How Aloe Vera Juice can help your Digestion
Aloe vera is a plant species with several medicinal and nutritional uses. Believe it or not, there are over 300 species of aloe vera, but the most common is Aloe Barbadensis Miller. It has thick leaves that are plumped with watery gel on the inside.
Aloe vera is widely used by many people in gel form to treat burns and wounds. The green part of the leaf and the yellow juice around the lining of the leaf can also be used in juice. Aloe vera juice is slowly becoming more popular due to its wide range of benefits!
Why is it important to look after your digestive system?
The digestive system plays a major role in your overall health as it brings nutrients to your body from food and allows your body to thrive. Bad digestive health can cause uncomfortable symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, indigestion, and more. It can also impact your overall health and wellbeing. Aloe vera juice can help to combat some of these digestive problems. Here’s how!
How Aloe Vera Juice can help with your Digestion
1. Treating constipation
Aloe vera juice can be used as a natural laxative for people who experience constipation. The outer portion of the plant contains compounds called anthraquinone glycosides, and these have a laxative effect that help to relieve constipation. Aloe vera juice is also high in fibre and boosts the water content in your intestines, which also helps with constipation.
2. Can help the breakdown of sugars & fats
Aloe vera contains enzymes that can help with the breakdown of sugars and fats, which can help your digestion system run smoothly.
3. It has anti-inflammatory properties and is full of nutrients
Aloe vera juice is also full of nutrients. It helps to maintain the ‘good’ bacteria in your gut to keep your gut flora balanced. Aloe vera juice contains many important vitamins, such as vitamins B, C, E, and folic acid. Vitamin C is anti-inflammatory, which can help with digestion, as well as reducing bloating.
4. Preventing stomach ulcers
Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, specifically from the vitamin C content, aloe vera juice can reduce irritation in the stomach and intestines, such as stomach ulcers or gastrointestinal inflammation.
How to consume Aloe Vera Juice for a Healthy Digestion
Decolorized (purified) whole leaf aloe vera is considered completely safe – this applies to most Aloe Vera juices in the market. However, non-decolorized, unpurified aloe vera juice may have unpleasant side effects when consumed in larger quantities. If you are tying aloe vera juice for the first time, you may wish to start with a small serving, usually 1 cup or 8 ounces (oz) of juice per day. Aloe vera juice should be consumed in small portions, because in excess, it could cause diarrhea.
