Nopalina has gained popularity for being an excellent dietary supplement that effectively contributes to weight loss and as well as offering other health benefits such as improving circulation and regulating bowel movements.
But, what exactly is Nopalina?
Simple. It’s a formula invented by Dr. Hector Pablo Oliva (an allopathic doctor with specializations in acupuncture and natural herbs), composed of:
- Canadian Linseed
Canada is the world’s leader in linseed production and export so it makes sense to use it as part of Nopalina’s unique recipe. It’s incredibly rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 which are essential fatty acids and unsaturated healthy fats that are ridiculously good for you. It has also been known to prevent a number of medical problems such as depression, cardiovascular disease, brain dysfunction, asthma and arthritis.
Also known simply as flax or linseed, it’s getting the reputation of being a superfood. They contain lignans (a group of nutrients which have powerful antioxidant and estrogen properties), a healthy amount of protein, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, as well as vitamins and minerals.
