One of the most popular traditional uses of the prickly pear, is as a hangover cure, where it has been used to reduce headaches associated with too much alcohol due to its anti-inflammatory qualities.

Wow its no wonder this fruit has become a super food, traditionally used for its beneficial properties for hundreds of years.

We are always being advised to drink lots of water, but its not always that easy to drink enough and it can get very dull after a while. True nopal cactus water is a tasty, low calorie alternative that is 100% natural, with no added sugar and contributes to your hydration levels. Studies have shown that staying hydrated is a key way to keep your skin looking and feeling great as your skin is made up of so much water. With the surface layer of your skin containing approximately 30% water, and deeper layers containing up to 70%, hydration is a key factor to helping your skin feel plump and firm.

Hydration is easily influenced by environmental changes such as warm weather and lots of exercise. With European guidelines showing that beverages should contribute to 75% of our daily water intake, women should consume 2L, whilst men should consume 2.5L daily. True nopal cactus water offers a tasty alternative that’s still low calorie at only 29 calories per serve and offers a light fruity taste, perfect to keep you hydrated on your daily adventures.

Having harnessed the power of the nopal cactus, true nopal cactus water is the first of its kind to be sold in the UK. Always on hand to help support your active and healthy lifestyle, with no fat, no added sugars, no sodium, no preservatives and its even gluten-free.
