HealthForce Superfoods Nopal Blood Sugar™ Description

  • Genuine Opuntia Streptacantha Species
  • 100% TruGanic™
  • Nutritionally Supports:
    • Blood Sugar • Insulin
    • Cholesterol • Bowel and Immune System Functions
    • Timed Release of Nutrients

Background Information: Nopal Cactus has been used for thousands of years by Mexican natives, both as a food and for enhanced health and vitality. HealthForce Nutritionals Nopal is the authentic Opuntia streptacantha species (which is the only species that has shown such significant benefits). This organic cactus is dried at low temperatures to preserve enzymes and heat sensitive elements. Our Nopal Cactus is highly nutritious, and contains a unique phytonutrient, vitamin and mineral profile that contributes to its beneficial effects. This profile includes support for the immune system and a moderated balance of blood sugar. It is also high in bulk forming mucilaginous fiber that assists most foods, herbs, and supplements taken with it to be gently and naturally timed released into the blood stream. This includes the timed release of sugars into the blood stream to support healthy blood sugar and insulin functions. Will also timed release other foods/herbs into the blood stream, including unhealthful foods. Timed releasing less than optimally healthful foods into the blood stream will allow the body to deal with the resultant toxicity with less difficulty.


Suggested Usage: Take 3-6 VeganCaps upon arising and 3-6 VeganCaps per meal/snack. VeganCaps can be opened and mixed up into sweet drinks/smoothies for maximum effects (Nopal powder is bitter; do not mix in so many caps that your drink/smoothie becomes unpalatable). Intensive Usage: Take 6 VeganCaps upon arising and 6 with each meal/snack.


Suggested Adjuncts: Vitamineral Earth™ with Actual Food Chromium™; Cinnamon; a whole food, organic raw foods; a high fiber diet (only whole plant foods have fiber); Vitamineral Green™, a unique and extremely nutrient dense superfood complex for comprehensive nutritional support and cleansing; Liver Rescue™; exercise (try rebounding); fresh air (house plants clean the air).

Why You Should Pay Attention to Blood Sugar Levels (Even if You Don't Have Diabetes)

Unless you have diabetes -- or are at risk of developing it -- you probably don't think about your blood sugar levels too much. But new research suggests that maybe you should.

People who do not have diabetes still can experience big swings in their blood sugar levels after eating, according to a study recently published in the journal PLOS Biology.

Researchers involved with the study say such findings raise concerns because rapid rises in blood sugar levels are associated with increased risk of heart attack and stroke.

The new study is a reminder that even if you are not diabetic, it's important to be mindful of things that influence your blood sugar levels, says Angela Lemond, a Plano, Texas-based registered dietitian nutritionist and founder of Lemond Nutrition.

"At the end of the day, if we aren't mindful, then technically we are at risk," says Lemond, who is also a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Foods that spike your blood sugar levels

Foods that are sugary and low in fiber are more likely to cause your blood sugar levels to rise, Lemond says. These include:

  • Cakes and bakery items
  • Candy
  • Sugary cereals
  • Desserts
  • Low-fiber crackers

Even some foods that appear good on the surface can cause your blood sugar levels to rise. Examples include sugary yogurts and smoothies.

Sugary drinks also are bad for your blood sugar levels. Examples include:

  • Soda
  • Fruit punch and fruit drinks
  • Sports drinks
  • Energy drinks
  • Sweet tea

Juices -- "even some 'green juices' that might have lots of vitamins and minerals" – also can spike blood-sugar levels, Lemond says.

Foods that keep your blood sugar levels under control

By contrast, foods that are rich in fiber and low in added sugar help keep your blood sugar levels in check. Examples include:

Lemond says how you eat makes a difference in how well you maintain healthful blood sugar levels.

"Eat regularly -- avoid going greater than four hours without eating to avoid eating too much at meals," she says.

She also suggests adding extra-lean protein and healthy fats to each snack or meal. This will help slow the breakdown of food and leave you feeling more satisfied.

More natural ways to keep blood sugar in check

In addition to eating right, you can take other steps to keep your blood sugar levels in check. For example, simple and regular movement can help.

"I'm not talking about a major workout like hitting the gym or going for a run," Lemond says. "It could be as simple as every hour, standing and walking around for five minutes."

She says sticking to such a schedule is vital in a world where so many of us sit at a desk to work for eight hours or more on most days.

"We must break up our sit time during the day, and then go for a nice walk in the evening after dinner," she says. Such walking is a "simple, easy and impactful" way to maintain the right blood sugar levels, she says.

Of course, regular exercise is even better for your blood sugar levels. It helps increase your body's sensitivity to insulin, improving the ability of muscle cells to use insulin to take up glucose, according to the American Diabetes Association. When cells absorb glucose, they use it as energy.

Finally, keeping a healthy body weight can also keep your blood sugar levels in check. Being overweight increases your odds of developing insulin resistance. One recent study supported by the National Institutes of Health found that a 7 percent weight loss can reduce the odds of developing diabetes by 58 percent.
