    I HAVE MS, SEVERE PLAQUE PSORIASIS, HBP, AND ARTHRITIS. AFTER NUMEROUS PRESCRIPTIONS WITH HORRIBLE SIDE-EFFECTS I DID SOME RESEARCH ON NOPAL. ALL MY AILMENTS WERE NOTED AS BEING RELIEVED FOR THOSE USING IT.(EXCEPT THE MS) THE JOINT STIFFNESS, SPASTIC EPISODES (AND THEREFORE THE PAIN) WERE LESS INTENSE AFTER THE FIRST 2 WKS USING 2000 MG PER DAY. AFTER 4 WEEKS THE PLAQUE SKIN PATCHES BEGAN TO D ... Show Full Comment

    I have an inherited virus Familial Mediterranean Fever. This under the name Nopal Cactus has helped more than anything I have had to control the inflammatory outbursts causing the body cavity to inflame and fever I suffer and stopped the kidney stone manufacturing.

    I have inflamation in my feet. The pain was unbearable. My friend sent me a bottled of Nopalea (commercial Juice) It seemed to help, but was expensive and a MML propuct. I researched how to make my own juice and do so. It saves $ and I know exactly what I am ingesting. I have no side effects and after one month my pain from inflamation is decreased. I am diabetic and notice no drop in my blo ... Show Full Comment

I was so bloated after eating, it was painful. I tried many things but surprisingly this prickly pear took the bloat out. Not only that but I've had back pain usually at night from a car accident and also that is gone. Foggihead, gone. H ... Show Full Comment

    It's rare that i go online to post reviews and things like this but i felt the need to share my story because i feel this fruit is definitely something that can help people. I have been suffering from an inflammatory eye condition called episcleritis--a condition with normally unknown causes which makes your eye all red and sore. It's not the most serious condition but it is recurring and ... Show Full Comment
