Trivita is again offering a sample of their popular anti-inflammatory beverage, nopalea, for free (but you have to pay shipping and handling). Nopalea is a drink that comes from the fruit of the Nopal cactus (Opuntia Ficus Indica). The cactus is very rich in a certain type of antioxidants called bioflavinoids which have shown to be a very effective and natural means of reducing inflammation to the joints, respiratory system, digestive tract, relieves muscle swelling, and more. These little things also capture “free radical cells,” the cells that scientists believe cause certain diseases, including cancers.
Bioflavinoids give certain fruits and vegetables their bright colors, found in red and green peppers, all kinds of citrus fruits, berries, red onions, red wine, and — very importantly — dark chocolate! Bioflavinoids are also found in the Nopal cactus fruit! So they made a convenient drink out of it.
I’ve been meaning to purchase the sample but never got that “round tuit,” haha. I think I am going to get a few bottles and try this out. I HATE taking pills and some mornings my joints are pretty stiff. I also read in some health articles that bioflavinoids and Vitamin C taken together are more effective and have been shown to improve eye health!
Included in the Nopalea sample is a chart in which you can track progress to see if the drink is having an effect on your health. I love “scientific” stuff like that so I’m going to do it.
OK, now for the details: Trivita is offering a free 32-ounce sample of their Nopalea beverage, but you must pay $9.95 for shipping and handling. The drink has no artificial ingredients. It’s sweetened with the natural sugar agave nctar (which is like honey). When first starting the drink, drink 3to 6 ounces a day for the first 30 days, then drink 1 to 3 ounces a day for regular maintenance.
The drink is NOT a medication. It is a dietary supplement. Trivita says that their statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. There are no known contraindications with medications, but if you take any meds you should talk with your doctor before taking the drink, just to be on the safe side. Trivita is compensating me for mentioning the product in this post but all opinions are completely mine. I’m not a doctor and therefore I cannot dispense medical advice.
