How to benefit from aloe vera
Aloe vera is a plant that has been used for thousands of years for natural healing. Aloe vera has been hailed as a natural anti-inflammatory. This is great news for those who have pain in their bodies caused from inflammation.
Aloe has a great source of B-vitamins along with several of the minerals that we lack in our diets. Some of the minerals include calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, iron, copper, and potassium.
Another way to benefit from aloe vera is it helps the body absorb more vitamins and minerals. Aloe also is high in antioxidants that can help protect against disease and ageing. Aloe also strengthens immune function.
Aloe is a source of amino acids and helps accelerate skin repair. Aloe boosts oxygenation of blood so may protect against heart disease. It also helps alkalize the body. I have always read that disease can not thrive in that alkaline environment.
I have personally used aloe to help with an intestinal issue I was dealing with and it relieved the issue. Aloe has been know for its healing effect on our digestive tract.
Another way to benefit from aloe vera is by using it to detox. It is said to lubricate the digestive tract and rid the body of intestinal worms. It also deceases the unfriendly bacteria and balances intestinal flora.
I have always read that you need a healthy gut to be healthy. For those looking for weight loss when you eliminate properly and rid the body of toxins you will lose weight.
I have read that it is not safe to use when pregnant and you only need around 2-4 ounces a day for health benefits. It is a powerful plant and a little goes a long way. I have only used it for a few weeks at a time and not as a daily routine.
I do use it topically though as often as needed and it works great. I just used it for sunburn and I find it to be the most effective thing I have used for burns.
I buy a plant and cut it open and apply the gel directly to my skin. I also put it on my scalp and it helped the sunburn. I heard it works great as a natural hair gel also. It is so soothing on the skin. The photo credit goes to plant care today.
