well i started taking it about 3 weeks ago, i have had a bad back for years and now at my age i could not sleep more then 4 hours. and i don't sell this stuff or want too, but i got to tell you it works i now sleep 9 to 12 hours at night now. most of the pain in my body is gone, so if you and like others think it's a scam oh well then i am living proof that this drink works. email me i will even give you my phone number.

Yeah this drink works well.....(pshhh) Yeah anyone can say that. Okay! Its just another market $. Heck you can eat fruit that will cure everything lol yeah well im not falling for this scam!! I rather stick to fruit from my back yard.

The "nopal catctus" is also more commonly know as the "prickly pear cactus", and it grows all over the southwestern U.S. People have been using the fruit and the paddles of the cactus as food for a very very long time, and you can often find both in any Mexican food market (I'm in Los Angeles, easy enough to find it here). I sincerely doubt any health benefit from the fruit would be suddenly discovered after all this time by one company set on marketing the juice, but if you do perceive some benefit from this product know that it is no closely guarded wonder fruit (and I wouldn't pay much for it). You can get it from the market, or in many places pick it at the side of the road, personally I have found that once they are skinned and the needles removed they do make an reasonable smoothie.

Im a person who eats lots of fruits and vegetables daily. Yet I have had issues with my skin for many years. I have tried popular products such as Proactive, Oil of Olay , Mary Kay and the list goes on and on. Although all of these products worked to some extent, they never totally gave me the results I was looking for. Well I tried Noplea and after 3 or 4 weeks my skin improved significantly. I had no side effects. What side effects could you have from a fruit that comes from a plant? Im not sure how it works but I believe it reduces cell inflammation in my body. My family and friends have noticed the difference, and compliment me often. I am a believer of the product only because it worked so well for me. I truly believe that anything natural that you put in your body is so much better than the chemical products that are made in a lab. So I will continue to purchase this drink. I hope more companies will create products that are created with natural ingredients. There is a very high demand for these types of products. Sometimes its best to try it for yourself to see if it really works.

I belong to a support group for a very painful illness & a new member wrote in claiming to be "cured" (& of course selling) this product under her #). She had never posted anything about her illness before - but suddenly she was the worst of the worst & claiming to have been kicked off another support group site for doing the exact same thing. Her posts are very suspicious to me - as the seem to be coming straight out of a MLM "handbook" - even going as far as to include he 8 yr. old nephew "sneaking" a drink of her "delicious" drink - but her "mean sister" would not order it for him, no matter how much he begged. She claims to have had disease as bad as you can have it - with no previous bio on this group nor does she explain HOW she acquired it. She just keeps saying that to be sure to use her # when we spend $120.00 +s+h when we order 4 miraculous 8oz bottles. I did a little digging around and it seems this person may have been on other support groups and pages claiming to be cured of different Dx's. Sorry, but I smell someone who wants to make money off desperate people & I find that reprehensible.

I wonder, how much are the pharmaceutical companies paying scam advocates to bunk anything not put out by the big companies?

All I know is that I bought some and at the time mostly wanted to get it for my husband who has had chronic pain for years. I felt fine when I started drinking it......we are getting ready to begin the third week this next week and I know my body very well.....since last weekend and every day thereafter I have NEVER been so tired, and felt SO SICK!!!! Sick to my stomach, VERY tired, MUCH more than usual....hey, they said this stuff is supposed to IMPROVE your health but I feel like I have been poisoned. So my advice to anyone reading this, Nopalea IS just a fruit juice, and quite frankly I feel that ANY good pure organic juice will improve one's health but THIS STUFF???? I am NOT going to drink the SHIT for the next three days and if I start feeling better like myself again instead of some fuc_ing ALIEN that just ate a sh_tload of CRYPTONITE, I am sending back EVERY LAST BOTTLE AND DEMANDING A REFUND!!!!

This Cactus fruit is not a new discovery. My gandmother use to give it to us as kids and it did keep us from getting sick and when we did the flu passed much faster. It's know in the Mexican and Indian culture to be super healthy for you. I drink it home made style and I am told I look 20 years younger than my age to this day than my real age. Believe it or not it's still a healthy drink regardless of any of the claims above good ,bad or in-different.

