The Benefits of Aloe Vera
Its gel contains:
- Vitamins A, C, E (anti-oxidants)
- Minerals: sulfur, calcium,
magnesium, zinc, selenium, chromium
- Amino acids
- Polysaccharides (long chain
carbohydrates that are a rich source of energy, support mental health, joint health,
skin health, nervous and immune systems)
Aloe vera helps with muscle development and
supports a natural loss of excess weight.
Aloe Vera is most effective in relieving digestive conditions (colitis, ulcers,
irritable bowel syndrome) by supporting the cellular synthesis of stomach
and intestinal linings.
Aloe Vera assists in nutrient absorption in
the small intestine and helps control candida populations; it is categorized as
a prebiotic, which is a group of non-digestible long chain starches that
nourish/feed populations of “healthy/good” bacteria.
