Aloe Vera Drinks & Supplements
Aloe Vera is famed for its soothing properties, but it’s not just for sunburn. Research shows Aloe Vera juice supports digestive discomfort and bloating, plus gives gentle bowel motion support. The juice of the Aloe Vera plant also supports a healthy gut lining, protects against oxidative damage, and contains prebiotics which feed the beneficial bacteria that keep our bowel healthy.
What is Aloe Vera?
Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis), is a succulent plant that traditionally grew in sub-tropical regions around the world.
Aloe Vera has a multitude of health benefits, which you can add to your diet in the form of Aloe Vera drinks and capsules, that are made using the clear gel found in the inner leaf. This Aloe Vera gel contains special compounds that help to soothe the mucous membranes that line the digestive tract and support healthy healing and cell renewal for the gut lining.
The Benefits of Aloe Vera
- Both the juice and capsules contain plant antioxidants (aloesins and glycoproteins), which protect against free radical damage and work along with mucilage to protect the gut lining.
- Prebiotic fibre also supports healthy probiotic bacteria for overall gut health. Aloe Vera juice or capsules can gently help to support regular bowel movements, especially for those with a sensitive gut that don’t want a stimulating effect.
- When used on the skin, Aloe Vera gel has been shown to have similar actions as it does internally, making it a popular ingredient in skincare. Taking a Collagen supplement for skin can provide extra support for nurturing skin health.
