Health Benefits of Aloe Vera Juice

The Juice of Aloe Vera

 

Aaaarrgh! First of all….what is up with the gas prices? Seriously?!!! I know it’s starting to come down but not enough. And I will continue to purchase organic because if you don’t, then you put yourself at risk due to chemicals and such, and have to continuously see a doctor. Either way, you will spend. The question is just, how are you going to spend it and when? Anyway, I am now inculcating Aloe Vera juice to my diet, and alternating between Noni and Aloe Juice. Life is one huge fight, and if you are not fighting….you’re DEAD. So it is best to roll with the punches and continue to look on the bright side. All of us must be ready for a game of Chess. So, I have known of the benefits of Aloe Vera juice since I was a little girl, but didn’t really drink it much. My aunt even gave me an aloe vera plant and had me promise I would take care of it, etc. Since I have started drinking aloe vera juice, I have noticed that at times it seems as if my voice is trying to come back! Anyway, I feel that since my new doctor said there isn’t anything wrong with my vocal cords, then in my opinion I should get my voice back soon. It just seems logical to me. Mainly, I still sound like the shrimp in the Sharktale movie. That or Mickey Mouse….(sigh) I know,  it’s a little softer and squeakier though. I have major business plans and this hurts!! I do not suppose to start speech or vocal therapy until the end of this month, and haven’t started the antacid medication yet. Maybe I won’t need all that. We’ll see. I must mention that both of these juices may be hard to stomach for some. Meaning you may need to mix it with a sweeter juice. I am not mixing it because I want it to be the purest possible going down, so hopefully it will quickly knockout whatever the problem is.

Also, I purchased a product called, Green Vibrance. It has plenty of vitamins, mineral, veggies, and antioxidants. It also has probiotics of 25 billion of 12 strains. The probiotics I was taking had 50 billion of 10 strains. Due to the potency of the Green Vibrance, I won’t take any other probiotics or vitamins while taking it. However, I am debating on whether or not I should take Green Vibrance with the Noni and Aloe Vera juice. Yeah. You know, I am going to end up killing over from too many vitamins in my system…wouldn’t that be messed up? But I have to fix this, now is the time to become vitamilistic – okay so I made that one up.

I previously blogged about the benefits of Noni Juice, so what are the benefits of Aloe Vera juice?

 

Nutrients of Aloe Vera Juice

In addition to being highly valuable in health benefits, the composition of aloe vera juice is interesting in that it cannot easily be duplicated in a lab. The power of aloe vera juice doesn’t come from one or two particular nutrients, but from its total combination of minerals and vitamins. Aloe vera contains protein, zinc, magnesium, calcium, germanium, amino acids, essential fatty acids and enzymes, and vitamins A, C, E, and B12. Personally, I was shocked to find that Aloe Vera contains protein!

 

Detoxification

Similar to the anti-bacterial properties that aloe vera offers the skin as a topical treatment, aloe vera juice is highly effective as an internal body cleanser. It detoxifies unhealthy cell matter in the stomach, kidneys, spleen, liver, bloodstream, and bladder. It is best known, however, for its ability to clean out the colon. HerbWisdom.com identifies aloe vera juice as the finest known colon cleanser. Other sources say that aloe vera juice can actually halt colon cancer. I am pretty certain you may need to drink more than the recommended dose, as to how much is still in question.

Immune System Benefits

The vitamins, mineral, and enzymes of aloe vera juice help in strengthening the immune system, which not only helps battle existing viruses and diseases, but helps resist the contraction of new ones. Aloe vera’s anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties help sustain the immune system. Also, an extract of aloe vera, called carrisyn, helps stimulate the production of infection-fighting blood cells. The United States Food and Drug Administration approved aloe vera for HIV treatment in 1994, since it stimulates white blood cell production and fights viruses and tumors when taken in high doses.

 

Digestive System Benefits

Aloe vera juice helps the functioning of the digestive tract, relieving intestinal or stomach problems. Its healing and soothing benefits alleviate ulcers and other problems with stomach distress. Aloe vera is also used to ease heartburn, diverticular disorders, Crohn’s disease, colitis and other types of digestive upset, and reduce the secretion of stomach juices that cause digestive upset. The juice also improves and eliminates constipation. If taken daily, aloe vera aids overall digestion to ensure its smooth and proper functioning.

 

Circulatory Improvements

Aloe vera juice improves circulation with vitamin C, which promotes healthy circulation and maintains the tone of blood vessels, and germanium, which aids circulatory disturbances. Other components help dilate the capillaries and support new cell growth. Aloe vera juice also regulates blood consistency, which affects circulation, as the juice helps repair and replace unhealthy, abnormal cells with healthy ones, preventing thick “sludge” blood. High blood pressure contributes to poor circulation, and aloe vera juice reduces high blood pressure by boosting blood oxygenation, and offering therapeutic benefits that protect the body from oxidative stress. Some components of aloe vera juice help the metabolism of carbohydrates, protein, and fat, preventing a buildup of fat in the arteries. This benefit contributes to improved circulation, but also to preventing cardiac arrest.

 

Anti-inflammatory Aid

Aloe vera’s anti-inflammatory properties work just as well on the inside of the body as they do outside of the body, on the skin. Aloe vera juice promotes the healing of bones and joints, reducing swelling caused by arthritis, in addition to healing internal tissue damage.

 

Aloe’s Aid in Other Health Conditions

HerbWisdom.com reports that a lab study conducted at the University of San Antonio in 1997 revealed that daily intake of aloe vera reduces the risk of leukemia, kidney disease, and heart disease. Aloe vera juice is also used to help treat and heal asthma, prevents kidney stones, and stabilize blood sugar levels for diabetics. It is used to prevent and treat candida infections, hemorrhoids, insomnia, vaginitis and leg cramps.

 

 

****A little exercise update****

At 5’9″ and 130 pounds, I have decided to start a vigorous post surgery exercise routine. I have started dancing more, incline brisk walking on the treadmill and up/down hills at local parks etc.  Although I am not going to weight lift just yet, I will start running soon and may start a blog or page about my latest agenda. I am not doing this in order to lose weight. Exercise is not just about losing weight.
