Having shared with you some issues regarding my health and medications, I’m not sure I’ve ever mentioned I prefer to use natural supplements and herbs. That said, when I finally received actual diagnosis I committed to taking medication that relieved my symptoms and anything I desire to take has to be cleared through much research, conversations with doctors as well as a friend I have who’s a chemist.
My interest in supplements and herbs is what prompted me to tell you about TriVita’s Nopalea, a wellness drink. According to their site, “Nopalea (Nō-pah lāy’uh) is a tasty wellness drink sourced from the fruit of the Nopal cactus (Opuntia Ficus Indica). The healing properties of the Nopal cactus have been relied on for centuries by native peoples, and they’re now available in Nopalea.” The product is touted as relieving body pain, reducing swelling in joints and improving breathing.
I did a little snooping and found a variety of opinions about the efficacy of the product. To try it for yourself, TriVita is offering 32-ounce bottles of Nopalea for free, but you’ll have to *pay $9.95 for shipping and handling.
