A new functional and flavorful line of healthy beverages is hitting shelves as Steaz debuts Cactus Water, a ready-to-drink product loaded with all-natural health benefits. Steaz expanded its product line to bring an innovative new offering to market. The Cactus Water is made from the fruit of the prickly pear cactus.

"We are excited to be bringing our consumers a beverage option that is unlike anything else available today," explained Linda Barron, CEO of Steaz. "Steaz has always been a forward-thinking, innovative brand, and our new Cactus Water line is a great example of that. Cactus Water has many nutritional properties, giving consumers a product that not only tastes great but has great benefits as well. It furthers our mission of creating healthy and delicious drinks that are good for the mind, body and soul."

Steaz's Cactus Water beverage line is a certified organic cactus water product. It has harnessed the efficacy of prickly pear juice as an ingredient and combined it with organic green tea, natural flavors and lightly sweetened with stevia, to set it apart in both its taste and the health benefits it offers. The Steaz Cactus Water line debuts with three refreshing flavors: Original Cactus Water with Green Tea, Cactus Water with Cucumber and Green Tea, and Cactus Water with Starfruit and Green Tea.

The prickly pear cactus fruit contains powerful antioxidants, reduces inflammation, and is ultra-hydrating. It's an ingredient that fights free radicals and improves cell function, making it beneficial to the whole body.

"I've been a fan of Steaz's iced-green tea drinks for years, and I'm excited to now be working with the brand to help launch their new cactus water line and educate the public about prickly pear juice. It's a relatively unknown ingredient but contains a powerhouse of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants," stated Peggy Kotsopoulos, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, author, and Steaz spokesperson. "I recommend Steaz Cactus Water to everyone -- it's as great for maintaining healthy, beautiful skin as it is for post-workout hydration. Plus, it contains less sugar and calories than most functional waters with comparable nutritive values, like coconut water, and it's absolutely delicious."

All three flavors of Steaz Cactus Water are at Whole Foods Market with a price of $2.79 per can.
