Info: 250 g of Powder in Bottle

Aztec Nopal (aka Prickly Pear Cactus) has been used by the ancient indigenous civilizations of Mexico. It is grown high in the Aztec mountains where the soil is pristine and rich, and has been mindfully cared for, allowing ample time for the cactus to develop its bioactive healing properties. This superfood is known to help eliminate sugar cravings, balance blood fats, blood sugar and insulin delivery as well as ease digestion and elimination. With a high fibre content, it is a helpful agent in weight management.

Product Notes:

A complete and sustainable food rich with 18 amino acids, high soluble and insoluble fibers and a full complement of B vitamins, minerals and other bioactive phyto-nutrients, Aztec Nopal is primarily known for its ability to normalize blood sugar levels and increases insulin sensitivity. This blood sugar control is attributable to the high fiber content and specific hypoglycemic molecular agents in the cactus. These specific phyto-nutrients have been shown to augment the body’s cellular response to insulin. The Prickly Pear Cactus is also known to balance blood fats because of its carotenoid and glycoprotein properties. Polysaccharide fibers and sterols demonstrate a positive effect on cholesterol and triglycerides as they bind with bile salts reducing unhealthy lipids in the blood. This union is what prevents blood sugars from converting to fats.

Please note: This product was formerly known as Aztec Nopal Cactus. There have also been companies marketing this under the name Litramine in other markets.
