As Winnie the Pooh said … autumn! A time of hot chocolatey mornings, and toasty marshmallow evenings, and, best of all, leaping into leaves. But how to enjoy it, stuck at home under a duvet, with a box of Kleenex and a cup of Hot Toddy? Don’t get me wrong, I’ll take a hot toddy any day! I bet though it tastes much better without suffering from a cold.
Why Aloe Vera Juice?
Aloe vera supports gastrointestinal health, digestion and immunity, and promotes health and wellbeing. If you are running for your life very time someone sneezes, aloe vera is what you need!
Here are 8 health benefits of drinking aloe vera juice!
If your digestive system isn’t operating well, you won’t absorb all of the nutrients from the food you’re eating (or the supplements you’re taking!). Your gut is your brain, it must be taken care of! As Aloe vera contains several enzymes known to help in the breakdown of sugars and fats, it will keep your digestion running smoothly. The juice may help to calm the effects of IBS and even in some cases, with IBD. Make sure though to read the ingredients list! As the inner leaf juice will help, the outside won’t! When in doubt, stick to the recognized brand.
Drinking plenty of fluids daily can help you stay hydrated, and aloe vera juice is a low-calorie alternative to sugary drinks and fruit juices. Make sure thought to check the label for added sugar and other ingredients. Always look out for the purest aloe vera juice from the inner leaf!
Did you ever try a detox? When it comes to getting rid of the toxins, healthy liver function is key. The pure aloe vera works wonders to keep your liver healthy. Your liver functions best when the body is well nourished and hydrated. Aloe vera juice is ideal for the liver because it’s hydrating and rich in phytonutrients.
Aloe vera juice is packed with nutrients. What does it contain? Vitamins B, C, E, and folic acid and mounts of calcium, copper, chromium, sodium, selenium, magnesium, potassium, manganese and zinc. Aloe vera is one of the only plant sources of vitamin B-12, too. This is excellent news for vegetarians and vegans.
Vitamin C is vital for our overall health, as it is a natural antioxidant and helps fight inflammation. While the vitamin is naturally present in such foods as oranges, grapefruit, green peppers, broccoli, and tomato juice, fortified aloe vera juice is another excellent source. Vitamin C will reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and improve your immune system function. Getting enough vitamin C also enhances the body’s ability to absorb iron from plant-based foods.
Do you remember the aloe plant on the window at your grandmother’s house? And your grandma rubbing the aloe leaf on the cuts and bruises? It’s not the easiest walking around with an aloe plant; get a gel instead. Use aloe vera as makeup primer (apply before foundation), makeup remover, sunburn soother, lightweight moisturizer, treatment for irritated scalp (mix in a few drops of peppermint oil) and all sorts of treatment for irritated skin.
Keeping your gums in tip top shape
If you have sensitive teeth or your gums bleed after brushing, time to switch to aloe vera tooth gel. Use aloe vera’s antimicrobial and antibacterial properties to help with the inflammation.
For skin care
The aloe vera is truly a nature’s miracle. Hydrating aloe vera juice may help reduce the frequency and appearance of acne as well as other skin conditions like psoriasis and dermatitis. It’s a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins that may help protect your skin. Did you know your skin also acts as the first barrier in your immune system? Make sure to keep in tip top shape; try a soothing Epsom salt bath, followed by a good spray of aloe vera all over your body.
