(*) See References and Disclaimer at the bottom of the page.

Nopal cactus (prickly pear) contains Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid). If you are deficient in Vitamin C, you may experience scurvy, an increased risk of a heart attack and stroke, increased risk of cancer, cataracts, and diabetes(1*), (2*).

Vitamin C helps in maintaining capillary strength(3*), fighting off colds and strengthening the body's immune system(4*). In addition, it partners with other nutrients to build various tissues, and it is also responsible for creating collagen(5*). Vitamin C also helps the skin from bruising and aids the blood from clotting(6*). Vitamin C boosts the body's ability to absorb iron(7*).

The human body cannot produce vitamin C. Therefore, the only way to obtain it is through eating foods that contain Vitamin C or dietary supplements, such as our Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules (Prickly Pear)(8*).

Sources of Vitamin C

Broccoli, Grapefruits, Oranges, Potato, Strawberry, Tomato and Nopal Cactus (Prickly Pear) from Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules (Prickly Pear).
