Cactus Optunia is an old Mexican supportive. Cactus Optunia, also known as Prickly Pear, is a great source of vitamin C and provides 17 essential amino acids. As a fibrous plant, Cactus Optunia contains pectin, mucilage and gums that are helpful to the digestive system. The body systems most affected are the glandular, nervous, circulatory, respiratory and intestinal tract. Studies show Cactus Optunia actually improves the functioning of the immune system and is a natural source for ascorbic acid and bioflavonoids.
Interestingly, the prickly pear cactus (Optunia) has bristles that are barbed like bee stings and they can be used to make the world's itchiest itching powder.

My doctor recommended I take prickly pear extract supplement to help me control my blood sugar level - I am a diabetic. My understanding is that cactus lowers bad cholesterol without affecting good cholesterol levels or triglycerides levels.
