I had no idea...
I have a very sensitive stomach. For whatever reason, it gets upset easily and my digestive track seems to be more and more in a mess. Typically, my stomach is where I hold my stress, anxieties, etc., plus I'm a runner. And I used to rack up a good 53 miles a week (that is until I found yoga). Along with telling me not to run so much, my friend advised me to go to the health foods store and pick up some aloe vera juice for my stomach. We have all heard of the benefits of aloe gel and most often we associate it with healing our sunburns, but drinking it? I thought how weird... that is until I started reading about the benefits of drinking this magic juice, and although I don't love the taste, it is quickly becoming something that I consume everyday. I have learned that aloe vera helps to dilate capillaries, support cell growth- which helps improve circulation. It is also an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent, helping to prevent the onset of disease. It is also said that the juice provides support in weight loss and muscle development.
Sounds like a miracle doesn't it? I had NO idea, so I thought I would share my new-found knowledge with all of you. Just in case ya didn't already know!
This "harmony remedy" really does an incredible job restoring the body on all levels. If you find yourself wandering the aisles of Whole Foods or any other health foods store, or if you want to order it online, I recommend it.
Thank you to my wonderful, friend/advisor : )
PS I drink Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Juice, that I bought at Whole Foods but their are tons of options out there.
