geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. i had pain and inflammation in my elbow, my wrist and my arm, and within three weeks of taking nopalea, i noticed that the pain had disappeared. i love the product; i love how it tastes, how it makes me feel. there's just no way you can taste nopalea and not love it. since i've been taking nopalea, i do not have any inflammation, my pain has ceased. once i started taking this for four or five days, it was great. i'm back doing my yoga, back walking the dog every day and taking the pilates. (narrator) the people you just saw, all suffered from some sort of pain
and discomfort caused by chronic inflammation in the body. could a natural wellness drink really help people with painful symptoms like chronic neck and back pain, swollen joints and muscles aches? or how about even sinus infections, skin disorders, respiratory problems and more? well stay tuned to discover a new and natural anti-inflammatory wellness drink that's changing peoples' lives. the tumor was in the pelvis, hip and spine. after the surgery, i had a lot of nerve pain, and phantom pain. but then i discovered nopalea. a man from church gave me a bottle, and i began taking it in the morning and at night, and within four weeks, i've noticed a dramatic change in my pain. the pain in my hip that would go down my leg is gone, the pain in my spine is gone and my phantom pain has been significantly reduced.
(narrator) the real stories you are hearing, all have one thing in common, relief from chronic inflammation in the body. today, medical experts and scientists are searching for solutions to help combat chronic inflammation of the body like never before. in fact, a recent major publication covered the dangers of high levels of inflammation in the body, and how it's now being linked to so many different illnesses and diseases. however, now there is a natural alternative that can help the body reduce chronic inflammation without the worries of negative side effects. nopalea, made directly from the natural rich fruit of the sonoran desert's nopal cactus. this amazing cactus survives the extreme hot and dry conditions of the sonoran desert, and its vital nutrients can help you too. the nopal cactus, grown in the sonora desert, the harshest environment on the planet, has to develop an extraordinary reserve of betalains in order to survive. when people and animals eat the fruit, they get these betalains that drive down the inflammation in their bodies.
we need nutrient protection every day to help our body wash away toxins and build our defenses. betalains in nopalea are rushed to the cells where they help target unhealthy cells. betalains support your body as you heal, they quench runaway inflammation and help the cells return to vibrant health. unless a cell's too toxic to be saved, then macrofascias scavenge the toxic cell and takes it away. this leaves our cells and our body full of energy. (narrator) finally, a product that can help your body reduce painful symptoms caused by inflammation, and it comes in the form of a great-tasting wellness drink. nopalea is delicious; we all absolutely love the taste of nopalea. it's very sweet and fruity; my children love the taste as well. it's nopalicious. i love the taste of nopalea. the first time i tried it, i was surprised; it is exceptional. susan and i have lived here in the sonoran desert for nearly 30 years. we've enjoyed the desert lifestyle and the amenities it offers, but we have never thought of it
as an oasis of wellness. then i made a trip into the sonoran desert in mexico where i made an amazing discovery. sitting around a campfire one evening with seven natives, they began to share with me about the people who have lived in the desert for hundreds of years. they had no modern conveniences like air conditioning, refrigeration, or running water. and they lived without modern medicine and drugs. yet, they not only survived, they thrived, without obesity and diabetes and other inflammatory diseases that so many people suffer from today. they told me the secret to their wellness was the healing plants of the sonoran desert. for centuries, the native american people have been using the plants of the sonoran desert for food, medicine, spiritual needs. prickly pear cactus, or the nopal is a good example of that. the flowers are edible, the fruit a great protein source,
