Organic Aloe Vera

by Organic Veggies (SG)

The aloe vera plant has prickly and bitter leaves, which hold a gooey translucent gel, widely known for its unbelievable healing properties. This translucent gel is made up of 96% water, some organic and inorganic compounds, a type of protein which contains 18 of the 20 amino acids found in the body and Vitamin A, B, C and E.

One of the most crucial elements found in aloe vera gel is a complex carbohydrate known as acemannan. It allows nutrients to reach the cells, nourish them and at the same time relieve them of toxins. Ayurveda, Chinese herbal medicine and British herbal medicine have all advocated aloe vera as a healer, when applied or consumed orally.

Aloe Vera is rich in Vitamin C, E and beta carotene which gives it its nourishing and anti-ageing qualities. It can moisturise the skin without making it greasy, which makes it a great buy for those with oily skin. It treats the cells on the epithelial level of the skin which is why it's recommended by dermatologists to remove tan, treat sunburn and stretch marks.

Drinking aloe vera juice early in the morning on an empty stomach can aid digestion and cure stomach discomfort. It is rich in anti-oxidants which reduce free radicals in the body and boost your immunity. It is also a good source of protein so it helps muscle development and gives you copious amounts of energy.

You can dice the aloe vera gel into small pieces and blend. It is advisable to mix this with some other fruit or vegetable juice, honey or lemon as aloe vera has a naturally bitter taste. You can also use the leaves of aloe vera, blend them, strain and drink.
