The Amplify Series is expanding, Cactinea™ is here.
Cactinea™ from Nexira is an organic weight-loss ingredient that is extracted from the fruit of Opuntia ficus-indica known as Prickly Pear. The idea behind the Amplify series is to “amp up” your existing supplement regime. Something to give you that extra boost, at a reasonable cost, without investing in a completely new supplement stack. Cactinea™ can be paired with Cutz, Shredz and Suppress to add an extra weight-loss and water-elimination edge to our fat-burning and appetite-control products.
What is prickly pear?
Also known as nopal, nopales, tunas, or tuna, Prickly pear (Opuntia ficus-indica) is a cactus that has long been used as food and medicine. In addition to being a good source of nutrition, it can also have numerous health benefits. One of these health benefits is that it helps with weight loss.
I’ve seen prickly pear promoted as a superfood. What’s behind the hype?
The hype is real, the prickly pear is jam-packed full of fibre and contains plenty of vitamins and minerals. A 149g serving of the fruit contains 1g of Protein, 1g of fat, 14g of carbohydrates, 5g of fibre, Magnesium, Vitamin C, Potassium and Calcium. It contains both soluble and insoluble fibre, important components for gut health. The combination of magnesium, potassium and calcium benefits healthy blood pressure. While Vitamin C is important for your immune system. As well as all of that, it contains plant compounds that act as antioxidants, reducing oxidative stress and detoxing your body.
What are the health benefits of Cactinea™?
Nexira conducted primary research which demonstrated that Cactinea™ can increase the elimination of excess water by up to 27%. The main purpose of Cactinea™ is to work as a tool for weight loss. Though it’s also full of the richest natural source of indicaxanthin, a highly bioavailable betalain pigment with proven antioxidant and metabolic health benefits. Cactinea™ can be used for weight management, water elimination and detox benefits.
How should I use Cactinea™?
Being part of our Amplify Series, Cactinea™ can be used on its own, or alongside your usual daily supplement routine. For basic everyday use, you can take up to two capsules daily. For more intensive use, for professional bodybuilding or use in the run-up to a show, you can take up to four capsules. If taking a higher dose, please ensure you are well hydrated and have made use of fat-burning products in the past with no ill effects. Always consult your doctor before using any supplement. Supplements are to be used in the framework of a healthy and balanced diet, and not as a replacement for the same.
