Aloe-vera is Called Adaptogen (Part 2)


Reduce Inflammation

Aloe vera contains 12 substances which slow down or inhibit inflammation, without any side-effects. Many people say that taking aloe vera juice helps with their stiff, swollen or painful joints.

Healthy Skin

Taking aloe vera supplements adds a rich supply of raw materials to your diet, which can produce and maintain really healthy skin. The skin replaces itself every 28 days. Using the nutritional building blocks of aloe vera, the skin can use these nutrients daily to help combat the effects of ageing.

Aloe vera also helps in soothing minor burns, cuts, scrapes and skin irritations.

Regulate Energy Levels

Taking aloe vera allows the body to cleanse the digestive system. Our diets include many substances which can cause fatigue and exhaustion. Taken regularly, aloe vera flushes out these impurities, allowing the body to divert more energy to healing and repair, not just digestion. This ensures a greater feeling of well-being, allowing energy levels to increase and helps maintain a healthy body weight.

Daily Dose of Vitamins & Minerals

Aloe vera contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12 (the aloe vera plant is one of the few plants in the world to contain vitamin B12), C, E, Folic Acid and Niacin. The human body cannot store some of these vitamins, so we need to supplement them regularly through our diet. The minerals found in aloe vera include Calcium, Sodium, Iron, Potassium, Copper, Zinc, Manganese, Magnesium, Chromium and more… Plenty of good nutrition in aloe vera!


Dental Health

Aloe vera is extremely helpful for your mouth and gums. As well as its natural anti-bacterial and anti-microbial actions, it contains vitamins and minerals which promote cell growth and healing. Many people report that aloe vera helps with bleeding gums and mouth ulcers.

Recent research has shown that adding good foods to our diets, rich in naturally occurring vitamins and minerals, is far better than adding supplements alone.

The good news is that Aloe Vera is considered a food, rather than a supplement. So taking aloe vera is probably better than taking supplements alone, because our bodies can absorb all the nutrients in aloe vera more easily, and utilise them more effectively.
