USES OF ALOE
What Do You Know About Aloe?
It is very important to explain that the effects of the aloe juice are preserved only if it was properly processed IN COLD (otherwise, all the properties are lost) and stabilized, since with pasteurizing processes it automatically looses all of its properties. For that reason, read products’ labels carefully to make sure that the product is from the Barbadensis Miller variety and to know about the production process.
It must not be drunk by pregnant women and children.. Knowing what to consume is also a way of improving life quality.
¿WHY DOES ALOE VERA HEAL?
Considering the wide varieties of aloe, it is worth mentioning that the Barbadensis Miller, popularly known as aloe vera, is the variety that has been scientifically tested, with positive results for internal (intake) and external use.
Among the most renowned and documented studies, the research conducted by the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine (California, 1985) revealed the beneficial effects of regular consumption of aloe vera (Barbadensis Miller) for the digestive system. The study scientifically established that patients suffering from colitis, heartburn or irritable bowel syndrome,and who consumed juice extracted from the aloe vera leaf on a daily basis experienced considerable improvements.
The aloe vera is a natural anti-inflammatory that favours the recovery of the gastrointestinal tract. It also helps to fight constipation and to clean the bowels, neutralizing heartburns and relieving constipation and gastric ulcers, while restoring fluid levels in the colon and helping to restore millions of cells that are daily regenerated in this organ. When taken orally, it improves the absorption of nutrients obtained from food, directly contributing to nutrition in general and reinforcing the immune system. This also helps to reduce the risk of heart diseases, neutralize free radicals and accelerate the production of new cells and collagen tissues through the cells known as fibroblasts (powerful anti-ageing effect in several tissues, including the skin).