I really wanted this stuff to work, figured it was worth a try so loaded up for 2 months and...no changes at all. When my "wellness consultant" would call he said many people found relief after buying the additional B-12 he would sell me. Typical MLM, if it don't work sell 'em some more. I knew it was probaly a scam but I have pain in my hands and I hate taking meds, so...

RE: Consumer October 16 2011 I've never taken the product- I came here looking for actual user reviews to see if it's legit - so I'm not endorsing the product in any way when I say this: It sounds to me like you're going through detox. When your body is removing a high level of toxins, you can feel very sick and tired. Sometimes you will even feel the same way you felt when you were exposed to them going in - for instance, if you ever smoked or did drugs, you might feel feelings reminiscent of smoking or using drugs while your body is detoxing them from you. If you can't stand it, I might suggest cutting back a bit to see if they ease up, and you'll just go through a longer, but less severe, detoxing. But you might owe it to yourself to see it through and get them out, and you'll feel infinitely better on the other end. Up your water intake, and it should help carry them out of you. It's just a thought. I have no idea if this is your case, but it was what came to mind when I was reading what you wrote.

Nopalea ferments quickly. Your body is not going through "detox" when you've been drinking this & feel fine then suddenly feel sick like the one poster replied. Hell, read the other reviews on it regarding the fermenting & how the bottles will bulge as a sign of the fermentation process. TriVita claims ohhh yeah we had a "quality issues with excess air" inside the bottles... Really ??? That's their explanation for bottles that are about to burst with contents that reek ? Ridiculous !

for years ive been having lower back pain and 7 months ago giving birth to a child my muscles and back took a hit then ive tried every medication and therpy to get myself back to normal ...it didnt work ..then i tried nopalea and i was surprised it worked because like u all i thought u know just another product that people r trying to make money off of ..but it amazingly worked ... u drink 6 oz a day for 30 days then 1 oz every day after that i read that one girl got sick off it ... this product works differently for different people ..just like taking a new medication this person probably drank too much of it a day and made herself sick ....all i know is that this isnt a scam its obvious that different people will react differently to it ....but it do work and its definitly not a scam because ive been pain free for 3 months

plus they have 60 day money back gaurenteed

I have not tried this product yet. I have had lower back, shoulder, and hip pain for some time now. I have ordered 4 bottles and am going to try with an open mind. I will post the results as IRONRN.....lets hope I have pain relief within the 60 days because I smell a refund!!

Nopalea worked well for me! I suffer from arthritis pain in several joints. My thumb is my "barometer". It would ache frequently for hours at a time. Within a few days on the product the ache stopped. When I ran out of Nopalea the pain returned. Along the way, I noticed that my lower back pains which were admittedly less frequent although more annoying than the thumb pains have not occurred since I started the product. I'm happy to stick with it till those pains return. As a reordering customer I guess I am now also part of the MLM organization. However, I have no particular desire to pursue the business. My current business is far too demanding and lucrative to divert any attention away from it. So, yes, that means I can easily afford a product like this and will stick with it while it works.

I have been taking Nopalea for about 3 weeks now and it works very well. Try it and see.! I do not work for nor am I affiliated with anything to do with making money off of Nopalea. It just works. I had terrible pain in my hands and wrists before starting Nopalea. Within 3 days my pain and stiffness started to subside. Today, the pain and stiffness is virtually gone. Nothing else has helped. Not even the anti inflammatories that I get from the Doctor. They also screw my stomach up badly. Nopalea does not! Best thing I have found for my pain and inflammation.

I just started yesterday. I have five bottles. I will wait the full thirty days and let you know what results I get from this stuff. I have high blood pressure, diabetes, and prostate cancer. If any of these change slightly, I will be happy. JPW

I was just reading these posts out of curiosity, but most of all, my question is ....How on earth can people afford this????? At 3 oz a day, 1 bottle is a 10 day supply......$100+ a month is certainly not in MY budget

I used Napolea to combat Neuropathy (diagnosed by a doctor) and unfortunately, there was no improvement for me after using 7 bottles of this drink. They refunded all my money to me and asked no questions. This is the only "SCAM" that I ever heard of that will return your money if you're not satisfied with the product!!!!

