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.

Just got done watching this infommercial.. what a scam..I guess the whole acai berry scam drowned out so why not find another "uncommon fruit" and use the same pitch with a different disease...and people will fall for it..come on!! The founder claims he came upon the cure for his wife while camping with "Mexican Natives".. are you kidding me??

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.

WELL REGARDLESS IF THIS WORKS OR NOT (HAVE NOT TRIED IT) I WOULD MUCH RATHER PAY FOR SOMETHING LIKE THAT AND GIVE IT A TRY THAN PAY AND TAKE MEDICINES FROM PHARMACUTICLES AND DOCTORS THAT THEY SHOVE DOWN YOUR THROAT ALL THE TIME AND GET A KICK BACK FOR DOING IT! THE SIDE EFFECTS ARE SO SERIOUS THEY COULD CAUSE DEATH, NOT TO MENTION OTHER THINGS. I HAVE FIBROMYALGIA AND HAVE FOR OVER 10 YEARS. SO I HAVE BEEN ON EVERY MED AND I SAID THE HECK WITH IT NOT ANYMORE. I WOULD RATHER SUFFER. BUT LET ME TELL YOU ONE THING ANYTHING NATURAL AS IN FRUITS AND VEGGIES ARE BETTER FOR YOU AND WILL HEAL YOU. TALK TO ANY CANCER PATIENT THAT HAS SURVIVED AND 9 OUT OF 10 WELL TELL YOU IT WAS BECAUSE THEY CHANGED THEIR DIETS. SO IF YOU DONT WANT TO AT LEAST TRY SOMETHING LIKE THIS, THEN DO START YOUR OWN GARDEN AND PLANT FRUIT TREES. GOD GAVE US FOOD TO HEAL US AND HELP US BUT WE ABUSE IT OR PRESERVE IT WITH CHEMICALS! SO DONT DOWN THINGS UNTIL YOU'VE TRIED THEM. I CAN TELL YOU NOW MOST OF THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS ARE FROM UNHEALTHY PEOPLE WHO RATHER DIE OF A HEART ATTACK THEN EAT RIGHT AND LIVE RIGHT! JUST SAYING...................................

Many of the Consumer posts here appear to be written by the same person, considering that the spelling and grammar errors are remarkably similar. No matter, though -- we are talking about a common roadside cactus that growth practically everywhere in the SW and Mexico, yet they are charging more than any fruit or vegetable juice ever known to mankind. It's all in your heads, people. Thanks for reminding me how gullible and idiotic we humans are even in the year 2012. Not only is every claim unproven by things called 'FACTS,' this company is a pyramid scheme of selling. MLM is just a fancy cover-up way of describing this. I see that none of you know how to do accurate research at all. So go enjoy your snake oil, and go broke staying sick and in pain.

I totally agree with the writer of this post. I am leary of anything to do with MLM, having been involved with several over the past 40 years and at the top of two, making thousands of dollars. These companies have flown me and my wife all over the country to "train" members and sign up new recruits. It is similar to a religious zeal. Once a person is bought into a product, company or lifestyle....their psyce is ny set. They believe in the product, which may have some benefits but no more than many other products. Their downline depend on them and friendships are formed. Many people have burned through their family and old friends trying to recruit them too. Sadly many good friends have been lost forever. That happened to me. You are with me and my "god" the product.., or I have no time for you now. Research carefully, most of these sly upline representatives of MLM companies will create websites that seem to Review a product..., or talk about it as if it may be a SCAM..., but within the comments are favorable testimonies and they can turn out to be actually a recruitment tool. THAT is a sad commentary on any company that would allow such a ploy. I know that Doctors don't know everything, no one does. I say ...eat fresh good food, live a CLEAN life without harmfull foods. Get a good amount of sleep at night, go to bed early and rise early. Moderate excercise is good. Do not overdo anything. Love like you have never loved before. I SAY RUN DON'T WALK AWAY from any product or lifestyle that is pushed on you which has material gain for any MLM or a hidden agenda. -Don / MLM Past Pro Currently; successful Real Estate Broker Me secret?

I have taken nopealea each time I have pain and it has helped me.to all of you that feel this is a scam because it did not work for you must remember no medicine work for every one.look at cancer drugs ,some people get well when they take kemo and some people pass away, this does;t mean that kemo do not work ,it do no adjust to every ones body.

I received a very expensive looking Nopalea color pamphlet in the mail today and it peaked my curiosity. It does say that with its powerful nutrients it helps reduce inflammation, detoxify and will help achieve optimal cellular health. It also states, "Scientifically Proven to contain bioflavonoids to help the body detoxify". I was very interested in this product for treating my arthritis, but, as soon as I found out the cost, and read that it is an MLM, I will not be ordering it. I will stock up on fruits containing high amounts of bioflavonoids, eat beets, spinach and red grapes for the same effect! Why not eat the real thing?

