Arizona Cactus Ranch is a 100 year old cattle ranch that now concentrates on selling natural prickly pear products and mesquite products. 100% Certified Organic.
Arizona Cactus Ranch is located on forty square miles of desert near Green Valley in Southern Arizona, and is surrounded by Englemann Prickly Pear Cactus. Every August and September fruit buds from the cactus is harvested to produce a slightly sweet tasting juice that's 100% pure, concentrated prickly pear nectar with no sugar or preservatives added.
There has been a great deal of medical interest in Prickly Pear recently. Several studies, using Arizona Cactus Ranch Prickly Pear Nectar, have shown that the pectin (a dietary fiber similar to the kind found in Mesquite) contained in the Prickly Pear pulp dramatically lowers levels of "bad" cholesterol while leaving "good" cholesterol levels unchanged. In addition to this, another study found that the fibrous pectin in the fruit lowers diabetics' need for insulin.