If you just stop eating refined/processed foods your aches and pains will subside and go away,. Fresh fruit/spinach smoothies took the arthritis out of my hands. Give it a try. Alot less expensive.

There is a saying, "Anything that you are not UP on you are DOWN on." I spent 2 days researching everything I could find on Nopalea. Obviously, you have not done your homework and researched this out before making such unfounded statements. I found over 300 different sources of research data written by scientists, doctors, universities, and found out that it is now going to be included in the 2012 Physicians’ Desk Reference. Doctors and even dentists are recommending this product as well as experts in pain management fields. When this product was recommended to me by a friend, it took me 2 monthes before I finally ordered the product. It was the best money that I have ever spent. I was so beat up healthwise with multiple issues and I am a very happy customer. As for the cost...people spend more per day on a cup of coffee than this stuff costs per day. What I spent on meds and co-pays far exceeds the money I have spent on Nopalea. It is not covering up my symptoms, but going to the source of the problem and has actually helped me immensely. I am a 53 year old retired grandmother and feel better than I have felt in many many years. DO YOUR RESEARCH or your credibility will be ruined. I know that I will no longer read a review from you again.

I am 60 yrs old and I drank 6 ounces a day of this product for 6 months. The rep I spoke with told me because I'd been having pain for so many years from sciatica/spinal stenosis I'd need more time to see results. I was very disappointed because I felt no relief whatsoever and I could only get my money back for 2 of those months.

I will be watching closely as a "potential" consumer. As an RN I have been on my feet well, it seems like ....forever . Im also not wanting to be scammed. My chronic back and foot pain are looking to be relieved however, 110.00 dollars .... REALLY. I've spent my entire career doing my best to help others and I make good money but, if I could help through a product like this it would not be so OVER priced. The price alone makes me doubt it. I know that every hard working "achy" being would buy a product that works. Have it as an affordable price ....then have it in every home.

It is good I know only Jesus performed miracles. I would never look to a product to perform a miracle, only to give me relief. Doctor's are very much aware of Nopalea. Know your facts before you post. You obviously are not satisfied, however that is no reason to write such a post. Tylenol may work for me but not for you, doesn't mean Tylenol doesn't work. Advil may work for you and not for me, doesn't mean Advil doesn't work. Know the source of miracles. Know where you should place your faith and where you shouldn't. Trivita is promoting a product, take it as such. From your responses, for some it works for some it doesn't, that's what ALL products do. Enough said.

Don't knock it until you have tried. It worked for my inflammation. I know of a couple of people it didn't work for but they were able exercise the guarantee and get a refund, minus their shipping cost. I personally purchase a four pack for a woman with whom I attend church, who was having problems and she, hearsay, reported to me that it not only helped her inflammation but also a skin condition. It is expensive and I'm looking for an alternative source, now that I know what I'm looking for. In the meantime I will continue to take nopalea. I did extensive research on the internet using the terms "prickly pear cactus" and "nopal" and found independent research of the healing properties of the nopal cactus. I suggest that the author of Nopalea Scam do the same before making unfounded claims based up his/her opinion without any research references to back up their claim that Nopalea is a Scam. I did talk to my doctor and he didn't recommend it nor did he not recommend it. He said he would look it up and let me know if he found any interactions between nopalea and the medication I was taking. I recently had a office visit and he asked; "Are you still taking that expensive Nopalea?" To which I replied; "Yes." If you are in pain try and if it doesn't work for you take advantage of the refund. I'm a husband, a father, a retired public service lawyer for abused children and I take nopalea.

