The Superfruit of the prickly pear (nopal) cactus, contains a powerful class of nutrients called Betalains. Betalains help your body maintain a healthy Immune system and reduce harmful inflammation.


What are Betalains?

Betalains are plant-based compounds that have antioxidant properties and give the prickly pear fruit its distinctive bright red color.

The prickly pear cactus of the Sonoran Desert contains a high concentration of protein-bound Betalains. This is because the Sonoran Desert is the most extreme desert in the world and this plant needs Betalains to survive in the intense environment.

How about you? Are you exposed to toxins from outside and inside your body? Perhaps Betalains—these nutrients from the Sonoran Desert—can help you experience greater wellness.

We tapped the expertise of local botanists and the indigenous peoples to focus ultimately on the remarkable prickly pear cactus and its fruit.
