Aloe Vera Juice Benefits – Drink in the glow!
Have you heard of aloe vera juice benefits? You have probably heard of the benefits of applying aloe vera gel topically (externally) such as its ability to help heal burns, wounds and insect bites because of its anti inflammatory properties. It follows that if taken in juice form (internally) then the same beneficial properties can be applied to the body from within.
Where does Aloe Vera juice come from? The Aloe Vera plant is thought to originate from northern africa and the south arabian peninsula. It grows in arid climates and as such has now spread to many parts of the sub tropical region. It is being commercially grown, amongst other places, in central and southern parts of America. The leaves of the plant contain a gel that is extracted from the rind. The rind does not have many obvious benefits. Then the gel is processed to make juice.
Aloe vera juice benefits are potentially endless because it contains many vitamins such as A, B1, B2, B6 and B12, C and E, minerals such as magnesium, sodium, potassium, calcium, iron, copper, chromium, zinc and manganese. It also contains 18 amino acids. In fact 7 of those amino acids are essential amino acids, which means that the body cannot make them itself so it has to derive them from outside sources. The main reason aloe vera works is because it is an adaptogen. This means that it adapts to the needs of the body. Within the body, if a system is hyperfuntioning, it will tone it down and if a system is hypofunctioning, it will strengthen it.
Aloe Vera has anti inflammatory properties. Just as aloe vera relieves swelling when applied topically, it will also relieve inflammation from within when taken as juice. For instance, it has been shown to help relieve pain caused by arthritis. Other diseases that can be inflammatory are digestive problems such as gastro-intestinal problems, irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis. Aloe vera can help dislodge excess food waste that has built up in the intestine and colon. This will help both elimination of that waste that otherwise would be toxic and also aid digestion of new food because the walls of the intestine and colon would be much clearer (the waste would not be there to prevent absorption).
The Aloe Vera plant is an amazing plant that has been used for medicinal purposes as far back as the greeks and romans and the ancient egyptians before them. It has so many benefits that extracts of the plant are included in countless cosmetics, hair and skin care products, creams and lotions. If this is the case, you need to include it in your daily health/beauty regimen. One of the best ways to achieve health and beauty is from the inside out. Let your skin glow! Drink in the benefits!
