The versatile Aloe Vera plant
The Aloe Vera plant has been a popular topical remedy for hundreds of years, and is perhaps best known for its speedy healing of cuts, burns and irritated skin. The leaves contain a thick gel like substance that contains over 70 different healing vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids. Significant advancements in manufacturing techniques mean that the benefits of Aloe Vera can now be enjoyed internally too – helping to heal the body inside and out.
Why take Aloe Vera supplements?
Aloe Vera promotes a healthy intestinal pH, which helps to maintain a friendly environment for ‘good’ bacteria in the gut to flourish. Although Aloe Vera can support health in several different ways, studies have primarily focused on improvements to digestive health and immune support. It may even offer some relief from constipation by soothing the digestive tract.
