Our Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules (Prickly Pear) contains vitamin A which is a fat-soluble group of vitamins found mostly in animal-based foods such as eggs, liver and in other food products that are fortified with vitamin A.(1*)

Another source of vitamin A comes from plants that possess a pigment called carotenoids.(2*) The right kind of carotenoid can be turned into vitamin A from within our body. Beta-carotene yields more retinol than other carotenoids because of the extra retinyl functional group attached to it.(3*) Vitamin A is essential for reproduction, bone growth, vision, cell division, and differentiation.(4*) In addition, vitamin A helps maintain healthy eyes as well as a healthy intestinal, urinary and respiratory tract.(5*) Moreover, it plays a role in the production of mucus membranes and skin both of which act as a barricade against viruses and bacteria.(6*) Vitamin A also aids in supporting the immune system via helping with the production of white blood cells that fend off all foreign micro-organisms.(7*)
