Nopalina information

My friend just told me about a natural dietary supplement that seem to be giving a lot of positive results called nopalina/linaza plus. Just wanted to know if anyone tried this product and had any positive or negative results. It seems to be very organic and produced in Canada. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I just told my sister about it and she went out and brought it for me and got one for herself as well.

My Pediatrician had mentioned it to a parent that brings her kid to the same DayCare as mine. She lost 15lbs in a month. She told my provider about it and she in turn mentioned it to me. This was 7/24/06 she has a bag and started 7/25 I'll start on Friday. Will keep you posted. Starting weight 214lb :-)

Hello, I have been looking myself on the internet trying to find out about Nopalina. My mother-in-law gave me a bag saying it is the biggest thing in her home town of Lake Jackson, Texas. I must say that on the first day I could tell a difference in my appetite. I did'nt crave sweets at all. I seemed to feel full and never hungry. I need to lose about 85 lbs. and I hope this will help me. I'm not fond of using drugs, shots or surgery. I will keep you posted! Today was day 1.

I have heard from friends that it does work and one of my friends was taking it twice a day and she was losing weight she stopped taking it twice because she didn't want to loose weight she was just taking it because its good for other stuff.

Today is my second day of Nopalina. Again, it has curbed my appetite. I feel more regular as well. I don't have the sugar rushes that I normally craved. If you look up all of the ingredients up on the web, you will find that each one has a medical purpose. I'll keep you posted!

Hi everyone. I read all your comments on Nopalina. I'll start taking it tomorrow and I'll keep you updated about the results. I would like to lose 10 pounds but really I don't know wether to take it twice or just one time a day. Does anyone have information on how many times a person should take it in order to lose a few pounds? I really would like to get rid of cellulite and excess fluid as quickly as possible. I'm 22 and this is my first time posting a comment. Have a great day everybody.

Hi! I wish everyone well on Nopalina. I have been off of it for a few days, well almost a week. I took an antibiotic for a sore throat and before I knew it I had a bad yeast infection and my feet were swollen. Almost like a sunburn. Never experienced it before. I don't think the Nopalina had anything to do with it alone. I think the combo of the two did. I read on the antibiotic label not to take with antacids or stomache meds. I have been feeling better and the symptoms are going away. Just to let everyone know. Good luck, I will continue again on Thursday.

Hmm..hi everyone. Well I don't know if you have experienced this before but it's been 6 days since I am taking nopalina and I have lost like two pounds already. I don't have cravings and I don't feel hungry. I usually eat 5 times a day but like yesterday I ate 4 times because I did not feel the need to eat. I think I'm doing good so far. The only thing is that I really don't know if it's normal to go to the bathroom a lot and not necesarily to urinate. I have to go a lot. I think I'll try taking it one time only instead of taking it twice. Has any of you or your friends experienced that with Nopalina? It says on the label that a person should not take it if they have diarrhea and that is my case whenever I take it and then have any of my regular meals. Am I doing something wrong?

Good luck with your treatment and with your diet. I also need to lose pounds so I guess we are on the same page. I weight 136 but I'm 5'3. I'm a short girl LOL. I would like to go down to 125 but I tend to gain weight faster than the speed of light so I really need motivation to stick to something that's going to help me reach my goals. Have a nice day.

Yesterday my mother said to me that I looked thinner and so did my boyfriend. I think that nopalina is an awesome and risk-free way to lose weight. I have lost 3 pounds so far and I feel very good. It really does a good job at suppressing my appetite so I don't eat as much. Good luck to everyone.

Hi all. I had a baby 8 months ago & I'm packing the lbs!! Heard about napolina from 2 family members last week. My aunt's co-worker lost 35 lbs in 5 weeks w/ it w/out excercising or dieting. I started it 5 days ago. At 4 days I had lost 1 lb. I feel myself loosing inches from the way my clothes fit now. I also had a family member notice how my pants were looser on me just 2 days after using napolina.I've recommended it to my friends and we're now in this together. I'll keep you posted on the results. Best of luck to all users!!!!!

don't worry about the diarreah (diarrhea). It's part of the cleansing. Don't give up. Continue using. This is all natural & offers a lot of benefits, not just weight loss.

