Aloe Vera is a powerful healing plant that has been used for centuries. The Egyptians called it “the plant of immortality” due to the numerous health benefits it offers. The gel can heal minor cuts and wounds and can also be used against numerous diseases and conditions. The gel contains more than 200 amino acids, enzymes, polysaccharides, vitamins and minerals which can significantly improve your overall health.
Fresh Aloe gel is an antibacterial and antifungal agent that can destroy microorganisms easily and clean the body of toxins. It can also strengthen your immune system and accelerate your metabolism, effectively boosting the weight loss process. Enzymes such as lipase and amylase that can be found in the gel can breakdown fats and sugars in the body and reduce inflammation, in that way preventing a variety of health problems.
The Aloe Vera plant contains a lot of vitamin B12 which is important for red blood cell production. This makes it great for vegetarians and vegans who often lack the nutrient due to the lack of meat in their diet. Aloe Vera also contains twenty essential amino acids which the body needs to function properly. Studies have shown that fresh Aloe gel can also eliminate excess plaque from the teeth and resolve many oral problems.
In general, the gel works best when taken undiluted, but many people like to add a bit of fruit juice due to the bitter taste. The Aloe gel can be found in most health stores, but it’s best to extract it from your own plant. The plant can be easily grown and will clean the air in your home, while also providing you with a steady supply of its wonderful gel.
