In less than a month from now, tens of millions of people will begin to reflect: “Did I achieve what I wanted to in 2018?”

Others will prefer to look to the future: How can I resolve to improve myself for 2019?The Cactus Fruit

It's no surprise that this time of year propels a boost in weight-loss related dietary supplement purchases. But that's changing as consumers are beginning to focus on overall health rather than picking a diet to tip the scales in the reverse direction for once. 

Exhibit A: Probiotics. After a groundswell of studies emerged that demonstrated the influence of the digestive system's bacteria ecosystem on so many areas of the human body; nutraceutical formulations targeting this once-overlooked area began to emerge.

There's even evidence to support a bidirectional” communication between the gut and the brain. Sure enough, there are nutraceuticals emerging to target this relationship as well.

So what's the next dietary super-supplement? What nutraceutical will offer multiple health benefits in one dose? The research team here at Vesta Nutra would tell you — maybe even in unison — “Cactus Fruit!”

Rich in antioxidants with vitamin C, polyunsaturated fatty acids, and B vitamins, the cactus fruit benefits immunity, skin, cardiovascular, and metabolic health.

Cactus fruit itself comes in a few different varieties and can be plucked from several different species of cactus plants grown in the Americas and South East Asia. Vesta Nutra developed an all-natural ingredient based on the most potent varieties.
