Aloe Vera for Digestive Health


Do you have digestive issues? A good remedy for those problems is liquid aloe vera. If you have heartburn, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal cramps, ulcers, IBS, Crohn’s Disease, celiac disorder, and other related problems, this natural substance is very healing for those types of problems.

Of course, total healing cannot come without good dietary habits. Eat natural, whole, traditional foods to maintain long-term digestion performance such as grass-fed meats, raw dairy products from grass-fed cows (including cream, milk, cheese, butter, and homemade kefir and yogurt), pasture-raised poultry and eggs, soaked and sprouted nuts and seeds, healthy fats from extra-virgin coconut oil and olive oil, palm oils, flax oils, and healthy-sourced lard and tallow (from grass-fed animals), and organic fruits and vegetables as much as possible.

Benefits of regular aloe vera consumption:

  • Digestion support
  • Immune system support
  • Detoxification
  • Regulates weight and energy levels
  • Daily dose of vitamins and minerals – contains A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E, Folic acid, and Niacin. Also contains calcium, sodium, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper, Zinc, and Chromium.
  • Maintains healthy skin by collagen and elastin repair
  • Reduces body inflammation
  • Good source of amino acids
  • Maintains good dental hygiene
  • Better than supplements because aloe vera is a natural food from a whole food source

Be sure to eliminate the following – refined and artificial sweeteners, processed foods including packaged grain products, pastas, breads, cereals, pasteurized milk, soy, (fake meat products, industrial vegetable oils, and other artificial fats like canola, soybean, corn, and cottonseed oils) alcohol, tobacco, and drugs (over-the-counter, prescription, and illegal).

A great brand of aloe vera which has no bitter taste is George’s. Try this wonderful, healing substance with a good change in diet and you’ll be surprised to see your digestive problems improve dramatically.

Aloe vera should be included as part of a daily regimen of healthy habits and sometimes should be used for a period of time – at least two or three months – before benefits might be noticed.
