Aloe vera is a succulent plant that has been used for centuries for its various health benefits. There are so many wonderful benefits of this medical plant but we thought we would share a few with you!
1. Skin health: Aloe vera is commonly used in skincare products due to its soothing and moisturizing properties. It may help with conditions like dry skin, acne, sunburn, and minor wounds. I like to lather it on my face straight from an aloe leaf after the sun for some on-the-spot care!
2. Digestive support: Aloe vera juice or supplements may help improve digestion and relieve symptoms of conditions like acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and constipation. Try our Aloe Vera Drink or try adding it into one of our smoothies to add these benefits to your liquids routine!
3. Anti-inflammatory properties: Aloe vera contains compounds that have anti-inflammatory effects. It may help reduce inflammation in the body, both internally and externally.
4. Immune system support: Aloe vera is rich in antioxidants, which can help support a healthy immune system and protect against free radicals.
5. Wound healing: Aloe vera gel has traditionally been used to promote wound healing and reduce the risk of infection.
6. Oral health: Some studies suggest that aloe vera can help reduce plaque buildup, gum inflammation, and provide relief from mouth ulcers.
With the wealth of benefits supplied by aloe vera, no wonder we love it so much. Give it a try and let us know what you think! 🙂
