Foreseen Shield Nopal, limiting ageing caused by solar rays


Born in the centre of Mexico, that cactus with an original shape characterized by its organization with cladodes (or raquettes) has been introduced in the Old World in the 16th century where it specially grew in the Mediterranean area. Nowadays it is cultivated for its fruits, the Barbary figs and the young edible cladodes (called nopalitos) and their numerous culinary and medicine uses, discovered by Meso- American people since the 16th century. Indeed, nopal would be healing, anti-oxidizing (thanks to the vitamin E it contains), and, according to some studies, it would help to decrease glucose and lipids in blood. It is designed on the Mexican flag since the independence of Mexico.
