nerve damage).(4*)  Histidine aids those who suffer from allergies, anemia, rheumatoid arthritisand ulcers(5*), (6*).
