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've been using this product for about 1 week now and I have definitely felt the difference in my stomach. I don't feel as bloated and because of the high fiber I'm not tempted to overeat or snack. When you drink it just with water, it does have an earthy taste but it's not bad.
I dont like the taste, I try to hide the taste by putting it in my protein shakes I honestly have not been drinking it regularly enough to notice any improvements. I love the red cactus juice. The taste is too earthy for me. Sorry this isn't a very helpful review.
This first one I received was damaged, it was replaced promptly. Finally got to try the new one and its hard to get past the taste and smell! I've tried to hide it in a variety of drinks and can't figure out how to get it down.
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!
