Prickly pear cactus has soothing and healing properties that the gut loves. The slimy inside coats the stomach and intestines, acting like a healing band-aid for inflammation, ulcers, etc. This plant is full of vitamins and minerals, aiding the body in efficient functioning. Cactus can help to normalize bowel movements meaning if you are experiencing constipation OR diarrhea, it can balance out either. It is an excellent aid in stabilizing blood sugar, without lowering blood sugar along the way. Prickly pear also helps to keep the mucous membranes and skin moist inside and out.
A very helpful summer pal that replenishes essential minerals too!
