The Miraculous Health Benefits of Aloe Vera


Aloe vera is perhaps the most genuine and versatile cure-all plant there is, offering a plethora of health benefits - the word 'vera' after
all, does mean true or genuine. In the past, it was considered to be the plant of immortality by the Egyptians, and has been used since
time immemorial for its soothing and curing properties.
The Aloe vera plant is luscious with thick, fleshy stems and spiny leaves. The plant's miraculous benefits are located within the stems,
which contain aloe juice and gel - a substance that is used in numerous medicinal, cosmetic, and health treatments.
Aloe vera juice can be bought (preferably organic, and pure) from a health shop or a well-stocked supermarket. Alternatively, if you've
got a couple of plants at home, you can just as easily make your own juice.
Making Aloe Vera Juice
Cut and open a few stems of the plant from the middle section. Opt for the outer stems as they are the most mature, and have the
highest concentration of antioxidants.
Upon squeezing the stem, aloe gel will ooze out. Store it in a bowl, then put the gel in a blender and add 1 cup of water.
To get pure aloe vera juice, blend the ingredients and consume within 3-4 days, before it loses its antioxidants.
What Makes Aloe Vera so Nutritious?
Aloe vera (both juice and gel) is packed with antioxidants and antibiotics and works as stimulators of cell growth. It also has scar and
pain inhibitor properties. The entire leaf is at times used to treat ulcerative colitis, metastatic cancer, infectious disease and
chemotherapy treatment. The plant is also rich in the following vitamins and minerals, making it a highly nutritious ingredient.