Hi liketbskinny. Thank you for your advice. Trust me I will not give up. I'm losing pounds and that is all that matters to me as long as I take a healthy supplement like nopalina. I thought I was the only one with the diarrhea LOL but now I'm not concerned anymore. I told one of my friends about it and she'll buy it. She wanted to buy herbal light pills but I don't trust pills because once you stop taking them you gain back some extra pounds. I like nopalina. I think it is safe and worthy of buying. I also know this lady who took Nopalina and she lost 15 pounds in a month...no diet or exercise. These experiences and the ones I read from you guys are the ones that keep me motivated. I find it hard to take it with water so I use milk. I'll keep you posted. Good luck to all of you.

Hello again guys. Well, I've decided to wait a few days til I weigh myself again. I'm thinking of doing so Sunday morning. I'll keep you guys posted. In the interim, I'm still taking my 2 spoons w/ orange juice 2x a day. Snowfairy.. does it taste ok w/ milk? I was taking my 1st glass mid afternoon & 2nd after dinner. I've switched it to taking 1st glass before breakfast & 2nd before bedtime. Does anyone have or know a better suggestion? Keep me posted guys and best of luck to us all!! By the way, my goal is 38 lbs.

It doesn't taste so good but with milk is way better than with plain water(at least to me). With the water I find it hard to swallow. Nopalina dissolves better and faster in milk and since I loooove milk then I guess it works for me. My friend takes it with orange juice b/c she doesn't like milk that much. I guess trying nopalina with milk, water or juice depends on the person's preferences and taste. Hey, like2bskinny, I think that's the best thing you could do. Do not weigh yourself everyday because then you'll get frustrated. I used to do that and trust me, it's a pain coz the scale will not give you the same number every time. Sometimes it gives you a greater number and sometimes it gives you a smaller one. LOL I used to get really upset. I'm doing the same thing you are doing with my two table spoons in the morning and then at night. It is actually working. I'm losing and everybody is noticing. I'll keep you posted. Have a great day everybody.

Hi again guys. I'm here to post a question to help a friend. I'll try to do so w/out getting too graphic, lol. She asked me what color my stool was cause she's a bit concerned w/ hers. My stool color all along is brown, light brown. She just told me her stool was green and she's concerned about something being wrong. Since we're all here to help each other w/ our personal experience w/ this product, please share your comments on your stool color w/out being too graphic for information sake only. She's taking her linaza w/ water. Perhaps this is the reason why it may be green? I'm not sure and that's why I'm asking you guys.Pls share your knowledge and opinions. Thanks

When I was taking it with water my stool was coming out green. If she eats green vegetables then that could also be a cause of her stool color. Tell her to try something else so she can see for herself that if she takes it with milk perhaps it'll come out different. She needs to remember that we are all different and the way our bodies digest foods is also different. Maybe that color means that nopalina is acting as a cleanser and that is a good sign. I would worry if the stool was bloody or something like that.

Hi all! I have been getting Nopalina from a little market in Lake Jackson, Tx. I get it for $10.00 a bag. My sister lives in the valley in Texas near the border and cannot find it anywhere. Is anybody ordering it off of the internet? If so, what company is selling it? My mom lives in Corpus Christi and cannot find it as well. Thanks for the tips!

Thanks for your response snowfairy. She appreciates the input. She had a headache yesterday and the green stool was concerning her. I've noticed that we're the only ones who keep posting comments. Has everyone else stopped using the product? If you're reading this, please comment on your experience. It may shed some light on all others using this product. One of my friends and I are getting a bit discouraged. I guess that after knowing someone else lost 35 lbs in 5 wks, you tend to think ...or better said (hope) your experience may not be exactly the same, but somewhat similar. I'm planning on going to the gym to do cardio for 1 hr for 1 week and see if that'll speed up my results. Tomorrow will be 1 wk using Napolina and all I've lost in 1 lb. I truly expected to loose more going (sooo many times) to the little girls room,lol.I get my Napolina at a store near buy, haven't purchased it online.

