Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules (Prickly Pear) Contains Valine (Essential Amino Acid)

Our Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules (Prickly Pear) contains valine that helps the body recover from all types of injury, such as burns, cuts, and muscle tearing(1*).

Because of its role in building muscle(2*), valine is often used as a supplement by bodybuilders and weightlifters. In addition to helping the muscles repair themselves, valine can also be used as 'energy' when the muscles need a quick fuel source(3*). This also conserves Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) for use elsewhere.

Valine is sought after for muscle building because it maintains the nitrogen balance of the body(4*). Simply put, a positive nitrogen balance means there is protein for the body to draw on (i.e., to build muscles with), whereas a negative nitrogen balance means there is a deficit of protein—the body is losing more protein than it is taking in(5*).

Athletes and those who train very hard for long periods may require supplementation with valine and other amino acids because prolonged, intense training increases the demand for amino acids by the body(6*).

Severely injured individuals may also take valine supplements to help their body repair itself faster(7*).Valine has also been used for the management of drug addiction(8*).
