Nopal is derived from the prickly pear cactus, which is native to Mexico and the southwestern regions of the US. In Mexico, its use as a food and medicine dates back to the Aztec period, 900-1521 AD. After the spines have been removed, this tasty ripe fruit has a unique sweet flavour that continues to be a staple in the Mexican diet. Nopal has a valuable role to play in overcoming a wide range of health issues – it has been found to be beneficial in helping to regulate blood sugar levels, aid weight loss, lower cholesterol levels and overcome gastrointestinal disorders like constipation.
Nopal contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, and C, in addition to the minerals potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron. Also present are 18 amino acids in the form of easily digestible protein.
As a fibrous plant, Nopal is a rich source of insoluble and soluble fibre. Its high-fibre content is thought to be largely responsible for so many of its healthful benefits.
