The Pricky Pear a.k.a. Cactus Fruit has become one of my favorite fruit lately and the Anti-Aging power this Pricky Pear has (is really tricky, so be careful pealing!) is amazing!
The prickly pear is originally from Mexico, but now also grows in Spain and Portugal and Australia. The fruit tastes sweet. The fruit is full off hard seeds which can also be eaten.
Cactus fruit has a high nutritional value. The percentages of vitamins and minerals are extremely high. Flavonoids and Antioxidants are the “magic words” in this fruit. It is packed with flavonoids and antioxidants!
NOTE: ALWAYS REMOVE THE SKIN WITH A GLOVE! IT’S EXTREMELY PRICKY. NEVER EAT THE SKIN!
Other benefits of this Pricky Cactus are that they boost your immune system. A single serving of prickly pears contains almost half of your entire daily requirement of vitamin C! Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C plays a major role in the immune system, stimulating the production of white blood cells and acting as an antioxidant throughout the body. Furthermore, vitamin C is an important component of various enzymatic and metabolic processes, including the creation of bone and muscle tissue.
So if you are trying a new fruit; this Pricky anti-aging health booster is definitely recommended by bestanti-aging.com. Enjoy!
