The prickly pear contains a special ingredient called Opuntia. The Mexicans also call this substance Nopal. Nowadays, it is known worldwide that the prickly pear cactus can help the body lose weight. The active ingredients in the prickly pear cactus can bind excess fat by connecting the fat molecules together. In this way, the human body is no longer able to absorb the fat and it is naturally filtered out. It helps the human body reabsorb sugar and fats. This subsequently leads to an increase in insulin sensitivity. As a result, the carbohydrates absorbed can be metabolized much better and the excessively high energy, which consists of carbohydrates such as fat, can be routed out of the body without any problems. This process takes place in a natural and gentle way.
