Opuntia Ficus Indica Extract 10:1 is a fine brown to yellow powder extracted from the leafless parts of prickly pear plants. It commonly grows in the arid and semi-arid regions of the world such as Mexico, South America and the Mediterranean. Stems and fruit of the Opuntia ficus indica were traditionally used in folk medicine in several countries for multiple medicinal purposes.

Supplementing the diet with cactus pear fruit is associated with reduced post-prandial blood glucose levels and reduced serum cholesterol levels. Cactus pear fruit supplementation is also associated with a beneficial effect on oxidation markers in the blood. In one human intervention study the extract of the Opuntia ficus indica was found to have a moderate effect in reducing hangover symptoms when taken before alcohol consumption. 

Opuntia Ficus Indica Extract 10:1 is suitable for use in capsules, tablets and blends for post-workout formulations.
