What is Nochtli™?

Nochtli™ is a liquid dietary supplement made from the components of the nopal prickly pear cactus. Made with 99% cactus ingredients,
it is an all natural supplement that relies on the goodness of food harvested from the earth and minimally processed to ensure the best possible nutrition and benefits to your health.

What does the name mean?

“Nochtli” was the Aztec word for the prickly pear plant. The city of Tenochtitlan, now Mexico City, was founded by Aztecs around 1325 based on a prophecy about the place where prickly pear cacti would be found. We chose NochtliTMas the name of our products to emphasize the long history of these cacti as sources of wellness.

What is prickly pear?

The genus Opuntia is referred to by various names, including nopal cactus and prickly pear cactus. Typically, the pads of the cactus are referred to as “nopal” (in English) or “nopales” (in Spanish), while the fruits that grow from the pads are called prickly pears. Indeed, the spines on the fruits can be painful, so harvesting them takes some know-how. There are scores of species of prickly pear, with fruits appearing in hues of red, gold, and green (sometimes called white.)

What’s the difference between Ruby and Emerald Nochtli™?

We’ve formulated Nochtli™ Ruby Vitality Antioxidant and Nochtli™ Emerald Body Balance to support different body systems. The fresh, magenta color of Ruby Antioxidant is an indicator that it contains the betalains found in prickly pear fruit. Betalains are red pigments that function as antioxidants in the body, working at the cellular level to contain and calm physical stress. Emerald Body Balance is thick with nopal, an ingredient that supports cardiovascular health and balanced glucose levels. Both NochtliTM supplements are a 100% natural addition to a nutritious diet.

Why should I consume betalains in my diet?

Nutritionists advise making your plate colorful with the foods you choose because the natural pigments in food are markers of the nutrients they contain. Betalains are desirable but uncommon in fruits. Desert fruits, however, such as prickly pear contain a high concentration of betalains that are water-soluble and capable of being used by the body to improve its chemical environment at the cellular level.

How do betalains work?

Betalains are antioxidants. They help to prevent the oxidative stress of molecules in the body. While oxidation is a natural process, it can also produce free radicals. Free radicals may initiate the kinds of cellular changes that lead to in ammationnflamation, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Betalains support the natural detoxi cation process of cells in the body, and scientists believe this has a positive effect on health and longevity.
