This may surprise you…
Nature, in its infinite beauty, gives us plants that are not only beautiful but powerful. One of these such plants is the Aloe Vera plant. Its healing properties have been documented as far back as 2100 BC. And we’ve all heard of Egyptian queens extolling aloe’s beauty benefits. Whether used topically or ingested, there’s no denying aloe’s profound impact on beauty and health. Here are just a few of Aloe Vera’s alluring benefits…
BREATHE WITH EASE WITH ALOE LEAVES
Whether you suffer with chronic asthma, are struggling with a cold, or just want to clear those nasal passageways, this is a sure-fire way to get you breathing with ease again. Just cut off a few aloe leaves and let boil gently in a pan of water. Breathing in the vapor from the aloe will help open up and clear your bronchial and nasal passageways.
NO MORE ITCH
Many who suffer with psoriasis, hives and other skin irritations, can find great relief with Aloe Vera gel. Simply cut an aloe leaf and apply the gel found inside directly to your skin. Repeat a few times a day. It will help soothe these painful and irritating conditions and leave your skin soft to boot.
THE SUPER SUPPLEMENT
Thanks to Aloe Vera’s extensive nutrients such as Vitamins A, B, C, E, minerals, plant sterols and enzymes, it is a fantastic immunity booster. So it’s highly effective at keeping colds and flu at bay. It’s also a great energy booster thanks to its high levels of B vitamins. And it has also been found to help lower blood sugar levels which contributes to a healthy body weight.
SAY HELLO TO ALOE AND GOODBYE TO WRINKLES
Cleopatra was definitely onto something. Applying Aloe Vera gel directly to the skin has both a smoothing and tightening effect. And, according to experts in dermatology, taking Aloe Vera supplements could help reduce the appearance of wrinkles by boosting collagen levels and improving skin’s elasticity.
INTRODUCE SOME JUICE
Drinking a little Aloe Vera juice every day can help reduce the pain and inflammation of arthritic joints. You can also add ginger and apple cider for amplified effect.
And if your digestion is out of whack, a little Aloe Vera juice can soothe your digestive tract and restore bowel regularity.
So, isn’t it about time you include a bit of Aloe in your day? Your whole body will thank you for it.
