"El Nopalito has been a delight of the summer. I'm down to my last bottle!" -Melinda M
Meet Nopalito! Infused with nopal cactus, habanero and cilantro it is a trip to the heart of Texas!
Here's a bit more about why we love these ingredients below:
The Nopal cactus may be familiar to us as the prickly pear cactus we see all around! While prickly pears are beloved and used in juices and cocktails etc, most of us don’t know that the actual cactus itself is excellent in many dishes!
It’s been said the habanero pepper has a Napoleon complex. We add just enough to give you a little burn, but is there more in that spice than meets the taste bud? The capsaicin (spice factor) in habaneros stimulates the increase of the insulin-like growth factor IGF-I which reduces blood pressure. Capsaicin increases thermogenesis (body temperature) increasing the metabolism increasing the rate at which you burn calories.
Cilantro has many benefits in addition to being just plain delicious. Dodecanal - the compound found in cilantro leaves and seeds has been proven to be twice as effective as medical-grade antibiotics. It is also used widely for detoxing of heavy metals. Read the full study here!
We love using ALL STAR ingredients to make our bone broth even more delicious. Wellness well made!
