What Are Betalains?

Well, they are a quirky, but very powerful class of antioxidants, also found in beets, they have the ability to scavenge and nullify those nasty free radicals that inflict untold damage on our bodies, inevitably aging us faster than nature intended.
Our blood vessels have very slim linings, so it is imperative that there are no obstructions for the blood to flow freely. Thanks to betalains, they will guard these linings. The result? Inflammation is greatly reduced, and no sticky blood or clots, and less chance of a stroke or heart attack.
It doesn't stop there, more health benefits of betalains are it's ability to...

The reason for this is all down to the tough extremes of weather in the Sonoran Desert (North America).Fact..There are only 24 betalains that are known. Beets contain 8, interestingly Swiss Chard has up to 12..and nopal cactus-fruit wins with all known 24!

Cactus Fruit Health Benefits
Here is an interesting bit of research and study on the native Pima Indians and the health benefits of cactus juice. Apparently those who eat nopal cactus fruit as a part of their traditional diet compared to those who decided to follow a more westernised diet..have an average life span of up to 20 years longer. Average life expectancy of the first group is 71, whereas the second group was only 51 years.
Even more interesting is that diabetes rates are staggeringly different for the two groups too. The first bunch of Pima Indians has a 0% incidence by the time they reach 40 years. But the second group has a 80 percent incidence of diabetes at the same age!
The Pima Indians who regularly consume nopal cactus fruit are also known to take part in endurance events including 150 mile foot races.As they say, the proof's in the pudding!
