Founded by Napa Valley-based farmer Sarita Lopez, ¡CACTUS! Organic Cactus Water was launched after Sarita began personally experiencing some of the health benefits of juicing with the cactus leaves that grew on her family farm. Sarita set out on a mission to get more people to experience the hydration benefits of cactus paddles and soon ¡CACTUS! Organic Cactus Water was conceived.
After much experimenting with the recipe, Sarita produced a refreshing low-calorie drink full of electrolytes and Vitamin C in lime, watermelon and papaya flavors. ¡CACTUS! is an ideal for hydrator for runners and people who do cardio and an excellent drink for people who live in hot climates. It's now available in fine grocery stores across the Southwest U.S. with plans to expand nationwide in 2022.
¡CACTUS! Organic Cactus Water is Now Available on Amazon
The Desert Hydrator, Popular in the Southwest, Now Available Nationwide
Napa, CA – ¡CACTUS! Organic Cactus Water, already available in fine grocery stores throughout the Southwest United States, is now also available nationwide on Amazon. Powered by USDA-certified organic nopal cactus leaf, ¡CACTUS! contains antioxidants, electrolytes and amino acids to form a uniquely powerful hydrocolloid that promotes absorption and retention in the body. ¡CACTUS!, known as the Desert Hydrator, is available in lime, papaya and watermelon flavors and low in sugar and calories.
“We’re one of very few cactus waters on the market that is produced from the cactus leaf rather than prickly pear,” says founder Sarita Lopez. “The cactus leaf contains antioxidants, betalains, electrolytes and amino acids. When combined with water, the result is a light, clean, refreshing hydration source, excellent for the body in hot conditions or after an intense workout.” Lopez first discovered the health benefits of cactus water while working on her family’s Napa-based organic farm, where health-conscious locals would buy her cactus leaves to use them as a juicing ingredient.
The hydrocolloid in nopal cactus leaf binds to water and acts like a sponge. It is what gives the cactus the ability to absorb and retain water and micronutrients and survive in the scorching desert heat. ¡CACTUS! contains this same hydrocolloid, which boosts hydration, absorption and retention in the human body.
¡CACTUS! is available on Amazon for $17.94 per 6 pack of 12 fluid ounce cans. ¡CACTUS! is also available in select grocery stores throughout the Southwest, including H-E-B and Raleys.
¡CACTUS! is organic cactus water powered by cactus leaf.
