NOPAL CACTUS 500 mg
Freeze-Dried Nopal cactus, Vegetable capsule
Control: * Diet * Sugar-spiking * Colon-Cleansing ... Naturally!!
Benefits: Seagate freeze-dried Nopal Cactus reabsorbs approx. 50X its dried weight when released into the stomach providing an immediate feeling of fullness and reducing hunger. Unlike other diet products that may artificially stimulate the metabolism, giving a caffeine-like buzz, headache, or that falsely claim to burn fat, Nopal simply and naturally acts like a sponge - absorbing and expanding upon contact with the water and sugars in the stomach. The absorptive properties are temporary, allowing the slow release of the water and sugars, thereby helping to reduce sugar spiking immediately after a high-sugar meal or drink. The high insoluble fiber content (cellulose and lignin) absorbs wastes in the intestines and bowels, pushing them along into and through the colon, making this product an excellent cleanser.
Cactus Structure and function: The Nopal Cactus (Opuntia strepacantha) is a desert plant that survives intense heat and drought because of its ability to absorb and retain moisture in the mucilaginous fiber contained in its large flat spiny leaves. This insoluble fiber acts as a natural sponge holding the water, vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids in jelly-like masses contained within each leaf. Should the leaf become pierced or broken, this jelly-like mass which stores the cactus water and nutrients (which is called baba in Mexico) protects the cactus from sudden water loss, by slowly flowing from the leaf, similar to sap from a maple tree.. Upon contact with the air, the baba is able to seal the flow of moisture from the leaf.
Processing: Seagate gathers the Nopal Cactus leaves from selected cactus farms located in remote interior valleys of northern Baja California, not far from where Seagate operates their organic farm. This cactus is free of any chemicals, pesticides or contamination. Seagate receives the cactus leaves, complete with spines, on the day that the leaves are harvested. Generally, the new-growth leaves are harvest during the summer, when local temperatures range from 110-120 F, the ideal conditions for this hardy plant.
The leaves are cleaned of any residual dirt and the spines are mechanically removed in a rotary wash tank. The leaves are then ground into smaller particles for drying, careful to retain all the baba, the storehouse of the cactus potency and nutrients. The cactus particles are then freeze-dried under deep vacuum. Seagate had been developing this process for 3 years before unlocking the mystery of how to dry the baba and carefully retain all of the cactus nutrients and absorptive properties. The water concentration in the cactus leaves is so high that approximately 100 kgs of cactus will dry to 1 kg of finished product. Three Nopal capsules are the equivalent of 1/3 lb of raw cactus.
Suggested Use: Take 3-6 capsules immediately before a meal. These capsules can also be opened and the contents poured into sweet drinks or smoothies, to counter the immediate high-sugar release; however do not mix in too much powder because the Nopal has a natural bitter taste that might affect the taste of the drink.

"This product has been a lifesaver for my husband's diverticulosis. At theraputic dosage and daily use, his intestines are smoothing out, and he is able to eat anything. Don't know where he'd be without it, since it has kept him away from needing antibiotics. "

"THE Nopal Cactus is the only product that I have found to cleanse my colon. All I need to do is take 7 capsules in the morning and it gets things moving in no time. Normally I would have a bowel movement on an average, once a week! This is the best product, no side effects,and being all natural is the only way to go.THANKS for such a splendid product! "
TURNED IRRITABLE HUSBAND INTO MR. NICE
By: Mrs. B., PA US on August 9, 2012
"I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT THIS PRODUCT! I bought this over a year ago for bowel maintenance reasons, but what it did for my marriage was totally unexpected and is priceless.
I am amazed what this product has done for my irritable/moody/crouchy husband! It turned him into Mr. Nice (if I run out of this, he goes back to being irritable). ALSO, my mother gave it to my father for the same reason, and low and behold, it made him Mr. Nice also! She won't go without it either. Praise God & Thank You! "

just order the large bottle
By: Kyle PArker from Kandiyohi, MN US on September 3, 2011
"I ordered the smaller bottle of Nopal Cactus to "try" it. This product is amazing. I go after the deep fried sweet and salty stuff without craving it and since using this product I don't even think about it. I also have a terrible time with constipation and am having much less trouble. I also have been using the Olive Leaf extract and trust the 2 are working together well. I do wish it would ship faster and we would be notified when it ships."
Good For Dieting Control

I love, love, love this product
By: Debra from Bethany , OK US on September 10, 2010
"I have always had trouble with my colon/bowels and had tried, through the years, alot of different colon cleanse products. They would bloat you and give you diarrhea, besides having to take 20 some pills. I tried the olive leaf first and loved it so thought I would try the nopal cactus. I take 3 pills in the morning and 3 in the evening before bed and I have a bowel movement everyday. Thank you so much for your great, fantastic products. I cannot rave enough about the purity of your products."

"I am pleased t find that Nopa Cactus does control my lows and highs from sugar, whether processed or natural.It does curb the appetite and help hold me out longer between meals. If I snack I find sometimes now it is out of habit. My snacking is good tho with almonds, fruit, or plain yogurt. I am going to buy more."
