Nopal is also known as Prickly Pear Cactus. Some believe traditional (folk) medicine calls for tea made from the Nopal and it's fruit to aid in managing sugar levels and digestion, and to reduce inflammation. Nopales effect on the glycemic index was recently researched, according to a study published in 2007 in 'Diabetes Care' titled "Lowering effect on postprandial glycemic response of nopales added to Mexican breakfasts."
