Every week we will be posting anonymous questions from our customers. Everything from correct dosage, to our farming methods, and much more. Following up with last week’s Dear Seagate about Nopal cactus, we had another interesting question come in that should be shared with all…
I bought a cactus leaf (ear?) at the store today and I was wondering how much a person is supposed to eat. I will also take the Seagate nopal capsules and I am going to see how/if it affects my blood sugar.
When we process the nopal leaves we get just 3-5% yield dried and in powder from the original weight. This is the worst % of all the products that we produce since the Nopal is almost all water. It turns out that you really need to take it in the dried powder form rather than as raw cactus in order to get the maximum benefit of the absorption of the sugars and other water-soluble liquids in the stomach. If you are eating the raw cactus leaves, the absorption won’t be quite as good. However, the colon-cleansing application should still be okay. You may still enjoy a good bowel-movement.