Don't be discouraged mama. Look I recently bought Mederma which is an awesome product that treats stretch marks and scars. A lot of people have used it and have had fabulous results. When I put the crem the second day it burnt my skin. I was itching and my skin was red and extremely sensitive. My point is that what works for somebody might not exactly work for you and me, at least not the same way. If I were you I'd wait a little bit more. Keep taking it. Do what you're planning on doing. Go to the gym. I go everyday for two hours and I'm having results. I think Nopalina is great when it comes to suppressing your appetite and therefore you don't eat as much and that's when you lose weight. Perhaps your body was taking that process as a threat and does not want to let go and it's keeping everything for "survival". Right now I'm on the same page your are but because it is that time of the month LOL. Anyways..don't give up just because you are stuck ok? Try to work out...running has helped me a lot you know. Keep me posted :)

Ok guys, today was the 1 week weigh in. I am so upset!!! Accordinf to the scale, I've GAINED 2 lbs. Can you believe this??? My husband says I haven't been eating right. Although I've stayed away from fast foods and sodas and just ate what I had at home, he says I still had way too many meals w/ carbs and not enough protein. He also believes that w/out excersicing, there's no way this will work. It make no sense to me that I gained weight though. I understand if I would've just stayed at the same weight I started with, but after 4 days I had lost 1 lb, and now I have gained 2? I gained the 1 lb I had lost + 1 more. It's not a good day. This is the biggest I've ever been. I'm 5'4 and my "normal weight is 115-120. This was my 2nd pregnancy & I ended up weighing the same as the 1st, 162. I'm very discouraged. I was 140 1 month after having the baby and on my own I've gained 19 lbs. Now, it seems impossible to loose all this weight. I'm going to try and prove to myself this thing works and start the excersing tomorrow morning for 1 week. After my 1st pregnancy I worked out everyday in the mornings and went down to 108 lbs.I will keep you guys posted.

Maybe you are like most people (including me) My weight fluctuates between 135 and 139.5. Now..that does not mean I have necessarily gained weight. It's just normal to go up and down. I, too, get very upset and sad when I do the weigh in and I see 139.5 or 138 because I work out sooo much (5 to 6 days a week for two ours sometimes more) that it seems to me that all my efforts are in vane. However, we have to take into account that us women experience water retention almost all the time, even the skinny ones do. If you think you need to change your diet then do it. Eat more protein than carbs. Maybe that is what your body needs and it is telling you so. I'm the type of person who finds it almost impossible to lose weight. I got to the point where I was at 180 and I'm only 5'3. It's taken dedication, pain, depression, anger, sweat, tears and much more to get to where I am. I'm not being dramatic LOL. That's just how it is and I believe a lot of ppl have been through that horrible chapter in their lives and are still struggling with their weight. I stopped losing weight but I don't blame it on nopalina. Actually i think it is a really good product. Sometimes hormones interfere but what can we do about it, right? Keep trying nopalina and if you see absolutely no results then try something else. The good thing about it is that at least I feel no hunger whatsoever..I don't crave sweets anymore and I don't eat as much so I guess I'll just have to wait until my body decides that it wants to lose weight LOL. Good luck to you and keep me updated.

Hi

I have one problem with the Linaza When I GO, Im getting lots of cramps.  Is this an indication that Im taking to much, with too little liquid? I take 4 oz of O.J. with 2 spoons full of linaza.  Because with water it is not very pleasent. Or can it be an indication of something being wrong....
Please anyone advise!

Hello! I have a question for all you experienced people with Nopalina.  I've been taking it for 1 month only on and off.  I started to get cramping when I had to GO.  Is this normal, or am I taking to much with too little liquid.  Generally I use 4 oz OJ and two spoons of nopalina.  Im afraid that its a sign of something being wrong.  I get very bloated all the time Im slim, small, 120 pound with a size 32-34 waist I often look pregnant.  But don't want to loose weight anywhere else cause I then look to skinny, really skinny.I hate to be skinny, well too skinny. I was told once I look Like a crack head. I guess thats why I dont want to loose weight. Im a  Healthy eater, I excersize, My last child was 2 years ago. I should of lost this belly fat by now Right?  Will this work for my belly?
PS. Remember every scale reads a different #. being bloaded increases and decreases at least 3 pounds. Im proof.

