Aloe Vera Juice – Hidden Health
How many of us have a pokey little cactus looking plant in
our yard or in a flowerpot?
Aloe Vera plants can be a lifesaver when it comes to
sunburns, insect bites, or burns from kitchen mishaps. Just cut
a piece off your plant, and rub the gel on the irritated or
painful area, and relief is at hand!
Not only does it immediately help relieve pain, but aloe
vera is said to help reduce scaring and facilitate healing.
It’s also a great moisturizer…
I mean we see it in about every lotion or skin and hair care
product on the market.
Now, we all know these uses, but have you ever imagined
drinking the juice from an aloe vera plant?
I never had until recently. However, it turns
out that there are many, many important health benefits that
aloe vera juice may
I found out about it not long ago when I saw gallons of aloe
vera juice at a health food store. When I asked about it, I
found out some pretty interesting things.
First, in addition to the obviously well known uses in
lotions and the plant itself for scrapes, burns, and skin
irritations, aloe vera is also very helpful in the following
Immune support and function. Aloe Vera juice/gel contains
natural immune supporters and also supplies the body with
around the clock, extra resources to help the body keep its
immune system humming along and in fighting off intruders.
Helps regulate weight and energy levels. Aloe Vera, used
regularly helps cleanse the digestive system, facilitating a
cleaner system that allows for higher energy levels. Higher
energy levels in turn facilitates healthy and natural weight
Collagen repair. Because the skin replenishes itself every
21-28 days, regular use of aloe vera offers the essential
building blocks to help overall skin health.
Daily dose of vitamins. Aloe Vera contains Vitamins A, B1,
B2, B6, B12, C and E, Folic Acid and Niacin. Since the body
cannot store some of these vitamins and since our normal eating
habits do not provide a lot of live and whole foods in our
diet, a daily dose of aloe vera may really enhance the vitamin
supply to our bodies.
Daily dose of minerals. Calcium, sodium, iron, potassium,
chromium, magnesium, manganese, copper, and zinc, are some of
the essential minerals that aloe vera contains. Imagine being
able to get all the other health benefits plus a daily dose of
Anti-inflammatory properties. Aloe vera gel and juices have
been shown to have 12 natural substances that help inhibit
inflammation without any side effects. This is excellent news
and shows that aloe vera may help support those with joint and
Helps regulate normal blood sugar. There is research showing
aloe vera is helping to regulate normal blood sugar while
cleansing the internal organs.
These are just a few of the benefits of Aloe Vera;
some others include digestive system health, dental hygiene
improvement, and more.
When I found out this information, I was pretty
impressed. However, I was also thinking – how does this
Well, quite honestly it is not the best-tasting stuff in the
world. It’s one of those things you kind of just deal with.
Straight aloe vera juice or gel just doesn’t taste good to say
the least, and there is not a lot you can do with the taste to
fix this fact.
However, I did find that one of the “super food” drinks that
are full of antioxidants and other healthy whole foods, also
contains aloe vera in it and it also tastes really good, plus
it has even more benefits than just aloe vera gel by