Betalains were first found in a plant that is known scientifically as "Beta vulgaris." The word "betalain" is derived from the name of the Beta vulgaris plant. The Beta vulgaris plant has as much or more betalain than Nopal cactus, particularly in its root structure. So, why do the infomercials promote the exotic Nopal cactus? Because "Beta vulgaris" plants are otherwise known as beets. Nobody would pay $30-$40 for a bottle of beet juice.

I am on my third order of Nopalea and the verdict is still out. I am so riddled with pain and inflammation that I am still hoping to get some relief. However, I honestly can't say I have noticed a difference that would make me take notice and I drink 1/3 to 1/2 a day for about 4-5 months now. Will let you know when I finish this last batch if I notice any difference. I think I do like their vitamin b12, so I might just consider that. One post talked about her skin and I have real dry skin, but I was noticing that seems to be getting smoother on my arms. I am sorry that there is so many people really suffering out there and trying desperately to find anything not to even cure since that is too much to ask with multiple chronic issues....but at least help.

Being self reliant and the education of a product which we may consume to improve ones health and wellness is always something I personally have always strived . The ingredients in the Nopalea drink are essentially items that can be purchased either at the grocery store, health store or online from various web sites for a fraction if what they are charging people. In this economy one should never be hasty about spending our hard earned money on a pretty fuscia bottle of fruit juice. I thought we all have grown beyond the days of the snake oil salesman, apparently not. Buying a prepackaged plastic bottle of hope is impacting a lot more than our achey knees. Try supporting local businesses providing education of health & one on one interaction and not these fly by night fountain of youth scams. Dip your toe in the water b4 you jump in

I've been reading all the comments about Nopalea. It sounds like it is limited in its effectiveness. To the lady that wrote on January 27, 2012 I would suggest that you seek out a reliable chiropractor that practices CRA. I have had numerous injuries during my 37 years as a carpenter and my chiropractor has healed and/or cured me 95% of the time. Through CRA he cured me of an allergy to shellfish and healed me of alopecia areata. He has eliminated pain and inflammation through the use of chiropracty. When I was very run down, tired all the time, he strengthened my adrenal glands, giving me new energy. He also reduced my arthritis in my thumb, so that it only gives me trouble occasionally. You know pain and inflammation can be a direct result of misalignment of the spine. I went to regular MD's for all these problems and never had any success. There normal treatment was toxic pills. Just remember, these drugs put out by the drug companies are toxic, but they tone down their toxicity by calling them "side affects". CRA uses supplements, grown organically in Wisconsin, and processed under strict guidelines. Anyway, good luck.

I just bought this product, and they had a five bottles for the price of four special. I have fibromyalgia and arthritis. I have lower back pain, and a lot of neck and shoulder pain, and occassional gout flares in one toe joint. So, I know a bit about pain. I have only been drinking it four days now. I still have pain, and was not expecting a miracle cure overnight. I can say though that my neck and shoulder pain has decreased in just four days by about 20%. Now, I know that can be coincidental, but it is odd with the timing of the improvement. A few min. after I drink it, I feel pleasantly relaxed too, sort of a bit sleepy in fact. But, I am not tired of feeling sick in any way during the day. For those of you that have seen marked improvement and have been on it for awhile, what would you say is the average time it takes to really start to make changes that are very noticeable for you? I am now doing the 6oz. a day loading dose, and will do it for the whole 30 days as the recommend. I feel like if I am not better by more than 20% in 30 days, I will agree with those that feel it is a scam, but for now, I am giving it the benefit of the doubt. Just curious about the average length of time it took for you all to say "wow, there is something to this!"

I am not sure wrote that top note,but I have a thought. If you think Dr's have all the answers you better look again. I worked with them for 26 years as a Respiratory Therapist and know that when they say they are PRACTICING medicine they really mean it. Practice is right. We all need to take control of our health and study and search to look for things that work for each of us. I looked at Nopealea because of the listed antinflammatory properties. I can say for my wife and myself, we are noticing BIG changes. I love what its doing for ME and my wife loves what it does for her. your comment at the top is also not based on scientific data, so be careful who you direct away from something that may help them. it may not be for you, but it does for others. have a great day.

I would like to know what Nopalea contains in the way of vitamins and minerals.
