Isn't it just aloe vera?

I've never heard of the product but it looks interesting. It is made from the Nopal cactus not aloe vera. Nopal is used in mexican cuisine.

I have taken fresh nopal cactus medicinally as directed by my herbalist but it was to get me ready for another protocol. I didn't take it long enough or in a high dose so I don't think my experience is any indication of what might occur with the juice. I didn't notice any difference when I took it.

We took it and it helped. But it's expensive. It's a MLM thing too. We signed up and after my first case, it cost $50 a bottle which I had to order every month. I have 6 in my cupboard so maybe we'll try again and see if we can get my daughter's stomach to calm down. I'll give an update in a month or so.

Hey there,

We use the Nopales/Nopalitos go to the Mexican foods section in your local Walmart around three dollars.

I didn't know there were meds made from it.
We were told about it's use for diabetics to get sugars under control,

and for easing inflammation. I rinse them,and then put the Nopalitos right in w/ green beans and heat.

The ones we get do have some peppers,onions etc.,but rinsing helps so you don't get the spicey heat. Maybe it would help...? Certainly much less than that $50 a bottle product.

However you use it I sure hope it helps for your daughter!

Bumping this up for any more recent info...

And Silverowolfi, that sounds like a nice alternative to the big bucks! Have you noticed any change/help this far?
