This is a guy who I've trekked several thousand miles with over the past ten years. When you spend that much time together in charity jog-a-thons and on countless trails that are jogging, you actually get to know a person.

He understands that I experience moderate inflammation in my left knee and my right shoulder--sports injuries from playing ball a little too much and a little overly irresponsibly as a child--so he explained that his mom, who has light osteoarthritis, had called him the previous weekend, practically giddy about this new juice she started drinking.

"She's trouble sleeping sometimes because her hands ache," he told me as we dodged a pair of joggers heading in the opposite way. You should attempt this stuff, man." I prodded him for more info and when we parted ways I left with my default disbelief intact, but I was definitely intrigued.
Perhaps it was because my knee was hurting that afternoon or because my friend hadn't ever steered me wrong before, I decided that it could not damage to take his guidance, so I began doing a little research. The Nopalea drink is advertised as having some quite large benefits like:
1. Anti-inflammatory properties for muscles and joints (this appealed to me the most)
3. Reducing general fatigue and feelings of lethargy
4. A manner to naturally detox your body
So I purchased my first batch of Nopalea juice, which was easy and just took a few minutes and went ahead. "Well," I thought. "We'll see."
