Do you have an aloe Vera Plant?
I love functional decor. This includes houseplants. Why not grow things that you can use? Aloe Vera is one of my favorites. In the summer it is perfect for sunburns or scrapes or stings as it nourishes your "outer" skin. But did you know that it is also effective internally?
Aloe is a powerful plant. When I used to hear aloe I would automatically think of sunburn relief. In a similar way, aloe helps to relieve intestinal damage. It’s got nourishing properties unparalleled by anything else in the plant world. It’s almost as if aloe vera was made for the human gut. I can’t believe the results that taking aloe juice gave me, and from my experience it’s one of the most transformative supplements for a healthy gut.
Why Aloe Juice one of my Favorite Remedies for the Gut:
Aloe provides soothing relief from digestive distress. 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. This basically eliminated the issues I was having with poor digestion. Aloe vera has prebiotic compounds that help feed healthy bacteria in the gut. It’s also helpful for 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 this common houseplant, you can buy the juice directly, or start growing your own organic aloe. It’s one of the lowest maintenance plants you can get (which is the only reason mine’s still alive). 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.
Holistic health doesn’t get much easier than aloe vera.
Add all ingredients to your blender and process until super smooth.
