Keeping our immune system at a level where we form a virtual shield around us to keep the harmful culprits from penetrating is vital. It is becoming clearer every day that one of the major maladies causing us pain and suffering in so many varying ways is Inflammation. Thousands of people suffer from the painful effects of inflammation on a daily basis, many being unaware that help and relief is available to them.
When it comes right down to it, good health is everything. Without it, the smallest task can be incredibly difficult. But when we can maintain our good health, it’s almost as though no obstacle is too high to prevent us from finding our wellness goals and, subsequently, our life’s purpose.
It is critical that we consume natural foods containing antioxidant properties… A rare and extremely potent class of antioxidants called Betalains can be found in the Nopal Cactus of the Sonoran Desert. These betalains are somewhat rare and very powerful. Their location plays a large role in their incredible antioxidant powers.
It is due to the extreme hot and cold weather conditions in this desert which this plant must withstand that these powerful betalains are created. Sonoran Desert weather conditions are among the coldest and hottest on the globe. These betalains must necessarily become like a Super-Antioxidant by their very nature in order to survive. When we consume betalains from the Nopal Cactus, and specifically, the Nopalea Juice, it is this same type of powerful immunity to the elements that is, in a sense, paralleled in our bodies, giving us the ability to fight disease and sicknesses often represented by symptoms such as inflammation.
A safe and efficient way of harnessing these betalains, without losing any of their potent medicinal properties has been established, creating a wholesome, powerful, and tasty drink, scientifically proven to defend and boost the immune system and generally improve overall health.
Betalains are the pigments giving the Nopal Cactus fruit its bright, vibrant pink color. They are also natural antioxidants only found in very few of the world’s plants. And the fruit of the Nopal Cactus is the leader of this group, containing one of the highest amount of betalains in nature.
When these betalains enter the human body, they begin to restore vitality on a cellular level. They help the body reduce any toxins surrounding the cells. This enables essential nutrients to reach each cell. These betalains can reduce the inflammation in our bodies; inflammation which has now been proven to lead to disease.
Benefits of Betalains
Betalains have been scientifically proven to:
* Reduce the risk of blood clots protecting the thin lining of blood vessels; this helps reduce the inflammation that makes blood sticky and leads to clots.
* Reduce bad cholesterol. Betalains strongly reduce oxidized LDL cholesterol.
* Protect cells from toxins. Betalains protect many types of cells, especially brain cells, from toxins known to trigger tumors.
* Protect the liver. Betalains provide significant protection from toxins that directly affect your liver.
They detoxify our body from the toxins in our air, water and food; they and other anti-toxic ingredients serve to combat these poisons where they strike us first: right inside the trillions of cells in our bodies.
By increasing the activity of CYP-2E1, a special enzyme that neutralizes daily toxins, betalains protect our cells and vital organs; especially our liver, against the carcinogens, hormone disruptors, respiratory toxins, developmental toxins and neurotoxins that are responsible for one-quarter of all the world’s diseases.
Reducing inflammation as toxins assault our system and also when infection sets in subsequent to an injury, is important in our attempt to ward off further complications. Inflammation is a bodily response to these occurrences. If we allow inflammation to go unchecked, it can lead to a wide variety of disorders, from stroke to arthritis to heart disease. Medical experts throughout the world are finally recognizing the health dangers posed by inflammation.
It is desireable that we specifically target signs of inflammation in the body and reduce them quickly. Ingesting betalains and other anti-inflammatory ingredients work directly on the fluid surrounding your cells. There, they draw off the toxins and excess water to reduce inflammation and rebalance the cellular environment.
Betalains also protect against premature aging. Our skin keeps out many of the pollutants, toxins, radiation and other damaging influences on our body and its vital organs. One of the first signs of aging is thin, sagging, withered skin that is easily damaged. We need antioxidants and betalains to shore up our protective layer. They can fill in the gaps of our cells (including the cells in our skin) and return them to the firm, robust nature of young cells – at any age. By providing a healthy environment for the cell, betalains keep it from withering.
Needless to say, I am a strong proponent of all antioxidants, particularly, super-antioxidants such as are found in this wonder of nature from the Sonoran Desert.
