Exposure to toxins, bacteria and other chemicals in foods and the atmosphere can all create inflammation in the body. This inflammation is how the body responds to healing of infections and other ailments caused by the exposure to chemicals and toxins. It is the body’s defense mechanism to produce immunity and fight injury. However, as much as inflammation defends and fights for the body, if the body continues to produce inflammation without the ability to turn it off, it becomes chronic and begins to wreak havoc. Chronic inflammation has been pinpointed as the cause of many illnesses and diseases such as arthritis, chronic pain, heart diseases and even cancer.
People who experience chronic inflammation must strive to quell it by eating foods packed with antioxidants. Consumption of Betalains, one of the richest sources of antioxidants detoxifies the body and reduces inflammation in the body.
Betalains are not very common and can only be found in very few plants all over the world. However, the fruit of the Nopal cactus plant found in deserts is one the richest source of this super antioxidant. It is this fruit that is used in making the Nopalea juice.
The Betalains in Nopalea juice goes straight into cells of the body when drank, and begins to remove toxins around the cells, so the cells are strengthened to start the process of repairing damaged tissues and reducing inflammation, to keep it from being chronic. The Nopalea juice packed with Betalains, has been proven to relieve lots of ailments such as chronic pain, swollen joints and arthritis, all of which stems from chronic inflammation.
