Reduction of High Blood Sugar to Normal Levels
DESERT BLOOM strengthens
the liver and the pancreas thereby improving the ability of insulin to
stimulate the movement of glucose from the blood into body cells where it is
used as energy. A recent study among adult-onset diabetics in Mexico showed
that there was a clear hypoglycemic effect on obese, insulin-resistant
patients, with simultaneously lowered serum levels of low-density cholesterols
and triglycerides. Nopal is a healthy food for diabetics because it slows
the digestion of carbohydrates. Nopal helps lower
excessive blood sugar and it is low in calories and sodium.
Reduced High cholesterol and Fat levels
DESERT BLOOM 's 18 amino
acids, fibre and B3 (niacin) prevent excess blood sugar conversions into fats,
while reducing total cholesterol, triglyceride and LDL cholesterol levels, by
metabolizing fat and fatty acids and eliminating excess bile acids (excess bile
acid is eventually converted into cholesterol). Other research studies on
B3 (niacin) show its ability to convert LDL (bad) to HDL (good) forms of
cholesterol, which helps decrease the risk of heart disease.
DESERT BLOOM Nopal Extract
in juice form may improve the function of the immune system due to
the Phytochemicals it contains. Phytochemicals are powerful
allies of the body's immune system, allowing it to defend the body against all
types of pathogens. Lab animals given Nopal juice demonstrate
increased immune efficiency with regards to tumor growth, Epstein-Barr virus
and suppressed immune response.The amounts of phytochemicals found in Nopal
make it a highly desirable and sought after commodity nearly MI species of
cacti make nopal a highly desirable and sought after commodity. Researchers
have proven that phytochemicals inhibit cancer growth and may prevent cancer
from developing. it is even considered the backbone of whole-food cancer
prevention. The cactus contains many of these phytochemicals in quantities
greater than many other more traditional plant foods.
Help Obesity with 18 Amino Acids
DESERT BLOOM 's 18 amino
acids, 8 of which are essential and must be ingested as food, provide you with
more energy and less fatigue by helping the body lower blood sugar; elevate
mood and suppress appetite, while providing valuable food nutrients.
Fat build up is prevented, while fat break down and excretion is
increased. Nopal's vegetable protein helps the body pull fluids from the
tissues back into the bloodstream thereby diminishing cellulite and fluid
Help Digestion / liver function
DESERT BLOOM 's naturally
available vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, minerals: Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium,
Potassium, Iron, and Fibres in Lignin, Cellulose, Hemicellulose, Pectin,
Mucilages, and Gum form along with the 18 amino acids help to detoxify and
support not only the liver but also the body in general. Ammonia, free radicals
and environmental toxins such as alcohol and cigarette smoke, which all
suppress the immune system, are removed by Nopal. Nopal also aids in balancing
and calming the nervous system, which benefits the body's overall function.
Strengthens the Urinary System
The juice of nopal is widely used
in Mexico as an anti-inflammatory diuretic. Where there is pain on urination,
with a continuing dull ache in the urethra and bladder well after completion,
the juice can be taken to decrease the pain.
SOME OTHER BENEFITS OF THE NOPAL PLANT
Vegetarian Food Combining
Nopal's 18 amino acids, fibers, vitamins and minerals address the needs of a
Nopal contains both soluble and insoluble dietary fibers. The insoluble dietary
fiber in Nopal (more commonly known as roughage), absorbs water and gently
hastens food through the digestive track and contributes to regular bowel
movements. In addition the presence of insoluble fibers in the colon helps
dilute the concentration of potential carcinogens that may be present. Soluble
fibres also contribute to regularity. Nopal is a gentle alternative to psyllium
for those with a sensitivity or allergy to psyllium.
The effects of the amino acids and fiber, including the anti-oxidant of Nopal's
vitamin C and A (B-carotene) prevent the likelihood of blood vessel wall damage
and the formation of fatty plaques.
Gastric Ulcers / Gastrointestinal Disorders
Nopal vegetable fibers and mucilages control excess gastric acid production and
protect the Gastrointestial mucosa. This pH buffering and coating has been
studied for the prevention of damages that may occur from ingesting spicy
foods, aspirin and other NSAIDs.
