Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I used to juice the fresh Nopalito cactus every day but found it hard to locate in my area. Since using the Prickly Pear Cactus Opuntia, it works great for increasing bulk and fiber to create regularity. It's also convenient to take along when you travel. August 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by effective I order this for my husband and it seems to be helping him if he remembers to take it a half hour before he eats. November 11, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by I have taken this product for several weeks exactly as indicated on the container. See no difference whatsoever. Was thinking today that I need to return the extra containers. October 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It helped me I bought this product on the recommendation of research biologist. I also did my own research as to the usage and effectiveness. What I found has confirmed that ancient people believed in natural remedy long before the different medical boards were established. So I figured if it work for so many people it should also work for me. I am completely satisfied with this and other products I bought from Swanson Health Products. August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by hopeful the more hopeful the more I use the better the affect April 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value I am taking this for joint health and haven't been taking it long enough to notice any difference, but compared to other joint health supplements, this is a good value. March 6, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed This product is advertised to assist with weight loss management. When a product indicates that it boosts the metabolism, to me that means with low calorie eating I should loose a few pounds. I had been maintaining my weight for 2 years - not loosing but at least not gaining either. Imagine my dismay when I gained 4 pounds while taking this product!!! July 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for losing weight naturally. March 30, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by really good stuff! this is really a great product.if you want to maintain good glucose levels,and curb your appetite,this is the stuff for you!...i take 3 a half hour before a meal,and it really curbs my appetite,and helps me to stay on track,especially during the holidays.i take this along with swansons glucomannon,and tri-fiber complex...my system is used to the high fiber,so for those who are just beginning a regiman like this,my advice is to start of with half dosages,and build up to the full recommended dosage.you wont experiance the bloating,exc..that can happen...the price is right also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Delays the hungries I've tried a lot of different things, but the prickly pear cactus seems to work best to delay hunger by two or three hours without causing any stomach or gastric distress. August 19, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by What a Superior Product For decades I have used this product in the fresh produce form from Mexican markets in the southwest desert. Since I travel often, and to parts where it is convenient to have a portable supply, I find that the Swanson Premium brand suits me, serves me and satisfies me in every way. I recommend Swanson Premium Prickly Pear Cactus Opuntia for value and superior quality. July 22, 2009
