Insulin and Blood Fat Modulation
Nopal is primarily known for its positive effect on blood sugar because of its ability to normalize levels and increase insulin sensitivity. Blood sugar control is attributable to its fiber content and specific hypoglycemic molecular agents. These specific phyto-nutrients have been shown to augment the body’s cellular response to insulin.
The Prickly Pear Cactus is also known to balance blood fats because of its carotenoid and glycoprotein properties. Polysaccharide fibers and sterols exhibit a positive effect on cholesterol and triglycerides by literally binding with bile salts, therefore reducing unhealthy lipids in the blood. Because of this, the conversion of blood sugar to fats is prevented.
