I'm in California dreaming about aloe inside me ...
Ha! Adele anyone? Cheesy, I know, but on a serious note, do you even know how beneficial aloe is when taken internally and not just using externally?
I first set out on my research journey to find foods and supplements that will help my blood counts, and some of the top things I kept coming across were chlorophyll, chlorella, and aloe vera juice.
Being the german/irish girl I am, I'm no stranger to aloe vera gel (thanks to sunburns as a child), but I didn't know much about drinking aloe vera juice. Since it was brought up on many natural healing sites, I thought "what the hell, let's try it!"
So off to Whole Foods I went in search of some organic aloe vera juice. Now, I'll admit, when I first tried it, it's got a different/strange taste, that isn't entirely appealing (but that doesn't stop me when it comes to healing), so I do mix it with some organic orange juice or pomegranate juice. Actually, my whole concoction for healing with this juice is typically 6-8 oz of aloe vera juice, some OJ, chlorophyll, liposomal vitamin c, liposomal glutathione and some pomegranate juice, all mixed together. (I'll share more on the liposomal vitamin c and glutathione in another blog post)
If you're unfamiliar (as I was originally) to the benefits of aloe vera juice, some of the top awesome healing properties it offers are:
immune system boost
cleanse the blood
packed with vitamins (C, E, B)
clears the skin
alkalizes your body
helps remove toxins
makes your intestines more "regular"
Overall, aloe vera juice is just another excellent addition to your healing arsenal. I've gotten to where I enjoy my glass each day and it's part of my ritual.
Just another one of our planet's natural healing plants. Time to go plant some aloe so I can grow it myself!
Let me know if you've tried aloe vera juice and what you take it for. What are your results? Leave your answers in the comments below :)
