Proprietary blends are not inherently negative for the consumer though they can be confusing when making comparisons.

Companies that list a “proprietary blend” on the bottle are usually doing so for one of two reasons:

(1) to prevent the competition from knowing exactly what ratios and amounts of nopal cactus (prickly pear) are present in the formula so the competition can't copy the recipe.

(2) to hide the fact that the formula contains very little nopal cactus (prickly pear) to fool consumers. 

How can you tell the difference?

You can’t. Most nopal cactus (prickly pear) juice companies count on the fact that consumers don’t have the time to invest in researching the contents of their bottles of nopal cactus (prickly pear) juice. 

Some companies offer an impressive list of ingredients that they hope will justify higher prices; however, unless those ingredients are in proper and abundant proportions, the juice will have little effect on the overall health and wellness of those consuming it. Other companies attempt to baffle buyers with exclusive proprietary blends that conceal the actual content amounts.

Now let us ask you this question - Is a company that is not completely transparent about how much nopal cactus (prickly pear) is in their juice a company that you want to do business with? Natural Home Cures provides 500 mg of Freeze Dried Nopal Cactus (Prickly Pear) in every capsule of our 120 capsules bottle. With Natural Home Cures, there is never any guessing with us. So doesn't it just make sense to purchase your nopal cactus (prickly pear) from a source that discloses exactly how much nopal cactus (prickly pear) you are receiving?
