Chronic Inflammation: "The Root Cause!"

According to the popular health expert, Dr. Andrew Weil (MD), who was interviewed on the Dr. Oz show in October 2012, "Chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses - including heart disease, many cancers, and Alzheimer's disease."  

Dr. Weil notes that inflammation has a beneficial role in the body as a healing response to bring nourishment and more immune activity to a site of injury or infection.  Yet, he says, "when inflammation persists or serves no purpose, it damages the body and causes illness. " He observes that there are a number of factors that contribute to inflammation, including "stress, lack of exercise, genetic predisposition, and exposure to toxins (like secondhand tobacco smoke)," and "dietary choices" which he says also plays a big role.  

The answer to better health, he states, lies in "learning how specific foods influence the inflammatory process" so that one may follow "the best strategy for containing it and reducing long-term risks."  (Link to Dr. Weil's Anti-Inflammatory Diet)  

Dr. Weil says you can adapt your diet according to anti-inflammatory diet principles.  He has provided an "Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid" that "provides a blue print for a lifetime of optimum nutrition."  He declares:  "Simple changes in how you eat can help counteract chronic inflammation, a root cause of many serious diseases, including:

*  Heart Disease
*  Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases
*  Age-related disorders, including many cancers
*  Auto-immune diseases as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus."  (Link to Dr. Weil)

Our Mission Focus:

It is with this dietary focus that our company, Prickly Pear Products LLC has chosen to sell products that promote "Health and Nutrition from the Desert." We hope you will consider incorporating some of our products in your choice to follow a healthy lifestyle and cuisine, particularly as it relates to eliminating or reducing painful, inflammation-based issues that are so common as people age.  The Prickly Pear has also been touted for helping people with muscle recovery after workouts.

* Note: Dr. Oz is not giving a product endorsement, but rather speaking of the benefits of prickly pear extract in general.


III.  Prickly Pear Red Fruit Powder 

Our powder comes from the red Prickly Pear Fruit, not the cactus pad.  It is rich in betalains - the antioxidants which support a healthy inflammation response.

 Our  Prickly Pear Red Fruit Powder: is the newest powder to be sold to consumers and comes from the Prickly Pear Fruit which grows on the Nopal Cactus.  It is produced in the USA, and is receiving great reviews by all who have tried it. Many of our customers testimonials reflect its value in helping them reduce inflammation.  For many people this is a   good affordable alternative to buying prickly pear juice.  It is also very popular to mix into beverages such as juices, smoothies, healthy shakes, water, etc.  


IV. Prickly Pear Chewable Tablets         

(New!!   Some wonderful Reviews - see Customer Testimonials!)

If you like our Nochtli  prickly pear juice, you should like the Prickly Pear Chewable Tablets.  They come in two types of packaging, (1.) Nochtli bottle; and (2.) Resealable Mylar bag.  There are 60 tasty tablets per bottle or bag.  Made in the USA.  They provide the whole cactus nutrition of the prickly pear fruit and nopal pad.  They are convenient (i.e. long storage life, no measuring, & take it with you when you travel).


V.  Nopal Cactus Powder

Nopal powder is derived from the green pads of the nopal prickly pear cactus.  (These are the nopal pads that prickly pear fruit grow on, also known as "nopalitos.")  They are dehydrated and milled into a fine powder.  Research studies also recommend this powder for help with inflammation, cholesterol management, and blood glucose levels.  This vegetable cactus plant (Ficus Opuntia Indica) provides good fiber, vitamins, and nutrients.

Recently there has an interest in people purchasing "Cactus Water" for blood sugar balance and the other nutrients and antioxidants found there.  They ask me if this is the same Nopal that is used in Cactus water.  The answer is yes, although you have the choice between the Nopal cactus pad (in powder form) or the Prickly Pear fruit (Prickly Pear Powder) that grows on the Nopal cactus.  In either case, depending which you prefer, consider buying either of these two powders to make your own Cactus Water drink.  It's a MUCH better value!  (It's a lot cheaper adding your own water!)
