NeOpuntia® is a 100% natural ingredient made from dehydrated cactus leaves (Opuntia ficus indica). Over and above its lipophilic properties (ability to interact with fats), NeOpuntia® also shows a positive effect on blood lipid parameters and Syndrome X diagnosis.
A published clinical study* showed that NeOpuntia® could increase HDL cholesterol levels, with a significant trend (+0.0217 g/l) - whilst it is widely known that increasing HDL levels may help to reduce cardiovascular risks.
What's more, almost 40% of women in the NeOpuntia® group were no longer diagnosed with Metabolic Syndrome, against only 8% for the Placebo group.
