It’s practically becoming common knowledge that Aloe has amazing benefits for digestive health—but what exactly does that mean?
After all; our digestive tracts are intensely complicated systems with numerous corresponding organs and functions—each of which must be taken into account when treating a single portion of the system.
Yet somehow; despite the fact that it wasn’t concocted by experts in a lab, all-natural aloe seems to offer a raft of diverse digestive benefits—unrivaled by anything else ever created or discovered.
So how exactly does Aloe “help?”
Today we’re going to answer that question by looking into the details of exactly how Aloe works in your digestive system; the mechanisms that make it work, where to use it best, and how you can get the absolute most out of aloe vera on a daily basis.
So let’s get started …
Improving Digestive Processes
Aloe vera is simply packed with useful vitamins and minerals in a highly-soluble and highly-effective form. When combined with eight of the key enzymes the plant also contains (like alkaline, phosphatase and cellulose), you get a potent cocktail that helps immensely with basic digestive processes.
The plant’s enzymes help your body break down sugars and fats for improved nutrient absorption, while its anti-inflammatory properties can help soothe upset stomachs or symptoms of acid reflux and Irritiable Bowel Syndrome (or IBS).
When ingested orally (especially as a gel) aloe can also help to detoxify your digestive tract. As it passes through your body, the aloe will absorb toxins and waste matter that can often adhere to intestinal walls—even ensuring that fecal matter is removed expediently.
Detoxifying the digestive tract helps build a foundation for healthier digestive processes well into the future. The end result is a cleaner, healthier overall digestive tract—with the nutrition it needs to break down and absorb nutrients expediently, then get rid of the waste just as efficiently.
An Easy Solution for Uncomfortable Digestive Issues
So as you can see, aloe vera is an ideal solution to keep your digestive system healthy … but what about when it’s not healthy in the first place?
Well, the same nutrients that can aid in digestion can also aid in cases of constipation—making aloe a very effective laxative in many situations. Aloe can also help prevent stomach infections and even treat intestinal worms, thanks to the plant’s strong nematidal (worm-killing) activity and its ability to maintain the balance of natural flora within your stomach.
Aloe is a very potent adaptogen, meaning it can help the body deal with stress and acclimatize to changes in diet and health. Research from Queen Mary School of Medicine and Dentistry in London used aloe to treat patients suffering from Ulcerative Colitis (a very serious digestive disease), and found that 70% of patients actually showed signs of improvement based on a simple regime of aloe treatments.
Lower Cholesterol and A Healthier Immune System
Ultimately, all these different benefits start to add up synergistically, leading to an even more profound effect on your lasting health …
Like—for example—the way aloe vera can help lower your cholesterol levels and improve lasting heart health. According to a recent study from the British Medical Journal, aloe is packed with a compound known as “beta sitosterol,” that helps reduce cholesterol levels. It also contains a variety of fatty acids that aid in the breakdown of fats in the body; helping to lower cholesterol even further.
By reducing risk factors and helping to regulate blood pressure, aloe vera ultimately paves the way to lasting, all-natural heart health. And that’s not all either—
Because aloe is also rich in monosaccharides and polysaccharides; compounds that can work together and boost your immune system by strengthening white blood cells and empowering them to fight off the bacteria and viruses that cause regular illness.
The Ultimate “Wonder-Drug”
(has been Sitting on Your Countertop All Along)
In a world where big Pharma companies market increasingly expensive “treatments” for problems we’d rather solve, aloe vera’s effectiveness is a refreshing reminder that some things don’t have to be complicated.
Regardless of your situation or particular illness, it’s quite likely that aloe could aid in improving your digestive health in any number of ways—you just have to try it out.