It is normal to get cramps as long as you GO with no problems and as long as it's not like horrible cramps that you cannot handle. I also get cramps when there's motion inside and that is when I have to go. Don't worry.

Hello, I've been reading your comments for 2 weeks, and 1 week ago I started on Nopalina, So far I've lost 2 lbs, though the first 3 days on the Nopalina I went # 2 very often, the other 4 I go regular only once, no crampings, but the feeling I have to go is constant. My goal is to loose 35 lbs, and with the clear understanding that there are no miracles on loosing weight, I'm following the Scarsdale diet, see... Right after the 4th of july weekend I started the first 2 weeks of Scarsdale, lost 9 lbs,then I had to take a brake on the diet for 2 weeks, so in the second week of the brake I lost the 2 lbs on Nopalina. this week I go back on the Scarsdale, and will combine it with Nopalina. Will let you know how it goes.

hi all....
I must be honest. I did get a bit discouraged after seeing the scale at 2lbs +. I was going to start working out, but I get migraine headaches and woke up w/ one yesterday. Since I also have a baby at home, I have to plan everything around her. In a nutshell... haven't been able to go work out yet. Stopped taking Linaza 2 times a day and only took it once yesterday. I thank you all for your advise and because I see, there's such good intentions coming from you all.. I will not give up and continue taking my daily dose 2 times a day. I will get my butt to the gym asap. Thanks again for all your input. I will continue with you guys :-). We'll see who (the biggest looser is)lol hopefully soon!!!

Scarsdale is a diet plan based on low carb, low fat high protein, it is very strict on the choice of foods you take for two weeks, then you rest for two weeks and go back to it.

Hello, I think the best way to take Nopalina so far is to take it with about 6 oz. of reduced sugar Sunny D. the orange drink. You cannot even taste it. The only thing I have found is that if you take it with too little of fluid, it gets all stuck in your mouth. Very unpleasant. I wish Dateline or Primetime would come out with a show about this stuff. I would like some information about it. Cannot find much on the web. Good luck!

Hi, I read your comment on the scarsdale diet and I wanted to know if it's truly working for you. I'm trying to loose 35 lbs myself after just having my 2nd baby. It seems harder than ever! I started Napolina and you can read all my comments about it. It seems to be the latest fad in diets now. I've also purchased mine in the Navarro drugstore. My husband just mentioned to me how he visits clients and he sees the bag of Napolina on people's desk at work. I too take my Napolina w/ oj and it seems to be the best tasting method. It is very thick as it does not fully desolve, but it tastes like orange juice. I will continue the Napolina for its other benefits. However... I was considering purchasing the cd for the scarsdale diet to give me the boost I so desperately need.
Are you really loosing weight with the diet????? Please advise.

I'm thinking the scarsdale diet is more or less like the adkins diet. Am I correct? If anyone else has more info on this diet, please share your comments. I did the adkins diest right after my 1st baby and during the 1st 2 weeks which is the induction.. I lost 9 lbs. Now a days.. that diet doesn't work for me due to the fact that I suffer from migraines and for some reason all that protein and fat eating enduces the headaches. Thanks everyone and best of luck to us all :-)

Hi all. Well I don't know about you but Nopalina has definitely taken away my appetite. I'm eating three times a day, well 4 times. I need to drink milk b4 going to bed, otherwise I wont be able to sleep. Well here in Miami the product is really popular. I mean everybody is buying it. It's like Nopalina fever down here but I'm glad that it really works, at least for most people. My pants feel a little loose in my waistline so I guess it's all about patience. I have a question though. I've noticed that the more water I drink the more often I go to the bathroom and my stool is kind of like diarrhea. If I don't drink water a lot then I barely go to the bathroom. Have you experienced that or is it me? If you read this plz help me find out. I always drink it with milk. I think it's better but that's just how I function since I don't like orange juice much less sunny D. Have fun you all and have a great day.

