Nopalea Juice Reviews

Should you view television late at evening, you have probably viewed the informercial for Nopalea (pronounced no-pah-lay-uh). Until I saw it myself recently, I had never learned of Nopalea.
 The statements were striking, also I envision that a lot of folks living with chronic joint discomfort or arthritis would likely need to know more regarding the item after hearing the promises. I have done some digging of my own, personal, and here's what I discovered.

Nopalea Described
Nopalea is a "wellness beverage" which is produced and marketed by TriVita. The beverage is derived from the fruit of the Nopal cactus (Opuntia Ficus Indica), the prickly pear.

According to the maker's web site, the Nopal cactus fruit has a group of anti-oxidants known as bioflavonoids (also called flavonoids).
 More especially, the site says, "Study unveiled that the Nopal cactus fruit has anti inflammatory and antioxidant properties, due to a class of rare and powerful nutrients called bioflavonoids. Flavonoids are in the family, which were shown to protect against inflammation associated with free radicals (unstable molecules in the body). Nopal cactus fruit is a rich source of quercetin."

The informercial promises "The Nopal fruit is scientifically proven to contain an intensely cogent category of anti-oxidants known as betalains, bringing a wide variety of gains." It says that betalains are rare and generally lacking from our diets.

Claims for Potential Benefits
The maker promises that Nopalea may reduce pain associated with redness; enhance joint wellness; relieve puffiness in muscles; and safeguard the wellness of the body's cells. It promises to neutralize the body's inner toxins, and also promises to be the natural solution to redness.

Here's how Nopalea is said to work: when the beverage is ingested, bioflavonoids "permeate the physique." Flavonoids subsequently "method unhealthy cells and empty out the toxic waste." The human anatomy turns unhealthy cells into healthy cells, and macrophages search for and engulf dead cells. Flavonoids encircle remaining cells and protect them.

Keith Moon and Autism

I keep reading stories that Keith Moon may have been borderline autistic/aspergers, and that it was probable The Who's rock opera Tommy was based on him. Could be false information, but if you watch videos of Keith you'll notice two things: one, he was absolutely fueled by a different thought process than any other musician out there and was, at times, akin to Animal from Jim Henson's The Muppets, and two, he was a genius on the drums. One minute he's barely touching them, dangling a drumstick from his fingers like it was unbearable to touch, and the next he's beating the holy living shit out of his kit. If the claims are true—and who would know as he's long gone from this earth?—then I think it's interesting and wonderful. People who have autism and aspergers are brilliant people. They're often very talented, witty, loving, yet their flaw is not being able to connect to the world, or process the world like everyone else. It's an issue of the senses. I think the day is coming when everyone will see how cool these folks are. In other Who news, Roger Daltrey is coming to town in the fall to perform Tommy and I'd love to go but finances most likely will prevent that from happening. That's okay. I got the record. This is early Who here, and a very young Keith Moon. It doesn't even scratch his brilliance, but it does show some of the stick holding behavior I mentioned earlier. This is such a genius of a song. And Townshend's jacket kicks.
