To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First, let me say that I am in the camp who are not thrilled with the taste. It isn't nasty, just earthy and almost like drinking pureed okra. The powder is unbelievably fine and once wet becomes like grout. My routine is to put a tablespoon with water in my small Magic Bullet® bender and make a 'smoothie'. Goes down quick and then the magic begins! The pandemic caused me to gain about 20# and so back onto Keto I went as that diet just works for me. The problem with Keto is constipation--well, that problem is no more. What is great about Nopal is that it just enforces regularity; i.e., no sudden laxative effect or gas.
This stuff is vastly superior to Metamucil® (psyllium) because it is not only a superior fiber source, but it has superfood qualities (ancient tribes weren't stupid).
Taste bad. I mixed it with bannanna, mixed berries, chia seeds,flax seeds, and 8ounces of water. Made it taste way better. Great breakfast drink and it took my blood sugars down. type two diabetes my sugars are dropping. Nothing else seemed to work. I'm thankful. It's a blessing to me. I finally have some relief.
I have used Nopal off and on for years in smoothies, with juices and in soups etc... when I use it, it supplies my body with needed fiber, calcium and enzymes and appears to regulate my blood sugar and weight management. I really like Nopal!
At first, I didn't know what to expect about this product. Began using it because of a medical recommendation to control glucose level for pre-diabetes condition. I add it as an ingredient of my smoothies. It worked according to my glucometer. Because its offered at a reasonable lower price, I will keep ordering it.
