Who knew aloe was an external and INTERNAL natural healing superpower plant. Not only does it soothe the skin after a sunburn, reduce dark spots but it also helps to relieve intestinal damage from oxidative stress. The enzymes, vitamins, acids, and other properties found in the aloe plant's gel help fight skin infection, reduce redness and external & internal inflammation.
The aloe has nourishing properties unparalleled by anything else in the plant world. It’s promotion of rapid cell regeneration helps to heal wounds, rashes, fungal infections (which are common in the gut) and all types of skin problems.
Why Aloe Juice Works for Restoring Gut Health
As the Modern Day Mom continues to live in a chronic state of stress, she puts a tremendous amount of oxidative stress on her gut’s integrity. When the gut lining starts to break down the immune system is suppressed (70% of the immune system is housed in the gut), digestive enzymes stop releasing and nutrient absorption is compromised.
Common symptoms I hear from my clients and symptoms I’ve personally dealt with are gas and bloating. Aloe can provide a soothing relief from these digestive distress issues. It nourishes the intestinal lining and promotes easy elimination without pain or excess acidity.
Aloe Vera juice is rich in enzymes that help break down food and increase assimilation. Lack of enzymes is one of the main contributors of gut dysfunction which I discuss in length in my program Restore Your Gut Health. Aloe Vera also has pre-biotic compounds that help feed healthy bacteria in the gut and is known to help 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 folic acid as well as minerals and contains nearly all the essential amino acids.
It’s easy to use aloe in your gut restoring journey. You can buy a powder and make juice or start growing your own organic aloe plant. If you’re not great at keeping plants alive no worries! The aloe plant is hardy and low maintenance. 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. Or you can purchase one of my favorite aloe powders Organic Aloe Vera Digestion, Click Categories -> Click Restore Gut Health -> Click Organic Aloe Vera Digestion.
Holistic health doesn’t get much easier than aloe vera.
