Drinking Aloe Vera Juice Aids Digestion

One of the most common modern uses for the aloe vera plant is as a healing agent to burns, cuts, or other wounds, and to reduce the severity of scarring. Aloes are some of the most healing plants found in nature, and are considered to be in the bitter category of herbs, and is a cathartic herb, helping to evacuate the bowels. If you're not already aware of the fact that you can take aloe internally, check for some in your local health food store. It's not particularly a tasty drink, but the benefits are simply incredible, and aloes contain a large variety of amino acids, vitamins, minerals and enzymes. When taking aloes, it is beneficial to either drink it either an hour or two before your first meal, or just before bedtime. Since it has such a positive effect on the digestive system, it is an excellent remedy for irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS. It promotes regularity, prevents and relieves constipation, and is an excellent laxative.

Aloe is one of the best herbs to clean out the colon. It should be considered superior to over-the-counter (OTC) laxatives, which can have a much harsher result and could even disrupt your day with their unpredictable effects. Aloe is a much gentler method of relieving your symptoms. Aloe is also an excellent alternative to OTC "colon cleanse" concoctions, as aloe works naturally to gently break down impacted food residues and morbid matter from the stomach, liver, kidneys, spleen, bladder and colong, thoroughly cleansing the bowels. A toxic colon is the cause of a wide variety of illnesses. Since this process helps to reduce intestinal bloating, as the symptoms are eased the stress and discomfort subside as well.

  1. Glad to hear you’re all enjoying it! As for the aloe, I buy 100% pure aloe vera as well, and I keep it in the fridge. Like I said before, I have never had a problem, and I always keep mine in a jar, too. It is way to thick to put in a pump. I like to use amber or cobalt colored jars to keep the sunlight out. I’ll have to look into the aloe issue some more!
