In a healthy immune system, the normal inflammatory response repairs damage and protects the body. Sometimes, though, our body doesn’t respond as it should, sending the inflammatory response into overdrive. Stay ahead of the curve by supporting your immune system and supporting your body's healthy inflammation response.
The nutrient-rich drink from the Sonoran Desert
From ancient traditions to modern science. Nopalea supports the normal and essential anti-inflammatory function performed by the immune system and may help lower inflammation.1
The Superfruit of the prickly pear (nopal) cactus, contains a powerful class of nutrients called Betalains.
What are Betalains?
Betalains are plant-based compounds that have antioxidant properties and give the prickly pear fruit its distinctive bright red color.
The prickly pear cactus of the Sonoran Desert contains a high concentration of protein-bound Betalains. This is because the Sonoran Desert is the most extreme desert in the world and this plant needs Betalains to survive in the intense environment.
How about you? Are you exposed to toxins from outside and inside your body? Perhaps Betalains—these nutrients from the Sonoran Desert—can help you experience greater wellness.
Nopalea: bounty from the Sonoran Desert
TriVita has a tradition of developing innovative wellness products, with ingredients from all over the world. Yet right in our own Arizona backyard, we found that native plants in the Sonoran Desert offer beneficial properties. We tapped the expertise of local botanists and the indigenous peoples to focus ultimately on the remarkable prickly pear cactus and its fruit.
Nopalea: quality-crafted by experts
Nopalea customers enjoy so many aspects of this unique drink: the taste, color and certainly its health benefits. But what many don't know is the care that goes into ensuring absolute product quality in each bottle.
- Aseptic manufacturing process — After each Nopal cactus fruit is harvested (by hand, not by machine) it is puréed into a liquid and transported in a refrigerated truck to our bottling plant in California. The aseptic (sterile) manufacturing process begins the moment the product enters the front door.
- Rigorous inspection — During the formulation and bottling process, the entire 'run' of Nopalea is inspected. It often takes at least five hours to test each batch of Nopalea.
- Freshness guaranteed — You can rest assured that your Nopalea is fresh. To maximize Nopalea's Betalain content and freshness, TriVita maintains refrigeration from picking in the field to final aseptic processing. The proprietary bottling process used with Nopalea is untouched by human hands.
