Aloe vera is known as a medicinal plant. It’s most commonly used as a topical treatment for sunburn, but not very many people know the amazing benefits of drinking the plant’s juice, too. Here are the top three!
Aloe Vera Will Help You Achieve Alkalinity
All life on earth has to maintain a balanced pH level to survive. If the ocean’s pH level drops below 8.1, coral reefs die off. If soil that we plant our food in doesn’t have the right balance of acidity and alkalinity, plants wither and die.
The same is true about the human body. If the body develops an acidic pH, it becomes an environment which breeds disease. Drinking a glass of homemade aloe vera juice each morning will keep rogue cells from evolving into metastatic diseases that then evolve into tumors.
Aloe Vera Will Keep Your Digestive Tract On Track
Digestive issues are serious, and many of us have them unknowingly. A poor running digestive tract will disable the body from absorbing nutrients from food. Aloe vera contains enzymes that break down sugars and fats to cleanse out the digestive tract.
It also heals inflamed stomachs and intestines. Studies show that people with irritable bowel syndrome benefit from drinking aloe vera juice.
Aloe Vera Will Heal Your Skin From Within
Most of us have used aloe vera as a topical relief for sunburn, but drinking it can add more benefits for our skin. Aloe vera juice will hydrate the skin, clear it of acne and reduce skin conditions such as dermatitis and psoriasis.
Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, aloe vera repairs fine lines and wrinkles. It’s at the top of the list of natural anti-aging methods and skin renewal.
How To Make Aloe Vera Juice
You’ll need to buy one aloe vera leaf from the store. When you bring it home, slit the edges and scoop out all of the gel. Then, store your gel in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to make your aloe vera juice, remove your gel from the fridge and blend 2 tsp. of your gel with a cup of water or juice of your choice.
There are some awesome suggestions for juice additives out there, too, so why not get creative? Cheers to a healthier you!
