The pancreas is an oblong flattened gland located deep in the abdomen between the stomach and the spine. This gland is an integral part of the digestive system that often goes unnoticed until problems occur. The endocrine (endo= within) cells of the pancreas produce and secrete hormones and insulin into the bloodstream. The insulin and hormones work together to maintain proper levels of sugar in the blood. Diabetes is at its highest in Americans right now, because the more processed food we eat, the more problems with the pancreas will have. The number of people consuming synthetic insulin is alarming and consequently, they are suffering from insulin’s serious side effects!

Nopal has been shown to normalize and maintain healthy blood sugar levels by enhancing the body’s sensitivity to insulin and stimulating pancreatic production of insulin. It is also beneficial for healthy gastrointestinal function due to its great supply of mucilage, lignin, pectin, and other vegetable fiber, which aid in neutralizing hyperacidity and protecting mucous membranes along the colon and gastrointestinal tract. These soluble and insoluble vegetable fibers also help absorb toxins from the bowel, give bulk to the stool, and reduce bowel transit time. Nopal is a healthy alternative for those unable to take psyllium.

coats and soothes mucous membranes while also absorbing toxins which can cause intestinal imbalance. Slippery Elm is also very effective in soothing sore throats, coughs and respiratory problems such as bronchitis and asthma. It also provides a protective coating for the colon wall.
