Back in the day, about the only people who even thought about drinking cactus juice were prospectors and pioneers who’d gotten lost in the desert. But times have changed and now you can order a whopping four-pack of 32-ounce bottles of Nopalea cactus juice from a company called TriVita.
Why would you want to do that?
Well, according to the company’s website, its cactus juice from the blazing hot Sonora Desert of southern Arizona is downright anti-inflammatory. You know, sort of like it fights fire with fire.
Or as TriVita puts it: “Featuring the superfruit of the prickly pear (nopal) cactus, it contains a powerful class of nutrients called Bioflavonoids.” …
Everyone knows that you don’t drink cacti, you smoke it. Like wheat grass. 🙂
