Nopal is an all-natural organic food product that is made with 100% natural dehydrated leaves of a cactus called Opuntia ficus-indica, commonly known as Barbary fig or prickly pear. In Mexico the Nopales (from the Nahuatl word nopalli for the pads) are a vegetable made from the young cladophyll (pad) segments of prickly pear, carefully peeled to remove the spines.
NOPAL is a new nutritional supplement rich in nutrients and fibre (soluble and insoluble) and has been shown to be beneficial for weight management.
The high fibre content (approx. >30% by weight) of Nopal promotes satiety by increasing its volume in the stomach and by naturally slowing transit time, hence aiding glucose regulation. This product can aid digestive function (including gut flora regulation), improving glycemic regulation and promote normal inflammatory responses through regulation of blood lipids.
Nopal is a valuable source of fibre (both soluble and insoluble) including the prebiotic arabinogalactan, as well as 17 amino acids, vitamins (including beta carotene and vitamin C) and minerals including calcium, magnesium and potassium.
