The Benefits Of Aloe Vera

You’ve probably heard of aloe vera as a powerful substance to relieve sunburn and small injuries, but aloe vera is much more than a nice houseplant that can help sunburn. It holds powerful benefits for your entire body and overall health from digestion to oral health.

In this article, you will learn what aloe vera is, why and how you should use it and what benefits it can provide. You will find delicious recipes to try and answers to any questions you may have. Most importantly, you will find one of the most powerful ways to use aloe vera to benefit your health (hint: it’s Organifi Pure!).

What Is Aloe Vera?

Aloe vera is a succulent plant dating back to Ancient Egypt. It is native to North Africa, Southern Europe and the Canary Islands, but today it is grown in tropical climates and used as a houseplant worldwide.

Aloe vera gel has been known to be a wonderful topical remedy, relieving sunburns and helping wound recovery. Research has shown that aloe vera has more benefits than just remedying injuries and skin problems, but can also be used internally for various ailments, including digestive troubles.

Aloe vera gel looks like a colorless gel. It tastes watery, a bit bitter with a sweet tinge at the end. Some love it, while for others, it is an acquired taste. Mixed in with juices, smoothies, and food, you won’t notice any aloe vera taste at all.

Why Should I Use Aloe Vera?

Aloe vera is a simple and natural way to support your health, particularly your digestion, blood sugar levels and skin.

Among superfoods, it’s one of the easiest to find and use.

Aloe vera is an easily available plant that you can even keep in your house.

You can find aloe vera leaves sold individually at grocery stores, ethnic supermarkets and health food stores. They are affordable and a large leaf can go a long way.

Aloe vera can also be found in a supplement form or as a part of powerful superfood products, such as Organifi Pure.

  • Heartburn relief: According to a 2010 study, 1-3 ounces of aloe vera taken before a meal can reduce heartburn and GERD symptoms.

How Should I Use Aloe Vera?
