A Natural Antioxidant
Betalains belong to a class of very potent antioxidants rarely found in plants, but present in large quantities in the fruit of the Nopal cactus.
What are Betalains?
The Betalain pigments are responsible for the striking pink color of certain flower petals and plants such as beets and the Nopal cactus fruit. Not only do they give a vibrant color, they are also powerful antioxidants and they are found in only a handful of plants around the world.
The fruit of the Nopal cactus contains one the most elevated levels of betalains of any plant, indeed in all of nature.
What do Betalains do?
Nopalea is made with Nopal cactus fruit, so when you take Nopalea your system takes in the betalains. Once they are in your system, they begin to work their magic: reducing toxins, allowing nutrients to enter each and every cell in order to give you back your vitality. For people who suffer from inflammation of joints and muscles, betalains help to reduce that inflammation, which can in turn lead to disease.
