Lately, there has been a lot of buzz about aloe vera in its drinkable form. As a Mom of four I have relied on aloe vera in its topical form for sunburns, cuts, blisters, and bug bites, but had never heard of drinking aloe vera juice and the many benefits of its internal application. So I decided to do some research.
Aloe Vera, also called the elixir of youth, is an herb which contains 20 minerals, including calcium, magnesium, zinc, chromium and selenium, vitamins A,B,C,E and folic acid and 20 of the 22 essential amino acids, and over 200 active ingredients including polysaccharides and enzymes
Tummy trouble? Aloe vera to the rescue! Aloe vera can soothe the digestive tract as well. Just make sure to follow the dosing direction on the back of the container as it can have a laxative effect if too much is ingested.
Taken orally aloe is very helpful in reducing internal problems such as heartburn, arthritis and rheumatism pain and asthma. Studies have also shown that it has an effect on lowering blood sugar levels in diabetics. Aloe also helps fight congestion, intestinal worms, indigestion, stomach ulcers, colitis, hemorrhoids, liver problems such as cirrhosis and hepatitis, kidney infections, urinary tract infections and prostate problems.
Some of the Anti-Aging benefits of Aloe when used as a dietary supplement:
1) It boosts the immune system
2) It accelerates metabolism
3) It purifies the human body from toxins
4) It has an antiseptic effect (by destroying bacteria, viruses and fungi)
5) It stimulates the cell-renewing process
Sounds to good to be true! I might have to start drinking this stuff by the gallon...serious anti-aging cocktail here! Just be sure to purchase a high quality brand that carries the certified whole leaf aloe seal. Pregnant women should not take aloe internally as it may bring on uterine contractions.
