Prickly Pear General Information
Prickly Pear, also known as Barbary pear, cactus pear, Indian pear, Indian fig, tuna fig, and Nopal, is not a fig or pear. It comes from any of numerous cacti of the genus Opuntia and has been part of the European flora since the 16th century. The Spanish imported it from Mexico to Europe soon after the discovery of America. The Prickly Pear contains about 83% water and 10% sucrose. The remainder is tartaric acid, citric acid, mucilage and other mucopolysaccharides.

Prickly Pear Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Prickly Pear flowers were traditionally used and taken internally as medicine for male urinary discomforts. It was also used externally as an ointment. This cactus contains pectins and mucilage that are beneficial to the digestive system. Prickly Pear is particularly useful in providing nutrients to the pancreas and liver, which support digestion and maintain blood sugar balance. Nutritional factors may act in the bowel to prevent fat and excessive sugars from entering the bloodstream. Prickly Pear leaves can be used in a moisturizer to protect the skin from the sun. The pulp of the leaf can be used as poultice for numerous skin irritations.

Hangovers:

Alcohol hangovers can cause substantial economic and health consequences. The severity of your alcohol hangover may be related to inflammation caused by impurities in alcoholic beverages and byproducts of alcohol metabolism. C-reactive protein, a protein produced by the liver, becomes elevated after injury or trauma and is thought to be involved in inflammation and alcohol hangovers. An extract from the skin of the prickly pear fruit, Opuntia ficus indica (OFI) has been shown to reduce inflammation, the article states.
