Sonoran Bloom Nopalea Research and Science

The Scientific Research that Proves that Nopalea Works

The benefits of the Nopal cactus fruit have been richly documented and there are hundreds of scientific papers that are archived by the National Institutes of Health nationwide supporting the research that shows the healing power of betalains and other ingredients contained in Nopalea.

The Nopal cactus fruit has been dubbed a “superfruit” because it contains rare and potent betalains, proven antioxidants that encourage good health and wellness in those who take it. The benefits of Nopalea’s ingredients have been documented in peer-reviewed journals that have carried out research into its various properties:

  • Anti-Toxin Properties

The Nopal cactus has been shown to protect against oxidative damage, against chorpyrifos damage and to protect the liver from carbon tetrachloride injury.

  • Anti-Inflammatory Properties

The betalains that are so richly found in Nopalea are proven anti-inflammatories. Their benefits are well-documented as natural anti-inflammatories. They protect cells that have been damaged and reduce the inflammation that can lead to a host of other diseases.

  • Boost the Immune System

Scientific research has shown links between betalains and T-cell activation. The healthier you are, the better your chances of fighting off infection and the toxins that can lead to inflammation and illness.

  • Protect the Brain

The Nopal fruit has undergone research showing the neuroprotective effects of certain flavonoids that have anti-oxidant benefits. Its effects have also been measured on alcohol hangover symptoms and neuronal injury.
