Does Nopalina really works to lose weight?
I am using nopalina linaza plus to lose weight. I am 131 pounds, 5'1. I have to lose weight around my stomach and hips. I take 2 spoons in 4 ounces of water or juice twice a day. Can I lose weight using Nopalina?

Hello Tinkerbell , I had a hard time in the beginning too . for me the best is mixing it in oatmeal. You can use low fat milk or lactaid milk. Nopalina helps you digestive system on a normal . I love it .

Hi ! I have been taking Nopalina for about 2 months now with a break between both months,it has worked for me,it has maintained my weight but I need to excercise and really watch what I eat,if I did that I know I would loose alot.It does help me with BM at least twicw a day and I do pee alot which is wonderful since I do suffer from constipation.I also noticed my face is clearer and more energy and better moods.oh and my belly is so much flatter I use to be asked all the time if I was pregnant.Haven't been asked that.I am so much happier.

I work for a physician and he did prescribe me phentermine and it definitely worked.  Our company was purchased by a larger company and we had to take a drug screen it does test positive for methenphetamine.  If you have a prescription then you have no problem, if you are buying them on the internet you might have a problem.  Just a kind warning, it scared me to death and I have not taken them since, that was over a year ago.

Dose: From 400 to 800 milligrams a day in pill form, taken on an empty stomach with water, often at bedtime. Or two cups of tea daily, made with two grams of the herb per cup. The herb should not be used for more than seven to 10 days.
Precautions: Cascara sagrada can cause cramps and diarrhea. Taking the herb for more than two weeks can damage the intestines and lead to dehydration, potassium deficiency, muscle weakness and heart arrhythmias. The herb should not be taken with licorice root or steroids, which can lower potassium levels. People who are dehydrated or suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease or colitis should avoid the herb. Fresh cascara can cause intestinal spasms and bloody diarrhea.
Research: Human studies have shown that cascara sagrada is an effective laxative. Results from some research suggest a few of the bark's components may have antiviral and antibacterial properties, but these have not been confirmed.
Dietary supplement makers are not required by the U.S. government to demonstrate that their products are safe or effective. Ask your healthcare provider for advice on selecting a brand.

I started taking Nopalina Flax Seed Plus formula today. I mostly just feel nauseous, not sure what to make of that. I am taking it for weight loss, but will it harm me to take this even though I use the restroom regularly (1-2x a day or more)?

Any advice please?? Thanks (:

I started taking Napolina since yesterday 3/12/2013. I am drinking it twice a day. Morning and before I go to sleep. I am mixing it with juice. Drinking 4oz. I am yet to go to the bathroom but I am also drinking lots of water. I have noticed improvement in my energy levels and diminished hunger. I am looking to loose approximately 25-30 lbs. I am 4'11. Not sure what my current weight is... I am thinking I'm about 140. I will keep all posted! Good luck to all :)

Hello Community:  I started taking the Nopalina pills because my mother eats the Nopalina flax seeds on her oatmeal every morning and she has no trouble with it.  I however am having some problems.  I took it for about a month and then I noticed rectal bleeding for about 2 days. I was fully examined by my doctor with a scope and everything and he could find no reason for the bleeding. I stopped taking the Nopalina.  It has been about a month with no bleeding and feeling fine, so I started Nopalina again. I have been taking the Nopalina now for about a week.   Well today I have blood in my stool again.  I do not know if it is hemorrhoids, or if it is internal bleeding, I feel absolutely fine - last time this happened the doc checked me out and he found nothing.. so it must be the Nopalina. I don't take too much of it.  I take two Nopalina pills a day.  You must be very careful with this.  I will be doing my research.  I will let you know.  Be Careful.  Theresa

Some have used and say it worked. I started using it with diet and exercise of course. I usually blended it so I won't taste all the fibers into my lemon water.  I will post my results within three days for any pros  and cons. Remember in order to lose weight it's 80% diet and 20% exercise. So cut off all the fritos, cut out carbs, and eat lots of green.

Hi, I started taking Nopalina on Monday and was scarred because I suffer from acid reflux and my upper tummy was always bloated and felt prego.. since I have been taking nopalina my acid reflux is no longer there and the bloated upper portion is all gone yay I take 2 teaspoons full with soy milk in the morning and drink lots of water.  I will continue to take it guess its a true fact that it helps your intestines.  I do number  2 often and I believe this is where the weight loss will come in because its detoxifies your body and loosens all that crap in your intestinal walls.  Good luck everyone I believe we are in the verge of a break through lol omg YEZZZZ HEB started selling Noplaina in big bags just saw the stands this morning in san Antonio, TX.

Hope you are drinking lots of water (at least 8 8oz glasses per day). That's likely what is causing everyone to pee so much. Lack of enough water may be what's making you cramp.

You know, all these things to lose weight all have pros and cons.  I myself would like to lose a few pounds, but the safest way is to walk and eat healthy.  It takes time but at least you won't mess up your system.  I didn't hear good things about Alli either.  Good Luck!

hello everyone,
I started Napolina a week ago not to help with bowel movements rather to help with some weight loss and to add the omegas, I add it to my morning juice which is dark leafy greens, carrots, apple, lemon, blueberries, I follow the instructions of allowing it to set for a while in the fridge while I do my morning workout. I feel first it tastes great, I already had a good morning bowel movement now I have 2-3 a day and feel great no cramping or discomfort, after I feel energized so that is good, I do notice I am not hungry for a long time, I also add Chia seeds to my morning juice so that might be it lol .. I have lost 3#s in a week, my stomach is not as bloated and I feel energized. personally I feel its a great additive to a healthy diet, I am a nutritionist, I already consume healthy food and drink a lot of water, I do not do soda much less add sugar to food, even my ice tea and herbal teas are unsweetened. I started adding napolina as a few of my clients were asking me about it, so I checked out the product there are good ingredients, as I suggest to them consumption of a healthy organic diet 90% of the time will give your body the health benefits it needs, then if you have that 10% of items that are not as healthy occasionally your fine,  stay hydrated, and get plenty of rest... for myself I will only use this product till I drop the 10 # I was after.. then I will continue with my regular life regiment its all about balance and lifestyle do what you know you will do for life not just for a short time.. to your health..

I been taking nopalina about a week now..I take 1 tbsp every morning with any 8 oz drink but preferably with a shake or milk I let it sit about 5- 10 min
and then I take the same amount before bed. It works really good and I'm happy that now I get to go to the RR on a regular basis which before I wasn't able to..also just a few days ago I noticed I get very hungry but  when I eat
half way thru my portion of the meal I lose my appetite and that's never ever happened to me I also don't get hungry in between meals..I've lost 3 pounds this week and hopefully more to loose.

I am at the end of 2 weeks with using Nopalina.  I use 1&1/2 tablespoon of flax seed plus fiber in 8 ounces of water and drink in straight down.  When I started I weighed 315 pounds (6'2").  I weighed myself this morning on my electronic scales (they give an error code for over 300 pounds).  I weighed in at 289 pounds.  That is a loss of 21 pounds in 14 days!  I have had no adverse effects.  I cannot exercise due to multiple joint replacements and other physical issues.
I have tried over 12 different diets and never lost this much weight.  I just had my annual physical.  My doctor said “If it works with no adverse effects, go for it.”  My blood pressure is down.  My liver and kidney functions are returning to normal.  Needless to say, I am a huge fan of Nopalina.