If you are having trouble with  nopalina's taste  try it as a smoothie.

recipe:
2 tbls nopalina
1/2 banana
3/4 pieces of strawberries
3/4 small pieces of pineapple
1 cup of water or milk

optional:
1 tbl of white or brown sugar.
crushed ice

(or use any combination of fruits you like.)

(my husband asked for pills because he would refuse to drink it!!)
I tried it with orange juice, pineapple juice, flavored vanilla milk...nothing worked for him until I made this recipe.

It is like drinking a natural smoothie with its pulp !!
It is like having breakfast instead of drinking a medicine.
Believe me keeps you full!!!

GOD BLESS

Hola from Puerto Rico!!!
I just bought nopalina because of a friend who was looking for a natural alternative.  Here in Puerto Rico it's a big thing and everyone is either taking it or looking for it.  I purchased it at a popular health food store in my home town.  When I got home I immedeatly went on the web searching for results or warnings about this product and stumbled over you guys.  Being a vegetarian 5'2 and 140-142lbs people tend to ask me how come I am so heavy and to tell you the truth i have no rational answer for them.  I weighed 119-125 up until i was 25 now that i an 29 i have gained an outrageous amount of weight that even though to some seem as nothing on my frame it looks WRONG  i have back boobs double chin strech marks and two weeks ago discovered cellulite on my stomach, thighs, butt, arms, well you get the picture all over.  I have no time to exersice since I just started a new business and there is very little i can stop eating.  I sure as h**l hope this thing works.  I took my first dose on friday and felt extremely bloated.  Today I decided to give myself a enema beafore breakfast and took my nopalina dose with some milk and splenda( kind of taste like raw oats and milk) and went to the pool for some relaxation time with friends and neighbors.  About an hour after I started feeling a little gas and decided to go to the bathroom.  In the bathroom i was supprised to see that the gas was just a warning of something far more serious that had to be addressed there an then and going to the privacy of my own bathroom was not a option.  I will continue using this miracle mulch and will not stop until i am 20lb lighter.  If i don't make it during this long journey accident free i would like to say that it has been a pleasure reading your post i feel much better knowing that there is a army of women that know my pain.  KEEP STRONG, KEEP WET WIPES, KEEP DRY.

hello. i have been taking Nopalina for about 1 year now....This is what i have learned:  1.  the product is easily ingested by mixing two tablespoons in about 6 oz of HIGH PULP orange juice. The mixture swallows easily this way.
2.  the product may initially cause headaches and nausea as it begins to flush toxins and waste out of the body. Those who have never cleansed before, may likely experience these symptoms but only in the beginning. Do not be discouraged as this is only a natural side effect as the body prepares for colon cleansing, etc   3.  The more water you drink throughout the day, the more toxins are flushed, the more fat burned/ flushed, etc.  Water consumption alone flushes fat, so this is especially true while you take nopalina regularly: once in the morning, and once in the evening--preferably before dinner.  4.  The consistency of your "dump" will vary depending on the amount of food and water you ingest throughout the day....use your common sense here. The more conscious you are about eating habits along with a moderate and consistent exercise routine, the more rapid and effective your weight loss results will be. 5.  The cramps are normal.  This is your body eliminating EXCESS water weight and flushing out your colon, etc. 6. IF YOU DO NOT EXERCISE and expect to lose weight, you MUST take NOPALINA regularly! Morning and Night.  You must routinely take it for 6 months twice daily OR until desired weight loss is achieved. You MUST drink at least 2 liters of water throughout the day to flush out and burn excess fat.  Its that simple.

In your recipe for the smoothie, do and/or can you put the Nopalina in the blender?

And has anyone considered using soy milk? Would that be okay? I don't care for milk can't even really tolerate it so thinking about using soy milk.

