Most of us are familiar with Aloe Vera as the slimy green substance used to slather on sunburnt limbs, yet the unfiltered Forever Living Aloe Vera Gel has long been favoured by the natural-minded for its vast array of health benefits.
The rich cocktail of pulp and liquid is as close as you can get to drinking the natural juice straight from an aloe vera leaf, and contains more than 200 compounds that will help maintain a healthy digestive system and a natural energy level. Take it daily either alone or mixed into pure fruit juice for the ultimate good-for-you health drink. Still not convinced? Here are five reasons to add it to your shopping list.
1. Aloe Vera cleanses and supports your digestive system, helping you beat the bloat.
2. It is rich in minerals, vitamins and amino acids to keep energy levels up all day.
3. There are naturally occurring adaptogens in Aloe Vera, which boost the body’s natural ability to resist illness.
4. It's also alkaline, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory – all great for hydrating and repairing skin.
5. And...Aloe Vera is a potent anti-oxidant that can aid weight loss.
