Home » Is Dragon Fruit For Real?

Once again the new year is in full swing and many of us are trying to figure out how we can still remain true to those New Years resolutions and the promises we made to ourselves? You know those promises where we tell ourselves that this year, it's gonna be different and I'm going to work at being physically & mentally healthy. So the problem many consumers face is that with so many diet supplements and get fit quick solutions, it's hard to know what it truly effective and more importantly, why?

Now most of us have seen or tried products designed to give you a "new you" or in some cases the "old you" in a short period of time.  As a result these products almost never work. So when the term "Dragon Fruit" is thrown around one has to wonder if someone is trying to capitalize off of the fandom of "Game of Thrones". 

Actually no, it's actually a Cactus Fruit that works to help you in a natural and healthy capacity. So effective that it's still growing in popularity within the nutraceutical world. We took a quick look at it in our blog back in 2018 but since so many are still in the dark about Cactus Fruit, let's revisit.

Over the past couple years, a large amount of studies have been conducted and thus the development of advanced formulations occurred. As a result these formulations are able aid the digestive system's bacteria ecosystem effect on various areas of the human body.

This is where Cactus Fruit comes into play as a "dietary super-supplement." The reasoning for this is that it's rich in antioxidants with vitamin C, polyunsaturated fatty acids, and B vitamins, the cactus fruit benefits immunity, skin, cardiovascular, and metabolic health. As you can tell it's quite an all in one ingredient for many.

Now there are many varieties of Cactus Fruit itself that grows from several different species of cactus plants grown in the Americas and South East Asia. This is why Vesta Nutra spent a great deal of time researching and developing an all-natural ingredient based on the most potent varieties.