I started taking Nopalina and started to have stomach cramps and diarreah (diarrhea). I did some researchand found out that it has some serious side effects in the long term. Senna can cause loss of electrolites and intestinal flora. At some point the great majority of people who are overweight , specially women retain up to 40 lbs liquid and have accumulated up to 40 lbs of fecal matter in their intestines in extreme cases. when you have this, it's ovbious that you will suffer overweight. the solution is to find a good colon cleanser, take it during the weekend. (make sure you have planty of toilet paper and magazines to read) and drink pineapple juice 3 glasses a day for 4 days and you will lose anywhere from 5 to 15 lbs in a week. There is no need to buy Nopalina. Nopalina is not meant to be taken longer than a week, as I said it has an irritant dangerous laxative called senna that should be handled carefully. Good Luck.

I started taking Nopalina about 2 weeks ago and at fist i did not like it, but i am giving it time.  i feel bloated right after, but know i need to drink more water.  As to Carmen H Senna is supposed to be healty and all natural.  I learned this when my hubby had cancer and the chemo and surgery wouldn't let him go.  The doctor told us about a all natural veggie lax call Senna or Senakot.  You can take them ongoing so it in the Nopalina should be no problem.

Buenas, les que ria comentar que he estado escuchando que nopalina tiene cascara sagrada y hoja sen y al contrario de lo que piensan muchos tiene riezgos para la salud. En un website que visite encontre lo siguiente: La Hoja Sen y otros estimulantes laxativos no deberian ser usados por mas de do semanas sin supervisión médica. El uso de La Hoja Sen por un periodo mas largo de lo recomendado puede resultar en Síndrome De Colon Peresozo y puede causar daño permanente al recubrimiento de los intestinos. Su uso continuo y e incontrolado puede causarle desbalance electrolítico y desbalance de fluidos, lo cual puede tener un efecto adverso en su corazón.
Ya saben, tengan precaucion y busquen otras alternativas mas seguras para perder peso.

I just started it today, I am aiming to lose a lot, 60 lbs to be exact :( but I know that this alone will not help me lose it all, I am determined to lose all my weight and I WILL. I am just glad to see that I am not alone. At least we are taing the halthy route and realize that there is no such thing as a miracle diet. I am 5'9" and now weight 240, would like to weigh 180 lbs. Wish me luck! I will be back!!

I live in  new york, and here you can purchase them at any supermarket for $10.00 a bag or may be more depends which part you live. I drink mines with orange juice and it taste better than with the milk. I try the milk yesterday, and I throw up. I don't know if it is in my head, but I have less than an appetite, sometimes I have to forst my self to eat a meal and I get full very fast as soon as I start to eat I am full.I don't crave for any sweets, and normaly I do eat a lot of chocolate, and chips I haven't since I started using flex seed.  I weight 180lbs and I'm trying to go down to 130 lbs. So good luck, and keep on using it. When using any dietry supplement, you know you will not see any results in no two days. Give the product at least one good month so your body will get use to it, and you will see the results.

It sounds like you are doing fine. All medications can have different effects on different people and they all can have an allergic reaction and complications. If its working for you and you don't have any problems then it is fine to continue. Just be aware and watchful of the possible complications.

i guess it all depends i mean everyones body is different and it might work on you differntly to how it works for me. OBVIOUSLY if you notice something too out of place then i guess ofcourse you should stop using nopalina  ...
I also called a pharmacy here that sells Nopalina and i was told that as long as it works ok for you then there is no reason not to use it long term !
Ofcourse if you should bleed, or have severe diarhea (diarrhea) or strong cramps then to reconsider and stop it's use

Napolina worked great for me the only thing is that I had to stop taking it after about 5 months because it was causing horrible breakouts. It looked like acne which I have never had I realized it was the napolina when i stopped it for about a week and my skin cleared I then took it again and brokeout. I stopped taking it and my face is back to normal. I am debating if I should go back on it since I want to loose a couple of pounds and nothing else works on my busy schedule = (

i couldnt wait so i took it today and also would like to pass on some info since i did mad @$$ reasearch befor i took this prouduct.

