Aloe Vera Juice

Aloe vera is grown in most of the tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world and holds a special place in the traditional Chinese, Middle Eastern and Indian herbal medicine.

Also called as the ‘Lily of the Desert’, aloe vera contains about 200 biologically active components including essential vitamins (A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, and E), minerals (magnesium, iron, calcium, zinc, choline, selenium, and potassium) and amino acids.

Energy replenishment, skin injuries, burns, acne, acid reflux—name a condition, and you will find its cure in this amazing plant! The gel of aloe vera plant can be made into a clear juice which when had twice a day can save you from the health issues, and make your skin better.

It also contains minerals such as germanium, iron, and copper; all of which have healing properties. What’s more, the continous use of this juice helps trigger detoxification reaction in the body. If you are not fond of the bland taste of this juice, you can mix it with different special ingredients like citrus and herbs to churn out the best from them. Plus, the excessive presence of vitamin C in the citrus fruits enhances the iron absorption in the body.

Aloe vera also has anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties. Plus, the presence of polysaccharides and antioxidants in this plant helps provide immune-boosting benefits. Drinking aloe juice regularly is heart friendly too, because of the presence of B-sitosterol that prevents the cholesterol absorption in the system and aids in the lowering of triglyceride levels. Aloe vera also has strong laxative properties that work wonders when you are suffering from constipation.

Taste the Rainbow

Taste the rainbow. What do I mean? No, not the pack of juicy Skittles candy that we all secretly love even at our age! 😋 I am just reminding myself (and my readers), to make simple adjustment to eat MORE real food daily and you will see difference in your gut health, skin, hair, moods, sleep, headaches etc. If you do this for 30 days, your body will crave the fresh fruit and vegetables and not the over processed crap. Pringles tastes like cardboard now to me. I never thought i would see one my kids eat raw sliced bell peppers (red, green, yellow) for a snack! They beg for fruits when we go grocery shopping! They used to beg for Nutella, Doritos, McVites, all kinds of cookies, well you get the picture. Honestly, change can happen if you try! Parents stay strong and change for your home will come! Eat well. Play Alot. Live long. Take care of yourself and others. Xoxo Patty
