Wereque is a cactus plant that is native to Mexico and the southwestern United States. It has a long history as a traditional folk remedy among indigenous peoples. It was used as a natural support for healthy immune and digestive systems. Wereque contains compounds that may reduce inflammation in the body and may support a healthy immune response; both properties make it potentially useful to promote wound healing. Today, Wereque is primarily used to help maintain normal, healthy blood sugar levels, regulate digestion, and promote bowel movements. *
