Digestive System

Nopal is an herb well suited for the digestive system. Because of this, Nopal is particularly beneficial when it comes to nutrients for the pancreas and liver, which in turn support digestion and help maintain blood sugar balance.

Nopal is a cactus plant, commonly called "Prickly Pear," and in Mexico its succulent, dethorned leaves are used as food. As a fibrous plant, it contains pectin, mucilage and gums which are helpful to the digestive system. These and other nutritional factors may be useful in the bowel to prevent fat and excessive sugars from entering the bloodstream.
