Aloe is a powerful plant. When I used to hear aloe I would automatically think of sunburn relief. In fact I keep two aloe vera plants in my home and have used them for just that. However aloe vera has another important use. It aloe helps to relieve intestinal damage. It’s got nourishing properties unparalleled by anything else in the plant world. It’s almost as if aloe vera was made for the human gut. I have seen this plant work well for some, but then others may not tolerate due to an underlying sensitivity to the plant. All I can say is, try it.
Why Aloe Juice Works
Aloe provides soothing relief from digestive distress. It nourishes the intestinal lining and promotes easy elimination without pain or excess acidity. If you are experiencing uncomfortable gas and bloating aloe vera juice may help.
Aloe vera juice is rich in enzymes that help break down food and increase assimilation. Aloe vera has prebiotic compounds that help feed healthy bacteria in the gut. It’s also helpful for acid reflux issues as it nourishes and soothes the esophageal lining.
The best part about aloe is that it isn’t just another isolated supplement, it’s a food. It’s loaded with nutrients like vitamin A, C, E, B12 and folate as well as minerals and contains nearly all the essential amino acids. Pretty amazing.
It’s easy to use this common houseplant, you can buy the juice directly, or start growing your own organic aloe. It’s one of the lowest maintenance plants you can get (which is the only reason mine’s still alive). Once your aloe plant has reached a healthy size you can cut a leaf off, split it open and add the gel to your smoothies or water.
Holistic health doesn’t get much easier than aloe vera. Add all ingredients you would normally put in your smoothie along with some fresh aloe, then blend until super smooth.