I am 55 years old, was taking no prescription drugs before fall two years ago. I fell from a ladder damaged neck and back. Fall caused arthritis to get hold of me really bad. After better than two years I was still in pain. Drugs did not work. Was taking muscle relaxers, pain meds coasting over $1000 a month. Now living with my mother, cannot live alone. Amazing results from first dose. I took 8 oz the first week or two then slacked down a bit. Yes my back pain is still there and my ability is very limited. But the constant pain from first or second dose was gone. Even ringing in ears stopped for a while. But comes back with degree of pain. Thank you Nopalaya. I am having some extensive dental work in the near future. Will let everyone know how or if it helps then also.

People are going to think a shill for the company,but I have to make these comments as miraculous as they sound.I'll be 63 in june, I don't drink or smoke so i'm in reasonable good health except for severe pain in both knees and the tops of my feet. It has been so bad , I have contemplated knee replacement surgery. But , after viewing the procedure on line ,I decided to get some ace knee supports so I could function, since the surgery seemed so radical. I want to point out that I'm a very skeptical person and not prone to exaggeration. I ordered the Nopalea , received it in the morning and drink about 3 0z and that evening before I went to bed about midnight I was feelin a little better, so I drink 3 more ounces. The next morning my pain was 90% gone. I went outside for about 3 hours and was able to extract myself from the toilet stool without the use of the handicap bar. I don't know what's going on ,but I'm on my second day as of this writing and I'm a different person with a completely new outlook on life so far. I know my results are unique,but I've made no other changes so I can't help but attribute the improvement to the Nopalea.

I first bought nopalea for my wife who has lupus and fibromyalgia she found relief from some of the effects of her ailments after drinking nopalea at about 3 weeks at 2 to 4 ounces per day. I started taking it 3 weeks ago at 2 ounces a day have noticed a huge reduction in my painful areas.l am 69 and spent 30 years as a pipe fitter while also being involved in the horse business in almost every aspect.l have been bucked off,fell off,stepped,run over and kicked.I have alot off inflammation from old injuries that is greatly reduced if not gone.I am a believer and think the cost is nominal for the good it does.

Whoever wrote this is a moron. None of this commentary is proof of anything. Your doctor will never recommend a natural remedy because almost none of them have any training in nutrition. Also "Scientific proof" is paid for by drug companies. Just as untrustworthy as an MLM company. Look at how every year diagnoses for cancer increases. Every year we become more and more sick because our medical institutions know nothing about living healthy. I have no interest in nopalea as a user or a seller but whoever wrote this article no matter how good their intent may be has left out of their argument any true proof or sound reasoning. By the way there are good products in MLM skeems. The reason they are sold that way is because for the respective products be it supplements or household cleaners, there is already to much competition in the market. This is the easiest way for an upstart to make a ton of money quick, or crack the market without selling their product to a industry powerhouse. this happens no matter how good a product is. There are plenty of scam products sold in traditional marketing situations.

Am responding primarily to tell individuals to take advantage of the"free trial"...even though "they" will tell you this is not enough, bla, bla, bla. I detest MMM and am in no way affiliated with Nopalea other than a recent 1st time consumer who tried this grasping at straws. With several chronic medical conditions and ample meds to keep an elephant free from pain,...I have little faith in American Medicine. That not being relative, I take only 1-2 tbsp. twice daily of Nopalea (recommended is 3-6 ozs), and for almost a month I have definitely experienced reduced pain and increased stamina. I also have had side effects so...weigh the upside vs. downside. I often try something myself when it comes to physical health as we are all different / unique.....a no brainer to comprehend the "fruits" of this cactus a positive.....so are grapes and pineapple. Often, one thing works for some, and not for others...why in the world do we have so many different "anti-depressants"---especially when it is well documented that they often afford many placebo & negative side effects? I would not call this a miracle or immediately get off all my meds---although I have discarded 1), get too excited....am, however, most grateful it is having positive benefits on my painful, inflamed, and tired body. Cured...no. Better.... definitely. Will continue to take until no benefits are experienced for myself ....... contempt prior to investigation often keeps one in a perpetual state of ignorance :)

I just saw a commercial on TV for this product. Cheryl Tiegs was doing the promoting. How can she represent a product that is a scam? Someone needs to thoroughly check this product out, someone who is not out to take money from innocent, desperate people, trying to get well. Pharmaceutical companies screw over consumers also when it comes to the medications they put on the market, again going to after the desperate, thinking they are going to get well. Almost every medication that comes from Pharmaceutical companies have terrible side effects, most times making the person worse. They need to be stopped also.

