Qi Nopal and Reduction of High Blood Sugar to Normal Levels
Nopal Cactus strengthens the liver and the pancreas thereby improving the ability of insulin to stimulate the movement of glucose from the blood into body cells where it is used as energy. A recent study with adult-onset diabetics in Mexico showed that there was a clear hypoglycemic effect on the obese. insulin-resistant patients, with simultaneously lowered serum levels of low-density cholesterols and triglycerides. Nopal is a healthy food for diabetics because it slows the digestion of carbohydrates thereby slowing the insulin production. Nopal also helps to lower the blood sugar and it is low in calories and sodium.
Reduced High cholesterol and Fat levels
Nopal Cactus amino acids, fibre and B3 (niacin) prevent excess blood sugar conversions into fats, while reducing the total cholesterol, triglyceride and LDL cholesterol levels by metabolizing fat and fatty acids and eliminating excess bile acids (excess bile acid is eventually converted into cholesterol). Other research studies on B3 (niacin) show its conversion effects of LDL (bad) to HDL (good) forms of cholesterol and help decrease the risk of heart disease.
Studies have shown that Nopal Cactus actually improves the function of the immune system. In fact, phytochemicals are powerful allies of the body's immune system, allowing it to defend the body against all types of pathogens. Lab animals given cactus juice demonstrate increased immune efficiency with regards to tumor growth, Epstein- Barr virus and suppressed immune response.
The amounts of phytochemicals found in nearly MI species of cacti make nopal a highly desirable and sought after commodity. Researchers have proven that phytochemicals inhibit cancer growth and may prevent cancer from developing. it is even considered the backbone of whole-food cancer prevention. The cactus contains many of these phytochemicals in quantities greater than many other more traditional plant foods.
Help Obesity with 18 Amino Acids
Nopal Cactus 18 amino acids, 8 of which are essential and must be ingested as food, provide you with more energy and less fatigue by helping the body to lower blood sugar; elevate moods, suppress the appetite and provide nutrients. Fat build up is prevented, while fat break down and excretion is increased. Insoluble fibres such as Lignan is known for increasing satiety and eliminating excessive binges. Nopal's vegetable protein helps the body pull fluids from the tissues back into the bloodstream thereby diminishing cellulite and fluid retention.
Help Digestion / liver function
Nopal Cactus naturally available vitamins A, B1, 2, 3, C, minerals: Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Iron, and Fibres in Lignin, Cellulose, Hemicellulose, Pectin, Mucilages, and Gum form along with the 17 amino acids help to detoxify and support not only the liver but also the body in general. Ammonia, free radicals and environmental toxins such as alcohol and cigarette smoke-which all suppress the immune system are removed by Nopal. Nopal also aids in the balancing and calming of the nervous system, which benefits the body's overall function.
Strengthens the Urinary System
The juice of nopal is widely used as an anti- inflammatory diuretic. Where there is pain on urination, with a continuing dull ache in the urethra and bladder well after completion, the juice can be taken to decrease the pain.
- Vegetarian Food Combining
Nopal's 17 amino acids, fibres, vitamins and minerals address the needs of a vegetarian diet..
- Colon Cleansing
Nopal contains both soluble and insoluble dietary fibres. The insoluble dietary fibre in NOPAL (more commonly known as roughage), absorbs water and gently hastens food through the digestive track and contributes to regular bowel movements. In addition the presence of insoluble fibres in the colon help to dilute the concentration of potential carcinogens that may be present. Soluble fibres also contribute to regularity. Furthermore NOPAL is a gentle alternative to psyllium for those with a sensitivity or allergy to psyllium.
The effects of the amino acids and fibre, including the anti-oxidant of Nopal's vitamin C and A (B-carotene) prevents the likelihood of blood vessel wall damage and the formation of fatty plaques.
- Gastric Ulcers / Gastrointestinal Disorders
Nopal vegetable fibres and mucilages control excess gastric acid production and protect the Gastrointestial mucosa. This pH buffering and coating has been studied for the prevention of damages that may occur from ingesting spicy foods, aspirin and other NSAIDs.