first i just didnt mix it with any liquid. i poped the powder mixter in my mouth then poured some warm tea in my mouth and it went down well no grittieniss or anything.

second to Tita2886 if it brakes you out its probly just some thing in the nopalina, as you should know, is ment to help with skin you might just be allergic to it.

third NOPALINA is the only fiber in the market that contains wheat bran, oat bran, and psyllium; ingredients that clean the effects of intestinal mucus. Nopalina alleviates gastric ulcers and nervous disturbances. Oat bran and wheat bran are high on fiber and helps regulate appetite and helps lose weight. Try to drink as much fluids as possible during your day. This product regulates the appetite because of the high count of fiber. It can give the feeling of fullness because of expanding effect of flax seed when it gets wet.

and lastly it affects medapause i dont know the reason for that but my theory (if you dont want to hear it go on to some one elses comment.) is because flax seed oil is an aphrodisiac (sexual stimulant)  which helps the blood circulate better Nopalina will clean and correct arterial circulation (Artery blood flow) and since your blood is flowing differently it affects womens metapause/period and since all our bodies are diferent it will, for some, help reduce the symptoms of metapause and in some just give you more cramps.

I hope some of the info i have dispelled will help some one.

P.S.i felt dirty talking about the fuction of a womens body when im a boy sorry if i offended some one.

Hi all
I just happened to come across this site and decided to leave you all with my post.
I lost 13 pounds in  a month taking nopalina once a day, and a pharmacist i know lost 30 pounds in one month she took it 2x's a day !
BUT saddly i must say that since the nopalina company decided to "improve" the product it now does nothing for me ... i think they took out an important ingredient (either flax seed or senna bark )
ust admit it was AWESOME stuff ! really worked for weight loss.
I will try to take a new nopalina that i bought in a golden bag and see if this one helps me according to the natural store where i bought it should work as same as the other one (silver bag) as the only thing chaged here was the color of the bag ! ( FINGERS CROSSED)

I have been using Napolina for a month, 1 tablespoon in the morning and one tablespoon at night. I haven't lost an inch. It makes me go to the restroom more often then prior to taking it, but I haven't lost any weight. I do exercise every 5 days a week, and I don't eat much....so I really don't see any effects with it.

HI, I just started taking Nopalina and before I purchased it, alot of my coworkers were taking it, and some lost lbs in 1 week and others took about 2 months. U have to give it time, and make sure u eat atleast 3 to 4 meals at the same time everyday. If u don't eat then ur metabolism slows down. keep tryin and u will see the results.

I have been taking nopalina for about nine days, and after the seventh day i weighed myself and lost one pound.  I was a little disappointed, but realized I have to give it time.  Is anyone else out there taking it?  I also noticed that I do feel full, and don't really have cravings.  So if anyone else is taking this product let me know how it's working for you, good luck to all.

I have been using Nopalina for several months.   Nopalina is high in fiber, and contains flaxseed, wheatbran and oatbran-- which all plays a  key role in lowering cholesterol, clearing the walls of the arteries ,which ultimately lowers one risks of heart disease , and the added bonus is since it is fiber, it  adds bulk to your stool thus keeping you regular.  I put 2-3 tbsp of Napolina in my oatmeal,mixed with either rice, soy or almond milk and a combo of fruits, be it dried cranberries, a green apple and a banana, or just apricots or peaches. I find that when I mix it it my morning oatmeal shake, it fills me up until late afternoon. I also have less cravings. Yes, I want to lose weight, but I tend to look at the other health benefits of Nopalina. Because it is high in fiber, it will fill you up making you eat less, thus reducing your daily caloric intake--- this is where the weight loss comes in, other than that, Nopalina is no wonder weight loss drug. You must eat  healthfully, exercise portion control, and workout at least three times per week for 45-60 mins.
I  take Noplaina only in the a.m, after reading above comments, I will also add it to my diet in the p.m.
Good Luck to all, and remember it is not about looking good in a particular outfit, it is about being healthy-- after all you deserve it!!!!