I called Nopalea to get their mailing address so I could send them a payment of $9.95 for the free bottle. The representative kept me on the phone for over ten minutes trying to convince me I need the $400 package and worked his way down to the $79 package even as I kept saying I only wanted the "free bottle" and wanted to send a money order for the shipping and handling of $9.95. He kept telling me that once my mother was on it hat I need to make sure she doesn't miss it and if I really want what is best for my mom I need to order in bulk. I am outraged that companies put out products that sick people and especially senior citizens get pressured to BUY MORE and that they "scare" them into buying items. But they said the stuff was free, just pay shipping and handling and that is what I expressed I wanted to do via money order only. The representative kept referring to my using a credit card and that I need to buy in bulk! There are unfair and hostile tactics being used by companies and are unfair and should be eliminated!

Has this drink been tested for safety? what is in it? was looking for content details, also side effects.

My first question to you, is how can you say something is a scam, if you have never tried the product for yourself. A while back I tried Nopelea when I was having some serious back pain that I have dealt with for over 20 years. Within 1 week of drinking the juice I started feeling better, increased energy, sleeping better. So to say this is a scam I believe is inflammatory to say the least. I have tried many different products over the years that have NOT lived up to their claims, but NOPELEA IS NOT ONE OF THEM!!!!! Do they charge too much for this drink,YES! And this is where my complaint lies. When I ran out of the juice, and could not afford to buy more, after about 2 weeks, my symptoms started to return. So in my opinion, yes this stuff works very well, but who can afford it. I am now looking into a less expensive way of getting the ingredients,so I can again feel better. Don't be so quick to judge results unless you have personal experience, and even then, each person reacts to a product differently.

I wouldn't buy from this company, http://www.nopalea.net/ . I called to get one bottle and they tried to sell me 10! Then I told them I am only interested in getting one but the guy refused to sell me just one. He said it's risk free and they sells more expansive than Amazon. If I really want to try I rather buy from Amazon because I can trust Amazon's costumer service. With such bad sales from Nopalea, you think you can get hold of any customer service if you need to return the product?

I was diagnosed with RA in my early 20's. I suffered badly and for many years took all the meds the Dr's prescribed and none of them helped. Then in 2011 a friend told me about Nopalea. I didn't believe her claims of it helping her for feel better. But in 2012 when my pain took a turn for the worse being desperate I ordered Nopalea. Before I did so my DR took test to see how high my inflammation level's were, and of course they were through the roof. A few days later I received the Nopalea and begun drinking it immediately. I couldn't even open a bottle of juice much less comb my hair. But 2 months later of just drinking nothing else but Nopalea my inflammation levels went down to normal. My Dr could not believe. He sent me for many tests which all came back normal. Today I am pain free and inflammation free because on Nopalea. It is now 2014 and it is still working for me. I'm no sale person just someone who's very happy to have found Nopalea.

I have had excellent results using Nopalea. It has been the medicinal that has most helped improve my pain level and functionality as one who struggles with a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. I took Nopalea about 3 months last Spring and Summer, stopping use of it around July of last year, and I was symptom free until an antibiotic taken in March of this year flared my inflammation. I just started Nopalea again a few weeks ago and am already much improved. Like any medicinal, each person responds differently to it, or it may not help at all for some. But for me, it works and I recommend it to others for them to try. I have stomach issues and can't take the higher doses for long. When it starts bothering my stomach, I back off to 1 ounce or so a day and it works great. Has it totally relieved my symptoms this go round? Not yet, but it is as effective for me as the meds like Lyrica, without the troublesome side effects.

I have been using Nopalea for 6 days now and I definitely notice an improvement in my back pain. Started to notice an improvement on Day 5 and this morning, was able to get out of bed without any discomfort and turn, bend, twist, stretch, move quickly etc without difficulty as soon as I got up. I have tried other products such as Tumeric, Krill Oil and other EFAs, FlexoPlex, MSM and even Costco's extra strength Glucosomine & MSM without any noticeable difference after using more than a month. Personally, I think there are some significant anti-inflammatory properties to Nopalea.

Four years ago the pain in my left hip developed to the point that I was no longer able to run or do Martial Arts. Chiropractic care and deep tissue massage did not help. An Orthopedic Doctor told me the cartilage in my hip was thinning and that I would need a hip replacement soon. After watching an infomercial about Nopalea I decided to give it a try. Within one month the pain had reduced to the point I was able to exercise again and my limp had drastically decreased. My hip has been stable for four years now and although the cartilage issue has not improved, I feel I have quite some time before I need that hip replacement. Looking at all the possible variables associated with my hip improvement, I can honestly say that Nopalea played a significant role in stabilizing my hip and reducing the pain.
