Many of our customers say they take cactus as a medicine. It does not take much to regulate blood sugar. It is said to slow the absorption of sugar into the body and reduces the spikes in sugar levels. This is an endorsement of a prepared cactus juice that is marketed nationally.
People can buy our fresh organic edible cactus and see if they get the same benefits.
Dr. Oz uses some funnels and such to illustrate how it is thought eating cactus helps control the flow of sugar into the body, and thereby help relieve some of the symptoms of Type II diabetes for some people.
Many of our customers say that eating just a little of the cactus every day or two helps maintain their proper blood-sugar levels. I'm not a doctor, so I have to rely on the doctors (and customers) to know these things.
